About Mile Twelve

This fresh, hard-driving young group beautifully walks the line between original and traditional bluegrass. Fast gaining recognition for outstanding performances in bluegrass and folk circles, Mile Twelve's Evan Murphy, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Nate Sabat, BB Bowness, and David Benedict write captivating songs and daring instrumental pieces from diverse influences.

Since the group formed in 2014, Mile Twelve has quickly been on the rise. After releasing their 6-track, self-titled EP, the band toured extensively throughout the U.S., Ireland, and Canada, including performances at several major festivals -- Grey Fox, FreshGrass, Wind Gap, and Joe Val. A track from their EP was featured on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction’s Hand Picked with Del McCoury, and another was included in Spotify’s Fresh Bluegrass 2015 playlist.

Onwards, their debut, full-length album, was recorded in a Nashville studio in March 2016 and released on October 27 this year.  Click here to listen to one of their new songs. 

. . . a group of five accomplished bluegrass musicians who write, sing, and play like the wind. Serious players who have serious fun, Mile Twelve is a group to watch in the coming decade.
— Tim O'Brien, Multi-instrumentalist & Grammy Award Winner
