Folk Radio UK Reviews Missy Raines – Royal Traveller

Exceptional musical arrangements permeate the album throughout, and the choice of musical covers has been astutely made. The influences that Raines has garnered and absorbed are truly eclectic and reflected fully in this project. Kate Campbell’s Free World, Ola Belle & David Reed’s I’ve Endured, made famous in recordings by Del McCoury ̧ as well as Tim O’Brien ̧ are both given memorable re-workings, before two co-compositions, Under A Dark Sky, and To Here From There further underline her musical creativity. The latter being the track that I have had on repeat play, possibly the best song that Mary-Chapin Carpenter never wrote.
