Changes in hipville

Dillon HodgesNews from Missy Raines & The New Hip

Original guitarist Megan McCormick has departed to pursue a career in indie rock, and 17 year old Dillon Hodges – 2007 Winfield Flatpicking Champion – is stepping in.

Missy shares the mixed feelings that always accompany a personnel change.

“There’s no question Megan has played a crucial role in the realization of this band, I’m so glad she was there, it has been an amazing time! At the same time we couldn’t be happier with Dillon. He’s a brilliant player. He also has a musical maturity that belies his young age.”

The band’s self-titled short form CD is now available, with audio samples available online.
