The Missy Werner Band

Introducing Missy Werner. Born, raised, and a resident of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, Missy has carved a niche in the region as a respected vocalist and musician. In an era where many performers are frequently compared to others, she has developed a distinctive, easily recognizable voice. Whether performing a hard hitting traditional song or a tender ballad, she makes the adjustment and delivers.

 Missy formed her touring band after recording a 2009 solo project, "Drifting and Dreaming", one that gained her a large amount of national and worldwide attention. That same band remains intact today. Their late 2011 album release, "Three Kinds of Lonesome", also received excellent reviews from the industry. It was on the list of most downloaded Bluegrass albums on AirPlay Direct in 2012 and she currently ranks #8 on their all-time list of Bluegrass downloads, and was #22 on The Roots Music Report Top Bluegrass albums of 2012.  Her latest release, "Turn This Heart Around" featuring her band and also well respected colleagues was just released with two previously released singles from that project already making the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay chart. 

One of the brightest stars of the historically vital Cincinnati area bluegrass scene, Missy Werner’s already earned the loyalty of local fans, and the respect of her bluegrass colleagues across the country and around the world. She’s now set the stage for a much bigger audience to hear—and enjoy—one of the strongest talents to emerge from the region in a long, long time.

"Werner’s previous two albums, particularly 2011’s Three Kinds of Lonesome, earned some nice praise from the Bluegrass world, but the accomplished Turn This Heart Around feels like a career-changer, the kind of recording that should put the singer/mandolinist and her band in an even bigger spotlight." - Mike Breen - Cincinnati City Beat
