‘With You Around’ is the latest release from Misty River, following their debut single, ‘Take This Love’, which is currently featuring in popular Netflix documentary ‘A Secret Love’. Carmen Phelan’s distinctive vocal stands out on this shimmering, summery song. It’s timeless, authentic music, rich in melody. The core of the London-based band is married duo Adam Morley (guitar) and Phelan on vocals and piano. On this song they are surrounded by a team of excellent players Jeremy Stacey (Ryan Adams, Ethan Johns) on drums, Andy Wallace (Ronnie Wood) on Hammond and banjo and Jody Linscott (Stevie Wonder) on percussion.
The band recorded the song at Eastcote Studios in London, and worked with six-time Grammy-winner Vance Powell in Nashville to complete it. The quality of the performance and production is clear. It all bodes well for the band’s debut album. Misty River have just announced that ‘Promises’ will be released in January 2021.
