Mipso: Live at Our State

Watch this Chapel Hill trio play a few songs from their upcoming album, "Dark Holler Pop," due out October 25, 2013.

When Jacob, Joseph, and Wood first played music together in 2010, they didn’t intend to start a band.

“We just thought it would be fun to play a few songs for this fundraiser in Chapel Hill,” said Jacob, the mandolin player, during their recent visit to the Our State office. “But since then we’ve played 160 or 170 shows.”

Mipso has experienced some success in a short time. Their first album, Long, Long Gone, received great reviews and put them in a position to share the stage with artists such as David Holt and the Steep Canyon Rangers.

“It’s kind of like pushing a snowball down a hill,” added Wood, leaning on his stand up bass.

Their sophomore release Dark Holler Pop is due out October 25.

    Wow! These guys are awesome! Wear can I buy their CD? It will make perfect Christmas gifts for my son and my Dad…and me.

  9. I love your idea of Live at Our State. Our band Jug Tucker was featured in the September issue. We will be traveling through Greensboro next week on our way to Asheville and would love to pick a few tunes for you. Please let us know if we can drop by with our instruments! Keep the music coming, sounds great.

    Loved your music – but had trouble understanding the lyrics. Maybe it was the acoustics or the mic arrangement in the Our State Lobby, but I suggest you find a way to separate the music from the lyritcs, lowering the volume, maybe, while singing, then turning up the volume on the instrmentals.
