Mile Twelve is a progressive string band from Boston, Massachusetts. Winners of the 2020 IBMA New Artist of the Year award, they have been making waves in the acoustic music community with their seamless blend of expertly-crafted songs, creative arrangements, and virtuosic execution. The band takes their name from the mile marker that sits at Boston’s southern border on Route 93, a road sign they’ve passed countless times while heading out on tour. They’ve found receptive audiences across the globe, touring throughout North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Recently, the band has released an EP of covers titled Roll the Tapes All Night Long. They draw from a wide array of influences — from Ralph Stanley to Los Lobos, from Darell Scott to Tattletale Saints — demonstrating the surprisingly flexible nature of their instrumentation at every turn. The project also features a who’s-who list of special guests: Billy Strings, Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers), Brittany Haas (Hawktail) and Bruce Molsky. Folk Alley says “Roll the Tapes All Night Long showcases Mile Twelve’s restless creativity, their ability to inhabit a song and turn it inside out to make it their own, even as they preserve the spirit of the original.”
After a busy summer of touring including stops at RockyGrass, IBMA Bluegrass Live! and Milwaukee Irish Fest, the band is gearing up to record its next full-length project in early 2022.
Justin Singleton is a singer/songwriter born, raised, and currently residing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Highly influenced by artists such as Tyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Nicholas Jamerson; Justin is known for his array of unreleased originals such as "Scarecrow", "No Doubt", "California Cougar", "Brewless", and "Roadkill Love".
Although can be found performing solo up and down the Delmarva area, Justin is know to regularly host shows alongside his backing band "The Shorebillies".
Having performed as far west as Kentucky and as far south as Texas, whenever asked of his end goal, Justin replies, "I want to spread my music as far as they'll let me, and for as long as they'll let me" - Justin Singleton
