• Learn Bass with Missy Raines

A Note from Missy

Thank you!

This is me, waiting to go on stage, and while I didn’t know this photo was being taken, I do have an idea what may have been going through my head at the time.  The same thing that always goes through my head right before I head out on stage…
Let my joy come through, let me make a difference. 
This is not to say that some adrenaline-induced ‘stage’ nerves with less-positive mantras aren’t competing for my attention at the same time…But years of experience have helped me to keep most of those at bay, and concentrate on the real reason I chose this life.  To give my joy of music a venue- and to (hopefully) make a difference.
So, it is with great sincerity that I thank you all for the nomination as  IBMA Bass Player of the Year.
