MUSIC FOR YOUR EARS | REVIEW My Baby’s Away By Miskimon Brothers

My Baby’s Away by the Miskimon Brothers introduces us to a musical journey
rooted in decades of experience and a dedication to their craft. Hailing from Dundalk,
Maryland, USA, Tim and Mark Miskimon embarked on their musical odyssey as pre-
teens, forming the band BASEMENT FLOOR in the mid-1970s. Their journey through
the 1980s and 1990s involved numerous live shows on the US East Coast, coupled with
recording contracts that unfortunately soured due to publishing disputes. Undeterred,
the brothers decided to take control of their musical destiny by establishing their own
studio in 1991.
Over the past 20 years, Tim and Mark have released four self-produced albums,
showing their musical versatility under different band names like Empire and Sons Of
Riley. The most recent endeavour, SHENANDOAH SUNRISE, marks a return to their
country roots, with the first single, MY BABY’S AWAY, leading the charge.
Set against the backdrop of the COVID-19 lockdowns, the Miskimon Brothers
found an opportunity to focus on their music, resulting in over 50 recorded and mixed
songs. The upcoming album promises a blend of classic country, light rock, and
Americana, providing a diverse musical experience. Tim Miskimon reflects on the
lockdown period, stating that it forced them to reevaluate their careers, music, and lives,
leading to a renewed commitment to sharing their unheard music with the public.
My Baby’s Away sets the stage for the forthcoming album, infusing country and
easy listening genres with its distinctive qualities. The track boasts a memorable chorus,
an astonishing melody, and an overall optimistic vibe. The upbeat vocals, catchy tones,
and appealing lyrics make it a versatile and enjoyable piece that suits various moods
and moments. The refreshing sound and attractive voice of the Miskimon Brothers
contribute to the sheer musical quality that permeates the track.
Instrumentally, the guitars and percussion employed by the hard-working band
enhance the song’s sound quality, offering a harmonious and relaxing musical
experience. The superb instrumentalists demonstrate their skill, creating an immersive
sonic landscape that complements the overall composition.
What stands out the most is the song’s ability to project positive vibes, driven by
its outstanding melody. The track is convincing and magnetic, drawing listeners in with
its infectious energy. It’s not just a song; it’s a lively experience that doesn’t demand a
significant effort to follow and enjoy. The mid-tempo pace and smooth music contribute
to the overall appeal of My Baby’s Away, creating an uplifting and fast-paced rhythm
that elevates the listener’s mood.
All in all, My Baby’s Away by the Miskimon Brothers is more than just a single;
it’s a proof to resilience, musical craftsmanship, and a renewed commitment to sharing
their art with the world. As a preview of the upcoming album, this song reveals the
brothers’ ability to infuse positivity and liveliness into their music, making it a highly

recommended listen for anyone seeking a refreshing and engaging musical experience.
The Miskimon Brothers, with their rich musical history, have crafted a release that
resonates with both the heart and soul, promising a musical journey worth undertaking.
