Missy Armstrong (lead, harmony vocals, guitar) "I grew up being exposed to many kinds of music," Missy recalls. "My dad really loved music, he didn’t officially sing or play anything but he could remember every lyric to almost any song and we would whistle constantly." Country and gospel harmonies captivated her at an early age, so that she "grew up singing in our small country church whenever I could." Then the bluegrass bug bit her and for a time she ran with her own outfit, the Missy Kay Band, before signing on with the Detour boys. Her greatest influences these days are Eva Cassidy, Etta James, Lynn Morris, Dorothy Moore, Anne Murray, Tony Rice, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly, EmmyLou, and Patty Loveless.
Lloyd Douglas (banjo, guitar, mandolin) is Detour's newest member. Lloyd is widely regarded as one of the finest 5-string players. He toured with The Warrior River Boys, Jim & Jesse and the Virginia Boys for several years, worked with Lynn Morris, and has been Michael Cleveland's first-call stand-in on banjo. He lives with his family in Alpena, Michigan, where he regularly lives the bluegrass dream in the driver's seat of a freight locomotive.
Jeremy Darrow (bass, harmony vocals) is a professional musician currently hailing from Nashville, where he is a fixture in the local session and stage concert scene. A native North Carolinian, he earned his MAT in Music Education at the Philadelphia University of the Arts, and toured with the Dixie Beeliners as well as Jeff and Vida. In addition to teaching and session work in the Nashville region, Jeremy's double bass drives the Detour beat.
