Event description

Description

“One of the truly great voices of our time.”- PBS Australia

“Missy Andersen proves beyond a doubt that she’s the real deal.” - Washington Blues Society Bluesletter

Born in Detroit, as a child, Missy Andersen was exposed to her parent’s extensive music collection that included soul, R&B, blues, jazz, and gospel. It didn’t matter what the genre was as her favorite songs were always the ones that told a story. Later she would discover Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughn, and Billie Holiday and that eventually lead her to O.V. Wright, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, James Carr, Ray Charles, Ann Peebles, and Irma Thomas.

Missy began fronting bands in her early teens, playing local venues which quickly lead to doing studio sessions and performances as a background vocalist. She continued honing her skills and moved to San Diego, California where she met Heine, a seasoned musician visiting from Denmark.

Missy and Heine’s debut recording has received rave reviews from both critics and fans since its August 2014 release, the CD has maintained a steady appearance on four of the Roots Music Report album charts (Blues, Contemporary Blues, California, US Blues) as well as two song charts (Contemporary Blues, California) for radio play. The CD ended the year by being named one of Living Blues Radio Charts Top 50 Albums of 2014.
