"I first saw Missy at the Shout house, you know, the dueling piano bar that's packed every night in downtown San Diego, and was really impressed with her ability to entertain the crowd, playing any song they threw at her. Whether it be drums, bass, piano, guitar or vocals, it was a one woman show, of course the other performers were great too. I later discovered, after hitting her CD release in Hollywood one night, that she's actually a very gifted songwriter. Really dig the vibe!"
