Missy Andersen – In The Moment

Missy Andersen – In The Moment
Main Squeeze Records – MS 1202
Born in Motown and now living in San Diego, Missy Andersen is unabashed in bringing back the good old times of soul, jazz and blues. With her talents, she should have not the slightest regret in doing music her way. She has one of those smoky, intensely passionate crooning voices that you cannot help but think “this is going to be a REAL party” the second you hear the snappy juke-joint shuffle of “Rent Party.” “Night Stalker” has this gritty, secret agent film feel; slightly dangerous and extremely potent both vocally and musically. “More Than Enough” shows that Missy can handle more balladic songs with both grace and seething emotion. “Same Things Make You Laugh” harkens to the days of Otis Redding or Wilson Picket with a funky groove, tasty licks and soul-grasping vocals. Missy has only been recording since 2009, but it is obvious her heart lies with music made 5 decades previously. For anyone who is nostalgic for music of that era and wants to hear someone who can create music now that sounds just as good as some of the best of that era, you need to seriously get “In The Moment.” – MW
