Misty Miller began writing songs at age eight, and recorded her first album at age 15. Now, at the advanced age of 18 she has recorded the five-track Girlfriend EP, which will be released by the Sony imprint, Relentless. The young south Londoner claims Patti Smith, Iggy and the Stooges and The Velvet Underground as influences, so you can expect some lo-fi grit, and some righteous rocking. And you'll get it. Ms Miller demonstrates that age and gender are irrelevant -- it is about the spirit and performance.
I think you owe it to yourself to give Misty a chance. Test it out with a stream of "Little Drummer" and the video for the title track - I love those guitars, by the way. If you like it "Little Drummer", download it; it is free. and then stream the entire record below.
