MISSY BURGESS

Website: missyburgess.com

“you can hear the weight of experience Missy brings to her strong original material and to the interpretive voice she brings to standards and the gems from other writers she chooses to cover”(Mike Regenstreif)

From daydreaming in her brothers’ tree house to pursuing a career in the world of schizophrenia, to developing and delivering educational programs in the fields of mental health and addiction, Missy Burgess has come full circle. She is back to daydreaming. (Although it never really left!) Now the dreams are expressed in her songs.

Missy has performed on stages from The National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Canada to The Angola Prison for Women in Louisiana. She also sings with a Tom Waits Tribute group that will be touring in the near future. Wherever she is playing, fans come to hear her powerful and moving voice.

She has recorded 3 albums, Pour Me A Song, Lemon Pie and, her most recent, Play Me Sweet. (missyburgess.com)
