Missy Bauman blends the traditional values of folk with an alternative edge to create "dreamy drug folk” - a free spirited trouble maker fighting for peace and change.
Missy's lyrics reflect her demeanour: a small town sweetheart full of life and hungry for adventure. With two Hamilton Music Awards under her belt, Missy studied Music Production as well as Songwriting and Performance at Seneca College. Her debut album, released May 2017, delves into her mood disorder, the after-affects of a miscarriage, and an abusive relationship, making the title “Don’t Fear the Dark” feel like a misnomer -- but with her bright and bold voice, she ties it effortlessly into the joys of being alive. Rrampt magazine describes the album as “...an exploration of the etheral. This is the work of a truly talented artist. [Missy is] a smart songwriter, and an interesting one.”
Sam and Desiree of Kaleidoscope Horse. Do not be afraid. You are normal. Painstakingly realistic whilst all-round fantastical. Theatrical dream psych from Toronto, ON. Will equally make you dance and cry.
