MISSY LANCASTER TO RELEASE HER EP MISSY ON FRIDAY JULY 8TH
Missy originally released the six song set independently in January this year, debuting at #9 on the ARIA Country Album chart. Now signed to Sony Music Entertainment Australia, the MISSY EP will be re-released and the video for first single ‘That’s What I’m Talking About’ launches today. The infectious country- pop track has already amassed over two months on The Music Network Official Top 20 Country Airplay Chart and was the #1 most played song on the KIX Country Radio network which hits over 40 cities around Australia.
Missy travelled to Nashville in October 2015 to write and record the EP with acclaimed songwriter & producer Lindsay Rimes (credits include Troye Sivan, The McClymonts, LoCash). The end result was a mix of songs co-written by Missy including “Don’t Wanna Say Goodnight” (written with Morgan Evans) and songs from some of Nashville’s top songwriters. “I love writing songs,” says Missy, “And I also love the challenge of taking a song by another writer and making it my own. The songs on Missy really suit where I’m at. I’m twenty-one. I’m having fun and my heart is definitely not broken (laughs). These songs. They showcase my personality.”
Missy’s sense of fun comes across in spades in the music video for ‘That’s What I’m Talking About’ which was shot on location in Sydney and Nashville. The video shows Missy in the studio writing and recording and having fun on location of a phot shoot. The studio is a place where Missy is spending more and more time as she writes for her first full length album release.
Missy has also been spending more and more time on the road, performing close to 100 shows in the last 18 months and with new dates being added to her tour diary all the time. Missy will re-launch the EP at the Tamworth Hats Off to Country Festival and will also make her debut appearances at iconic events including Gympie Muster and Deni Ute Muster in the coming months.
Missy Lancaster is a 21-year old country singer from Picton, NSW whose fresh sound and genuine style has lead to support spots with Australian superstars such as The McClymonts, Troy Cassar-Daley and Adam Harvey along with a growing fanbase that have already taken Missy’s music up the charts.
Alongside her own songs, Missy has worked with such names as Morgan Evans, Josh Kerr (who co-wrote Country-Pop star Kelsea Ballerini’s #1 hits ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’ and ‘Dibs’), Jason Duke (who co-wrote ‘Dibs’ for the aforementioned Ballerini and just scored a cut on Keith Urban’s latest album), Phil Barton (who wrote the #1 country hit for Lee Brice, ’A Woman Like You’) and Lindsay Rimes.
“I am a country music singer,” Missy explains when quizzed. “I’m proud to be a country singer. It’s such a diverse genre of music and I think it’s ok to bring different elements into the country base. I’ve grown up mainly listening to country and that’s the style that comes naturally to me.”
