Rising New Jersey singer/songwriter Donna Missal's mighty set of pipes fit somewhere between the smoky pop softness of Lana Del Rey, the soulful strength and grit of Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard and the retro rocker howl of Janis Joplin. The songstress' trifecta appeal carries her with a lighted torch to the forefront of today's crowded musical landscape. Her striking debut single, "Keep Lying," blew up after it premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1. About the Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey) produced follow-up "Girl," Lowe said, " I love the modern production, the feel of it. But it also has like a timeless, latter-day Prince vibe to it."
Hailed by Milk as an "earth-shaking vocalist with unique resonance," she is featured on two tracks from Macklemore's latest album, Gemini: "Over It," which she co-wrote, and "Glorious." Missal also featured on Rudimental's "No Fear" and co-wrote Leon Bridges' "Bet Ain't Worth the Hand." "Power" – an original song she co-wrote with Baz Luhrmann and recorded for Netflix's The Get Down – won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Song. Her songs have also been licensed by such shows as House of Lies, Easy and The Vampire Diaries.
This Time is Missal's full-length debut on Harvest Records.
