NO! She is a pirate!
Could you leave me with a Scar ar ar ar ahoy me hearties!
Continuing in the style of Kasey Chambers and The Waifs, Missy sings with a thick aussie accent that can be endearing to some and grating to others. They all sound like pirates singing shanties on their way to hidden treasures. I’m still in the undecided boat (or ship, geddit?) about the style.
Her songs are great, live she is enthralling and in person she is a sweet little pixie. But the aussie accent is a bit annoying, like when I got on the qantas plane after a year in England and covered my ears when the Australian pilot started talking. Yeah, I know, cultural cringe is bad and we should respect the things that make us not US or the UK.
Regardless, she is an excellent artist and has way more indie cred than Delta. I haven’t yet found any proof that she is gay or not, so for all you googlers who found your way here, I tell you this. I think she is one of those people who fall in love with the person regardless of what sex they are and at the moment my suspicion is that that person is a woman. Plus, she thinks I’m hot. LOL!!!!!
