In 2011, Missy recorded her first new songs in five years with local producer Brad Jones and co-producer Butterfly Boucher. Those recordings became The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, Missy’s third #1 studio album in her homeland which despite the five year wait, became the most acclaimed work of Missy’s extraordinary career. The album spent over three months in the Australian top 10 after its mid 2012 release and becameMissy’s first release to make the Billboard Top 100 in America.
Missy released the standalone single ‘Oh Canada’ in 2016 with 100% of net profits going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. The song was inspired by the tragic images of an infant Syrian refugee named Alan Kurdi being carried from the water by a soldier. A powerful animated video for ‘Oh Canada’, created in partnership with Caritas and World Vision, accumulated over 1 million views within a week of it’s release.
Mid 2016, Missy performed a series of sold out shows in her first North American tour in four years and she then closed the year with a handful of special concerts in Australia. Playing to over 25,000 fans, Missy’s Orchestral Concert Series saw her live band fused with some of Australia’s leading symphony orchestras.
Most recently, Missy released ‘Torchlight’ – a powerful, emotive piano ballad written for Australian film ‘Don’t Tell’ starring Rachel Griffiths and Jack Thompson.
