From the first time I saw Misty Boyce (a check back in Now I’ve Heard Everything shows that to have been exactly 4 1/2 years ago), I knew I had seen someone with an incredible amount of raw talent. And nothing that’s happen since has done anything than convince me that I was right.
Misty hasn’t been around her home base at The Rockwood Music Hall as much as she had been over the last two years, having first moved to LA and then playing keys on several tours with Sara Bareilles (she has yet another tour with Sara coming up shortly).
But tonight, Misty comes back to The Rockwood. This full band show celebrates Misty’s forthcoming CD, The Life (the official release date is still up in the air but supporters of Misty’s Pledge Music campaign have already received their copies of the record). I’ve had a chance to hear The Life and can tell you that its blend of ballads, rock and pop makes it the strongest work that Misty has produced up to this point.
With all the friends and fans Misty has in New York, and the fans she’s made on the road who are coming into town just to see this show, there’s a good chance it will sell out. Getting a ticket in advance would be the smart thing to do.
