Donna Missal has made strides in her younger years by performing with local rock bands in New Jersey. In 2015, she broke through into the mainstream with viral hit “Keep Lying,” and suddenly her career accelerated faster than the Grove Street Path Train to Manhattan. Meanwhile, Missal has traded the East Coast for California and her star is nevertheless still rising. On debut album This Time she shows her impressive range as a singer. In America you have a nice term for the kind of pop music that Missal performs: belters. And there’s nothing quite like that feeling of singing every word with maximum conviction and power.
