Mr. Missy isn’t an Osmond, but he sure is a little bit country and a little bit rock n’ roll. As with both country and rock, the greatest songs are about love and lust and all the things in between. So, it’s no surprise that Looking for You is exactly that. Marc Robichaud, aka Mr. Missy himself, explains that the album is all about finding “the one”.
The album is the true story of one man not realizing what he was looking for was right in front of him.
With influences ranging from bluegrass and country to Americana folk to southern rock to the classics of the 50s and 60s, Mr. Missy’s sound would fit well on modern pop, country, and rock radio stations. There’s an undeniable country flair, but the various other elements bring the sound into a realm far more reaching and broader than standard country music.
The title track to the album (video below) is a perfect place to start.
If you – like I – struggle with modern country music, this may not be fully for you. However, I urge you to give it a try, as Robichaud and his band of musical misfits craft some great tunes. The album, designed to be listened to as a story from front to back, works both as a unified vision and as strong individual tracks if you prefer your music in smaller doses.
