Missy Roback
Just Like Breathing (Hear Kitty Records)

By: Alex Steininger

San Francisco singer-songwriter Missy Roback's debut, Just Like Breathing, is a moody, oft-dark, brooding blend of acoustic guitars and piano, an elegant and roots-y approach that helps propel Roback's folk-pop sound beyond those of her peers.

Her plaintive voice steps the songs up a few more notches, giving the songs the depth and follow-through they need to really make an impact. This is an exceptional debut from a singer-songwriter that should, by her third full-length, be a nationally recognized act. I'll give it an A-.
