Sugar & the Mint got their start (as a band) with The Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona in February 2011. Students were, initially, chosen by audition and formed as a youth cultural music conservatory group. In 2014, Sugar and the Mint (Generation) parted ways with Sharlot Hall Museum, (after the program lost funding) and ventured out on its own. They have since become a professional and dynamic young musical group. They play a blend of new old-time, contemporary bluegrass and indie-folk music.

The Lucky Losers were born in the summer of 2013 on a deserted road in Sedona, Arizona. With a Willie Dixon song on the stereo, Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz spontaneously began to sing together and felt a spark of magic. So it was, that two seasoned blues musicians came together to begin a new adventure, inspired by the vanishing art of duet singing.

Missy likens her musical approach to Soul dipped in Blues. While you wrap your head around that description, consider the early influence of her parent’s extensive record collection of soul, R&B, blues, jazz and gospel. Her mother fanned Missy’s interest in singing early by entering her in a children’s talent contest and practicing with her after school. Missy started singing and performing at six, and particularly loved listening to songs that told stories like those by Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, The Staples Singers and Teddy Prendergrass.
