Keep Lying by Donna Missal

Back before Shazam, and general access to the internet on your phone, I had to search far and wide for the songs I heard on TV shows or in movies. I would often sit through to the end of the credit reel in the movie theater, because that's where the full song listing lies - at the very end. Even then, I had to look quick, because the words scroll so quickly when you're actually looking for something!

Earlier this week, I was catching up on House of Lies (a show I thoroughly recommend), and this lovely melody started playing in the background. I was streaming from my phone and had to rewind a few times to catch the lyrics. One, quick Google search later and bam; I'm listening to Keep Lying by Donna Missal on repeat. Thank you, modern technology. 

Ms. Missal is classified as an alternative artist, but I get a blue-eyed soul vibe from her vocals. Heads up, this track is tagged as explicit content (not too racy, but don't blast it with the kiddos in the car). I'm looking forward to a full EP in the future!

  1. Um loooooooove, just listened to the track and its definitely more bluesy than alternative. Charles and I o-d on House of Lies this past winter during our few snow days. I didn't realize the new season out. Def need to catch up! Doug Guggenheim is my low-key fave character on the show haha.

    1. This is the last season, and it's alot different from the others, but the art direction and song selections are still on point!

  2. I heard the first 5 seconds and fell in love. Her voice is so amazing. And she's so beautiful. I started watching that show some time ago and sorta forgot about it. Not that it was bad or anything, I just didn't have Shotime to continue with the series. If there's music like this, I may need to dive back into it.

    1. I didn't start watching until the "free preview" weekend that Comcast has every year. Then I had to keep binging every year to catch up! I've never been one to pay for premium channels, but between House of Lies, Shameless, and Nurse Jackie, Showtime would be worth the extra coins IMO.
