Missy FogartyHow can someone with a conservatory degree in voice from the Eastman School of Music end up spinning rock and other crazy stuff on the airwaves?  Easy!  Suppression never lasts too long…most of my radio listening was done on the sly and my obsession with the Beatles, the Roches, and jazz was looked down upon from on high while I continued to nurture my vocal talent by cutting it on opera (also a great love of mine) and, under threat of disinheritence, in a rock band along with some bass playing and songwriting.


I make my living by singing some kind of music usually pigeonholed as early, which has some vague similarity to the band Dead Can Dance, and to be asked to provide a bio for the WDFH website is weird, since I always have to update my singing bio saying I’ve sung here, there, and everywhere, except with YOU, so could you just please hire me?!   Here at WDFH I can share my love and knowledge of the other side of my musical life… and I didn’t learn any of it from the conservatory curriculum!
