Introducing Misty Gonzales and the 'Rock & Roll Freedom Show' to the World With Her 3-Song EP 'Hummingbird' and a Powerful Cirque du Soleil Inspired Stage Show February 2 & 23 at LA's Key Club

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2011) - When Misty Gonzales moved to L.A. to give things a go after a short time in San Diego, the multi-talented singer/songwriter received an inspirational bit of wisdom from an industry executive at a conference, "There's one type of person who doesn't succeed in the music business and that's the one who gives up too soon."

The "hippie rock queen" -- described by Music Connection magazine, which chose Misty as one of their Top 100 artists both 2009 and 2010 -- in 2011 is turning that line into exciting career prophecy. Her highly anticipated two shows at Key Club on Sunset Strip February 2 and 23 double as a release party for her infectious 3-song EP Hummingbird, a teaser for Rock & Roll Freedom Show, Misty's full length debut from her indie label FREEDOM CHILD ENTERTAINMENT, due in April. Her partner in FCE is Tom Wilson, owner of radio and television stations across the country.

Rock & Roll Freedom Show harkens back to an era when songwriters wrote about deep, meaningful issues and being a freewheeling spirit was an asset not a curse. The live stage show to the album is inspired in part by the Beatles 'Love' Cirque du Soleil. Misty's exciting visual stage show created around the album collection is an extension of the contemporary flair she brings to this nostalgic vibe. As she segues seamlessly from song to song, the singer is surrounded onstage by dynamic lighting, compelling visuals, aerialists, unicyclists, hula hoop dancers, pole dancers, stilt walkers and much more.

Misty's first single "Freedom Child," an emotional song about postwar stress experienced by soldiers and the freedom they fight for which allows us as Americans to pursue our dreams, was produced by Grammy nominee Warren Huart (The Fray, James Blunt, Daniel Powter). Misty is shooting a music video for "Freedom Child" complete with dramatic combat scenes out in the California desert in mid-January.
