HER style is raw and edgy, with shades of post punk & hard rock references to the angst driven post glam apocalyptic days of the 90’s grunge era, when bands like Sound Garden, Black Crowes & Pearl Jam reigned supreme & the Melbourne rock scene was alive and well, Mish was an emerging blues rock singer, playing two nights a week for four years in St Kilda, in the early 90’s. Mish's bluesy Robert Plant style & influences like Tina Turner, Janis Joplin to Ricky Lee Jones was giving way to a heavier sound, she formed her first original rock metal band "Steel" in 95'playing all the regular rock venues & recording an album which was never commercially released.
HER melds some of Mish’s favourite influences like The Rolling Stones, 70's Funk Queen Betty Davis & Skunk Anansie. Musically its a fusion of Blues, soul, funk & punk rock.
