What does it mean to break the music mold? The blissrock journey of Miss Bliss all began in the college town of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Miss Bliss, which began its musical journey in 1993 while living amidst the short lived British shoegaze scene, decided to take their very own music path when she sidestepped the growing popularity of psychedelic music–popular in the college towns of Michigan in the early 1990s–and instead created music filled with bliss and out-there space rock.
Miss Bliss performed throughout the 1990s, until they ended their journey together in 1999. Before that final split, however, Miss Bliss performed their exquisite, unique music–and even recorded three albums. Their first album, aptly titled Miss Bliss, was followed by Warm Sounds from a Cold Town–their second album received ecstatic reviews from local artists and those abroad. Their third CD, Loose Grooves and Lullabies, was much more radical than their earlier works. By this time in their music career, Miss Bliss had developed their sound to a more experimental sound, something quite different from the standard pop music popular at the time. Unfortunately, this third, amazing album was never properly released. This was due to a conflict with record labels. In 2000, the sole copy of the CD was sent to a European magazine, Losing Today, where it was given the title “record of the year.”
