The Little Miss is the moniker of Los Angeles-based artist, Hayley Johnson, who created the project in the spirit of old-timey folk and country-western music.
With the addition of her bandmates, “The Cactus Kissers,” she has since found a way to blend the old with the new, focusing on maintaining the vintage western flair of a Marty Robbins while introducing the more contemporary existential and comedic elements of a Father John Misty (but with, perhaps, a *little* less self-loathing). This unique blending of genres, in combination with Johnson’s ever-relatable lyrics, has become Johnson’s signature: a presence that is equal parts heartbreakingly earnest and tongue-in-cheek.
Songs from The Little Miss’ debut EP, American Dream, have been featured on KCRW, Billboard, Wide Open Country, Tidal’s Country Rising playlist and, most recently, the FX television show, Better Things. The band has played at Bradley, CA music festival, Lightning in a Bottle, The Annie O Music Series atop The Standard in New York, and have been working to become a staple of the Los Angeles Americana circuit. The Little Miss’ debut full-length album, Best Self, is due out in Summer 2020.
