Miss Derringer is an American, Los Angeles based pop/underground rock band, fronted by singer Elizabeth McGrath and her husband/songwriter Morgan Slade. Rounding out the band's lineup are Sylvain de Muizon (bass), Cody James (drums) and Ben Shields (lead guitar). Miss Derringer, although it sounds like a singer or a single person, is a complete band.
The band's lyrics deal with "honkytonk" subjects like prison, poverty, sobriety, God, death, marriage, murder, and alcohol.
In 2007, Miss Derringer released the 2 song ep "Black Tears" electronically, on Stay Gold Records. Black Tears was produced by John Kastner of The Doughboys and All Systems Go! The song "Black Tears" and its remix version have been featured on the television show How I Met Your Mother
In 2008 the band signed a "strategic partnership" marketing deal with noted Advertising Agency Deutsch Inc. In late 2008, Miss Derringer was selected by Morgans Hotel Group as one several bands to participate in their "Recess is on" campaign, and was filmed performing a live version of their song "better Run Away From Me" at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles.
In February 2009, Miss Derringer signed a record deal with Los Angeles label Triple X Records, who released the band's third album Winter Hill in July 2009.
