Missy Higgins is set to embark on another North American tour

In a world littered with disposable pop – Missy Higgins is a welcome relief: passionate, sincere and proudly Australian.

Missy Higgins is from Melbourne and has enjoyed phenomenal success in her homeland in spite – or perhaps because – of shunning the usual synthetic packaging and tabloid tackiness. Instead she’s adopted a more timeless approach, relying on her undeniable songs and unforgettable live performances to build a genuine and gimmick free connection with her audience.
Missy’s new album, “On A Clear Night”, retains the hallmarks of her earlier work – irresistible melodies and ‘arrow through the heart’ lyrics delivered by a voice that clearly means it. However, this time around the tracks benefit from the empathetic production of Mitchell Froom who helmed the first three Crowded House albums as well as works by other quality artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney and the Finn Brothers.

The new album also showcases the changing worldview of a more self-assured artist. There’s a quiet strength to these new works, which suggests a more confident young woman. She’s grown up in public and “On A Clear Night” is the diary she’s kept along the way…
