Missy @ Beachland (7/20)

Sunday, July 20th 2008

In a world littered with disposable pop Missy Higgins is a welcome relief.. passionate, sincere and proudly Australian. The 23 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne 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.

My favorite Missy Higgins Tunes to sing really loud when I am alone in the car is Sugarcane (So, run, run fast sugarcane) and Peachy ("Life is peachy...without me")

Missy will be in concert Sunday at Beachland Ballroom, at 8pm, $15.00 www.missyhiggins.com
