The Ol' Razzle Dazzle

Missy Higgins

She did it without farewell tours or press releases. Instead she just told those closest to her that she was walking away from music and she got on with a new life. University. A share house. Some volunteer work. No photo’s in the papers; no raves on the blogs.

This extraordinary decision wasn’t made on a whim. In 2007 she’d released her sophomore album “On A Clear Night” in Australia to critical raves and more ARIA Awards. The follow up to her freakishly popular debut “The Sound Of White”, her second album actually became the highest selling Australian release for that year and in 2008 Missy relocated to the U.S. to support its release there. Naturally that meant lots and lots of touring. After more than a year “Where I Stood” was inches from being certtified gold in the U.S. and she was selling out large theatres but the grind was taking its toll.

Review

Five years on from two hugely successful albums, Missy has come back with all her might. A stint at university, some volunteer work and a whole lot of time out has given her a clear view of where she wants to be, and thankfully that happens to be the singer-songwriter of passion that we remember. Recorded in Nashville, Missy has written this collection with a fresh sound but, as always, there’s plenty of attitude amongst the lyrics. It’s good to have you back, Missy!
