The Journey of an Australian Music Icon
Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins has enjoyed phenomenal success with her irresistible melodies and ‘arrow through the heart’ lyrics, delivered by a striking voice that clearly means it.
After touring the globe with her undeniable songs and unforgettable live performances, Missy’s highly acclaimed ‘The Sound Of White’ (ARIA Album Of The Year featuring the hits ‘Scar’, ’Ten Days’ and ’The Special Two’), ‘On A Clear Night’ (featuring North American top 20 airplay hit ‘Where I Stood’ plus Australian #1 single ‘Steer’) and ‘The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle’ (featuring ‘Everyone’s Waiting’ and ‘Hello Hello’) have sold over two millions copies globally.
Missy appeared twice on the cover of Australia’s Rolling Stone magazine. She is a five-time chart topper and nine-time ARIA Award winner (Australia’s Grammys).
Missy began 2020 by releasing new single ‘Carry You’ written by Tim Minchin for his TV show ‘Upright’, which peaked at #5 on iTunes and was featured on the ARIA Album Chart #1 compilation ‘Music From The Home Front’. The song was also nominated for Song of the Year at the 2021 APRA Music Awards. Missy capped off the year with the release of standalone single ‘When The Machine Starts’.
Late 2021, Missy featured on a hip hop track by Birdz and she also released lead single “Edge Of Something” from her new mini-album Total Control. The Total Control mini-album was inspired initially by musical fragments Missy pieced together to fit certain scenes in the soundtrack to the TV Series of the same name. The songs pick up themes of exploitation and female empowerment that run through Total Control and which also dominated real world headlines last year as a string of abuse allegations emerged from Parliament House.
