Biography

In her first new song in five years – “Unashamed Desire” – Missy Higgins sings defiantly that “I’ve got nothing to hide”.

It’s a bold clarion call for where she’s at these days. But until recently the acclaimed singer/songwriter was still keeping one thing secret …

“I quit”.

What a voice! A voice which reaches in and grabs you and won't let go.
Within 30 seconds of hearing Missy sing I was scouring the internet, buying everything I could find that she had released. This cd has been playing in my car continuously for a week.
The Sound of White is an extremely mature album for such a young singer, with a superb turn of phrase and simple musical arrangements and it's great to hear someone sing with such a strong Australian accent.
She covers the usual subjects of love lost and found but there is also a darker side to some of her music. Listen, for example, to "River". A quite jolly tune, but listen to the lyrics and a disturbing picture emerges.
The recent single "Ten Days" stands out as does "Scar", which tells of the pressures brought to bear by partners in relationships, and "The Special Two" - full of regret for a mistake made. "Don't Ever" paints a picture of love and hope whilst the openining lines of "Nightminds" are sung so beautifully, it'll break your heart.
There are a couple of songs which I'm not too fond of, "Casualty" being one, but overall this a fantastic first album from a singer I believe we'll hear more of in the future. In this world of manufactured pop this album makes refreshing change and she deserves every success.

What can I say other than WOW? Melissa Higgins is simply an amazing raw talent. I was introduced to her music a year ago when a friend returned from her travels and I've got to admit that in that year I've become a huge fan.

Her debut album 'the sound of white' is a mixture of material where the lyrics will make you laugh, smile and cry all in the one album! Each song is written from the heart, with not a single weak track!! My personal favourites include 'Don't ever', 'Scar' and 'Nightminds'.

Although Missy's music is fabulous on cd, nothing can compare to this ladys voice live! She tours the UK every year, you missed her this summer as she's already been and gone (what an amazing experience that was!!) but be sure to catch her next year!! She's a relatively undiscovered talent here in the UK so her gigs are small and intimate.

If you can't wait to see her live in person then you can purchase her dvd from her official website which has been mentioned in previous reviews!

Roll on album number 2!!!!!

Enjoy . . . . . . . . x

And as for the individual who said that her accent was grating??? Go and wash your ears out as you obviously don't recognise talent when you hear it!!!!!!!

This album is absolutely fantastic. I was recommended the album by an aussie mate. The music is quite chilled, but more rocky than Norah Jones. Some people describe her as a female James Blunt, but it is more upbeat than that. There isn't one song on the album that I don't like. Buy it!

Having only had this album a week, I should probably wait to review it but so far I am suitably impressed with Missy Higgins' debut album. It is hard to place her in any one category, I can definitely see why she is compared to Alanis Morisette, and perhaps a little of Tori Amos in there too.
My favourite song is not on this version of the album, and is called 'They Weren't There', a haunting tale of love and loss. Instant attractions to the album are 'Scar', 'Ten Days' and the title track 'The Sound of White'.
Don't be put off by the reviewer who thinks she is mimicking a cockney accent. Her brusk Australian accent makes a change from the Americanisation (or should that be -zation?) of nearly all bands and singers nowadays.
Overall a solid start for Missy, and a must for anyone who appreciates heartfelt lyrics with mature songwriting.

Saw the video for Ten Days and was blown away by the song and her sound, she has an accent which does sound a bit cockney to me but that does not detract from the beauty of this album. Scar and Ten days are my favorites but the other tracks are of the same qualtiy. Go to website to view the videos [...] .. youll be hooked. The only issue is that there is one song missing "they werent there", shame fantastic song , not sure if it is on the australian import,equally fantastic. You wont be diappointed if you buy this album

Missy Higgins is a breath of fresh air. Finally, a female singer with real talent and ability - and she writes her own songs! I went to a ray lamontagne gig the other night, and she was supporting. As soon as I got home I bought her album. The album is simply gorgeous, and she is so unbelievably talented. She glides through slow, fast, angry, love, jazz songs with effortless talent & aching passion. If anything this album does not do her live ability credit. I recommend it to absolutely anyone with love of music.

Thank god for amazon otherwise I never would have discovered this amazing talent! Missy Higgins is fantastic. The kind of music i love at the moment is James Blunt, KT Tunstall, Daniel Powter, Jamie Cullum etc, but Missy Higgins fills the gap that still remained. I completely disagree with the person who said it's the kind of album you thought KT Tunstall's was going to be because both are fantastic. Even though I bought this only a couple of hours ago I know it's not going to leave my cd player for a long, long while. If you like Norah Jones, KT, Daniel Powter's slower songs, Anna Nalick or maybe a more upbeat interesting Dido then this is for you. Stand-out tracks are The Special two, nightminds, ten days, scar and this is how it goes. buy it and don't look back!
