iTunes Review

Listening to Higgins’ 2004 debut feels like reading her diary, as the Australian singer/songwriter speaks plainly but poetically about matters of the heart. Her charming directness comes to the fore on the affecting folk-pop of “Scar,” the intense break-up ode “Ten Days,” and especially “The Special Two,” where her nimble piano playing fuels a song that feels so personal, you wonder if you really should be eavesdropping. That’s the beauty of Higgins—she’s generous in sharing personal tales of love won and lost.

I See You've Painted Your Soul

There has been a plethora of young singer-songwriter of the fairer sex to come along lately that almost makes you wish the return of the Lilith Fair. There was the eclectic pop of the group Eisley, the introspective pop of Anna Nalick and the quirky country-pop of Kathleen Edwards. You can now add Missy Higgins to this group. Higgins is already a star in her native Australia who is now trying to join the like of INXS and Midnight Oil with some American success. The Sound of White is a polished album with soothing melodies and lush arrangements that will bring up comparisons to Sarah McLachlan. Higgins has a signature sound here on the album, but the song are diverse that that the album is worth repeat listenings. Higgins strong point is her songwriting. From deep (I see you've painted your soul into your guard) to longing for romance (I've tried cutting the rose, letting you go, but you're still the only one that feels like home).

Missy is Fantastic

I've been around since the Rolling Stones were young and Missy Higgins is one the best voices I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy hearing. Thank you Missy.

A Wonderful Debut

This album is a real treat, in a time when there are very few really good new songwriters on the music scene. I think Missy Higgins has an incredible career ahead of her. A couple of quick favorites - The Special Two, and Ten Days. But do yourself a favor and download the whole thing, and then go check out her live album, you won't be sorry!

With a flair for poignant ballads and pop/rock singles, Missy Higgins became one of Australia's most popular artists during the early 21st century. Her songwriting career began in Melbourne, where she attended boarding school and balanced her time between academics and music. Higgins' sister got ahold of "All for Believing," one of Missy's earliest songs, and mailed a copy to Australia's Triple J radio station without her sister's consent. The song ended up winning an unsigned artist competition...
