It’s been a while between drinks for Aussie songstress Missy Higgins, but it seems the break has done her good. At her hometown gig, she appeared at once cool, calm and collected while also showing off some pretty talented mates she’d brought along for the ride.


Her new album, The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, shows a fuller sound for Higgins and one that is much less reliant on piano....

In collaboration with an array of Australian artists, the Melbourne Zoo will be hosting the Twilight Acts for 2013, a celebration of fauna, music and activism against animal extinction.

Our entrée to this year’s excellent Queenscliff Music Festival was provided by Howlin’ Steam Train who served up Southern fried country, swamp-infested blues and butt-shakin’ boogie rock with a '60s garage twist. The mind-bending King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard proved to be masters of controlled mayhem. The band’s Theremin-spiked echo-laden madness transported us to another galaxy and...

Missy Higgins came, saw, conquered, and then disappeared for what felt like an eternity. While so many artists in the past have cried foul at the suggestion they should somehow be saving the world, Higgins seemed to journey into an existential crisis surrounding the notion that she wasn’t doing enough. The story has been told a million times since her return – a turbulent, emotionally-charged...

The recent Age profile of Missy Higgins was ridiculous, in part because of the drama pumped into her brief departure from the spotlight, in part because she appears to have found herself in an ashram. Missy personal journey through Eat Pray Love is the stuff of excruciatingly dumb privilege and her two years of soul searching capped off with a blast of yoga retreat enlightenment has been...

Fresh from scoring her third consecutive number one album, Missy Higgins staged an arresting performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre. First to the stage though was Butterfly Boucher, a multi-instrumentalist with an abundance of charisma. She charmed the crowd effortlessly, her enigmatic and often eccentric means to neat pop songs winning praise from patrons, not to mention her wicked sense of...

Hey, did anyone notice that Missy Higgins quit music for a few years? Sneaky little pianist. She’s been living in a share house, apparently, throwing off her identity as Australia’s most popular songstress in pursuit of greater meaning and happiness. It didn’t work out though, so she’s back to singing. Unashamed Desire is a big old plonker of a piano tune with some dark muttering in...
