has won nine ARIA awards and multiple APRA Awards. She has also received a Screen Music Award for Best Original Song composed for the Screen for Australian Film “Don’t Tell”.
Missy began 2020 by releasing single ‘Carry You’ written by Tim Minchin for his TV show ‘Upright’, and capped off the year with the release of “When The Machine Starts” a song focussing on positives that might be drawn from the year’s lockdown experiences.
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. Released early 2022, the Total Control mini-album was inspired initially by musical fragments Missy pieced together to fit certain scenes in the acclaimed TV Series Total Control soundtrack. 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.
The mini-album’s title track – a cover of the Motels’ 1980’s classic – takes on a whole new meaning in light of this backdrop and is sure to be a live highlight of Missy’s upcoming shows.
Over coming months Missy Higgins will headline two separate touring festivals at once – the beachy “Summersalt” and a new all-female event called “Wildflower”. The beloved singer/songwriter will also play gigs in cities from Darwin to Torquay, from Birdsville to Broken Hill.
