Friday Night with Missy

Melissa “Missy” Morrison Higgins, 30, is an Australian singer-songwriter, musician and actress.  She learned to play classical piano from age six but realized she wanted to be a singer at about 12 when she appeared in a Primary School production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  Hoping for more freedom, she urged her parents to send her to a boarding school attended by her siblings. There she took up the piano again, this time playing jazz. She was introverted and found that piano practice helped her cope with living at boarding school.


  1. LOVE Missy Higgins–her CD “On a Clear Night” is wonderful. I would also encourage you to check out Priscilla Ahn, Jenny Scheinman, Rachel Yamagata, Sarah , Sonya Kitchell, and Vienna Tang. Have a great weekend, David! 🙂

  4. Beautiful – thank you for this, I’ve not heard of her before! 🙂
