As music is such a passion of mine, I'd like to create an ongoing soundtrack to my life. So, here it goes. I'll be posting a song each day that inspires me, fits my mood, or just gets me wanting to dance. Hopefully, you can find inspiration here, too, along with discovering new artists. Enjoy!

Ask me about tunes and suggest a song

Missy Higgin’s new album, The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, set for release on July 17, is certainly an evolvement from her last full-length album, On A Clear Night. She’s certainly taking more risks - with bird coos, wooden blocks, and warbling harmonica on “Watering Hole.” On “Temporary Love,” Missy expresses a more pop sound that seems to recall Adele’s influence. What’s great about what I’ve heard so far is that her vocals nicely stay the center of focus. She has a soothing and rich tone that would be sadly missed if she got too overproduced. She seems to have found a new confidence in her sound, which is exciting to hear. 

Check out additional new tracks from the upcoming album @missyhiggins on YouTube.

Missy is fabulous live, too, so I’m thrilled that I’ll get a chance to see her open at Red Rocks for Gotye this August. Tickets go on sale this Friday if you’re interested!
