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.

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!
