I tend to be a little (okay, a lot) dramatic, but I am wildly in love with Missy Higgins new CD, On a Clear Night. Thanks to i-Tunes Genius, this Australian singer/songwriter is a new, and very welcome addition to my playlist. The album is mostly acoustic with a folksy, blues-like feel, and Missy's smoky vocals are stunning. She reminds me in some ways of Ingrid Michaelson or maybe Colbie Caillat, though she's a bit more off the beaten path than Colbie's popular, mainstream tunes.
Anyway, just thought I'd share. I love being introduced to a new artist--thought you might, too.
From one of my favorite songs: Forgive Me
oh, my God
how you make it hard
not to pick the apple
pick the apple
and how I long to give it back
and I was on shaky land
lost and not sure
I opened my hand
and she held it like sinking sand
but all, all, all of my light is for you
home, home's anywhere you are too
so take this one fallen man on his knees
saying please, forgive me
