    Missy Higgins

    Here's one that I'm sure Salmacis is familiar with seeing how she's Australias best selling female artist of all time (or maybe he hates her for it) :D! I bought Missy after sampling the Sound of White EP and I have to admit her appeal came from her similarities to Sarah McLachlan which is no small task in itself. As I heard more, she also had the same brooding soulful quality as Fiona in her songs. For me this was win-win as those are two of my favorite female artist. Missy is on her own merits a great songwriter and tells a moving story without giving too much away! Here are my favorites from her!

    OH GOD NO! D:

    Sorry, but I can't stand her. Her voice only ever gets on my nerves, and her songs are so annoying it makes me want to smash something :banghead:

    P.S I don't hate anyone for selling records, how much you sell is negligable. I only dislike those who make shoddy music, and unfortunately Missy falls into that category.

    Interesting guys! It must be an Australian backlash! :lmao: I wouldn't say there's anything odd about her voice that should stand out enough to go on the verge of hating it especially since she noticably has very good control of it! To each their own though! :grinthumb

    There's nothing wrong with her singing, and I'm not doubting her ability, I just find her annoying XD

    The Melanie influence is stronger than ever!! :heheh:

    This style of singing seems to be quite popular and it doesn't sound bad to me. I like Where I Stood quite a bit and need to hear the first one again.

    Now I need to re-visit my Melanie thread sometime today or tonight!

    Good Stuff Soot. :grinthumb
