Exclusive Video: Missy Higgins Is Back in Full Force

July 26th, 2012


When she comes to Radio City Music Hall this fall, opening for Gotye, she’ll likely be onstage, singing the female part on “Somebody That I Used to Know.” But by then, we think Missy Higgins won’t be treated like a stranger. Not at all. The Australian’s new album, the hook-heavy The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, is packed with tunes that American Songwriter says will thrive “in a live setting where they are allowed room to breathe.” See for yourself on this stripped-down version of “Hello Hello,” recorded in an under-construction Brooklyn high-rise for The Bowery Presents Live.

The talented Australian singer-songwriter also sat down with us to discuss when she knew she wanted to be a musician, parental advice and working through writer’s block. Watch the interview here, and make sure you don’t miss out on more videos like these—uploaded every week on The Bowery Presents Live on YouTube—and live-streaming shows, like Bloc Party at Terminal 5 on 8/8, by subscribing to our channel.
