missy higgins has one of this female smoky voices which is hard to get out of your head once you heard it. she comes from far down under, melbourne (australia), and is home in the alternative indie / pop-rock genre. it is easy to listen to her, her new album covers songs from smooth to upbeat:
she is a must to be checked out once she comes close to town, currently she is touring the southern hemisphere and will be over soon to north america, fingers crossed that she might pop over to europe as well. in the mean time listen into her two previous albums.
