Missy Higgins Joins The Crash Test Dummies

Well, no, not the band...but, you'll see what I mean in a few seconds.

The Aussie songwriter is back with her sophomore release ON A CLEAR NIGHT- and it packs a punch, both in lyrical and vocal authenticity and melodies you'll be hard-pressed to purge.

Recorded virtually live to tape with producer Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Ron Sexsmith, Suzanne Vega, Los Lobos) and featuring a guest turn by Neil Finn, Missy's crystalline, confessional voice draws the curtains on her diary- several breakup songs punctuate the record.

Check the wonderful strum and Missy being put through the wringer on STEER.

and a very, very catchy song, whose lyrics, I think, we all have related to at one time or another- PEACHY.
