|About Chris Philpotts...|
I have lived in Nottingham for three years now, and have just finished a degree course at Nottingham Trent. I fell in love with the city over the three years with the nightlife, people and even the mighty Forest all playing major roles in my life.
A packed house at the Rescue Rooms turned out to witness the special talent that is Missy Higgins.
The Australian singer / songwriter drew a large crowd, with people travelling up from distances as far as Kent to see Missy in the penultimate night of her tour of the UK.
The set started with Missy's breakthrough hit 'All for Believing' and set the tone for the rest of the night. Each song started with Missy telling us what her inspiration was for that particular piece, giving the crowd an insight into what made the music so special.
The set was a mixture of musical styles and moods as Missy switched from the piano and the guitar showing her versatility as a musician. Songs such as 'This is how it goes' and 'Scar' showed the more upbeat and catchy style of Higgins while 'The special two' showed the more sensitive side of Missy's music.
Missy showed that she is a special talent who is sure to make it big in Europe. Her talent and personality shone through... she even managed to mention local legend Robin Hood.
The next stop for Missy is the USA, where she starts touring in June, supporting Amos Lee. A treat for any music fan.
A special mention has to go to Missy's supporting act Nerina Pallot, who was well worth the entrance fee on her own. Her collection of songs was a perfect start to the evening, in which, like Missy, she found a connection with the crowd.
