Barefoot Missy charms Perth

A barefooted Missy Higgins played to a full house at the Perth Concert Hall last night, showing off a more sophisticated play list drawn largely from her new hit album Steer.

Higgins, who commented through the performance that she liked the intimate setting because it felt like she was playing to friends in her living room, was impressive as she sailed through her opening solo of Secret before welcoming the rest of her five piece band, including a cellist, on stage for the haunting Katie.

She moved freely between piano and guitar throughout the nearly two-hour performance, stopping at times to chat to the crowd and explaining how many of her new offerings had been penned in the state’s North-West, where the night sky and beautiful landscape was inspiring.

Dressed in a purple long-sleeved spotted tunic and black footless tights, she was sincere and playful, even performing a cartwheel during a break between songs.

Highlights included an extended version of Warm Whispers which was haunting and engaging, a trumpet solo that no one, including Higgins, wanted to end and plenty of acoustic action which showcased Higgins' stunning talents as a singer, pianist and guitarist.

The set finished with crowd-pleasing hits Scar and Steer, which saw Higgins and the band rewarded with a standing ovation.
