‘Carry You’ Music From The Home Front performance with Tim Minchin

For those of you who missed my performance of ‘Carry You’ with Tim Minchin tonight on Channel 9, here ‘tis! This was weird and lovely. I didn’t have much to make my living room look fancy so those are little father Christmas tree lights behind me, and I decided to wear my wedding dress for the occasion. Not sure why! I’ve just been looking for an opportunity to wear it again. Everything’s a bit topsy-turvy at the moment, so why not. Thank you to Tim for this beautiful song, I love singing it, and please catch his series ‘Upright’ on Foxtel if you can, it is truly brilliant. Thanks for having us be involved everyone at Channel 9 and everyone else involved in Music From The Home Front, for Anzac Day.

Love to you all, hang in there

Missy Higgins and Paul Kelly to play Sandstone Point Hotel

Hey everyone, announcement! New show added! I’m so looking forward to getting up to beautiful warm Bribie Island for this one-off show, I love being up in Queensland, it’s a real contrast to Melbourne and always feels like a kind of exotic getaway. And this gig has such a great line-up of acts, Alex the Astronaut, Andy Golledge and of course the legendary Paul Kelly whom I always love watching live, so I think it’s gonna be a special one!

I hadn’t seen Upright before Tim asked me if I wanted to record a song for it, but I was a big fan of Tim’s work so I knew it would be good. When he played me ‘Carry You’ on the piano I instantly felt how beautiful and universal it was and how I might make it my own.

Sarah Belkner (who plays keyboard for both of us) did an incredible job of wrapping it in some classy, understated production, and I love how it turned out in the studio with her.

After I watched the series (which blew me away, it was so good) I finally understood how multi-dimensional the song is and it made me love it even more. When I sang it in the studio, I felt the ache of regret and the longing for connection through the lyrics, which is something any of us can relate to I think.

I’m so happy to be a part of this project, it’s Aussie TV at its absolute best.
