Music Meets Earth: Missy Higgins Combines Her Talent for Music with Her Love for the Environment

“Steer”, the third song on her latest album, On a Clear Night, not only showcases Missy’s musical prowess, it also reflects her respect for the environment. It was inspired by her visit to Broome, Australia while she was writing the album. The song definitely inspires listeners to take control of their lives and “step into the clear.”

Her environmental efforts span all the way back to her childhood in Australia. “As a kid, I was a Greenpeace follower and I was always conscious of saving water and electricity, so much so that I kind of drove my parents mad sometimes,” she says. Now, as an adult she has become one of the most environmentally friendly musicians in the music business – ranking number 9 on Billboard magazine’s ‘Green 10’ in 2008.
