If you like Missy Higgins...

Missy Higgins is without a doubt one of triple j Unearthed's biggest success stories.

She's enjoyed a career that has spanned some fifteen years as one of the country's most decorated songwriters, and earned her three ARIA #1 albums and the #2 placing in the 2004 Hottest 100 for 'Scar'. 

We Unearthed Missy in 2001, when her sister submitted a cassette tape of her song 'All For Believing' for our consideration. Safe to say, it's been a wild ride since. 

This Thursday night, Double J are giving Missy Higgins the J Files treatment at 8PM (find out about that over here). In celebration, we've decided to look back on her legacy as a treasured Australian songwriter, and identify five artists you might like if you like Missy Higgins. 

Nat Tencic guides you thought the annuls of honest lyricism and killer storytelling from some of the best pop songwriters on triple j Unearthed at the moment. There's a full tracklist below.  If you're into Missy Higgins, what are you waiting for?
