Fans have embraced Kate Miller-Heidke’s national tour which kicks off in Byron Bay on Thursday Feb 11th– see sold out shows listed below.
Sunshine Coast’s newest and brightest star AYLA will be opening all shows for the tour (except Adelaide). Over the last two years, this young singer-songwriter has been steadily gaining attention on the Australian music scene for her mature and compelling writing style. Her debut single “Wish I Was” was released in early 2014, which immediately gained attention with Australian radio. The end of 2014 saw “Wish I Was” come in at #15 on triple j’s most played list as well as gaining traction with European radio, resulting in a distribution deal with EGO Records in Italy (Emma Louise, The Jezabels).
Continuing to grow from strength to strength, AYLA released her debut EP in late 2015, with all three singles receiving high rotation on triple j. Straight off the back of a much loved ‘Like A Version’ of Hunters & Collectors’ ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDy2LcJMO0M and impressive performances at 2015’s Woodford Folk Festival, AYLA is set to make 2016 her biggest year yet.
Regarding the opportunity to open shows for Kate, Ayla said,
“I’ve always admired Kate Miller-Heidke for her clever lyrics, incredible range and unique spin on pop music. She is one of Australia’s best female artists and I’m absolutely honoured to be supporting her on this tour.”
Kate is currently performing at the Sydney Festival in The Rabbits, the Helpmann- Award winning opera which she composed and stars in. Once the season has concluded, she’ll be back on the road for her national tour. Fans can expect to hear some new brand new songs, a new cover or two, a piece from The Rabbits, as well as earlier material from across her varied career and of course songs from her most recent acclaimed album O Vertigo!
And even though the Christmas season is over you can still purchase the single she released in December with The Beards, with all proceeds going to Bowel Cancer Australia.
