The Up Late program for ‘Picasso & his collection’ concludes with a rare acoustic performance by Kate Miller-Heidke, presenting never-before seen material from her forthcoming new album in October 2008 and subsequent national tour with a full band.
Miller-Heidke is one of the most talked about performers in Australian music today. Her unique vocal ability has captured the imagination audiences nationwide and established her as one of Australia’s most exciting musical talents.
Taking a break from her touring schedule in May 2008, Miller-Heidke has been recording a new album, her second full-length album, in Los Angeles.
The yet to be titled album follows the gold-selling debut Little Eve (Sony/BMG, 2007), which featured the hit singles ‘Words’, ‘Make it last’ and the stunning ‘Space they cannot touch’ , which entered the ARIA charts at number 11 in June 2007 and earned the artist four ARIA Award nominations. Little Eve topped numerous ‘Best Release’s of 2007’ lists Australia-wide and 2008 has already seen Miller-Heidke perform at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, Brisbane’s Big Gay Day and as a supporting performer for Cyndi Lauper in 2008.
The Kate Miller-Heidke live experience is compelling – her theatrical stage presence, and fresh, innovative and edgy pop captivates audiences.
‘Miller-Heidke’s punishing vocal prowess is the impetus of the gutsiest show in Australian music at the moment. There is nothing contrived here; just a cathartic release of punk opera – stunning, fine and porcelain-fragile meets pummeling, bruising rock & roll.’ (Adelaide Fringe Festival review, February 2008)
Don’t miss experiencing some of Kate’s new musical creations come to life with her long term collaborator, Keir Nuttall on guitar, alongside audience favourites from her previous albums and her much loved comedic twist, to conclude the Up Late program for ‘Picasso & his collection’.
