Here comes the voice
Kate Miller-Heidke has spent years and years at the Queensland Conservatorium studying classical voice shes devoted her young life to the pursuit of operatic excellence. But in July 2004, when she was 22, she branched out and released a seven-track EP Telegram, which was a personal musical dalliance away from opera.
Last year when she was making her professional solo debut with Opera Queensland (in the role of Flora in Turn Of The Screw) she also won the Helpmann Award for Best Performance In An Australian Contemporary Concert for her role in the cabaret Women In Voice.
Then Telegram started making waves on air with Triple J giving it rotation. The ballad Space They Cannot Touch became the stations most requested song Kate Miller-Heidke, singer and songwriter, had arrived. Her next EP Circular Breathing is out next month.
This opera singer/pop star will expose her three-octave range and her emotional depths to us all when she performs at the Bangalow Catholic Hall next Thursday, March 23. Doors open at 7.30pm for munchies. The gig starts at 8pm. Tickets are $18/15 at the door.
Oh, and she knocked them dead at Woodford Folk Festival this year.
