Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose style crosses contemporary pop, folk and opera. She has released four studio albums in Australia, including the top 5 albums O Vertigo!, Nightflight, and Curiouser, which spawned the multi-platinum hits ‘The Last Day On Earth’ and ‘Caught In The Crowd’. Her songs are stamped with witty humour and poignant insight – always touching.

Beyond her recorded music career, Kate Miller-Heidke has recently made forays into the world of music theatre, composing an opera ‘The Rabbits’ in 2015. She has recently finished work with her collaborator Keir Nuttall on composing the music and lyrics for ‘Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical’, premiering at the Sydney Theatre Company in November 2017.

In 2016-17 Kate performed a suite of her songs with symphony orchestras around the country to huge acclaim, winning the Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert, and seeing her performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra released as a new album, the ARIA-nominated Live At The Sydney Opera House.

Now Kate is hitting the road to perform a brand new set of arrangements that combine her unique vocals and alternative pop sounds – and the guitar shredding of Keir Nuttall – with a string quartet. There will be adaptations of well-loved orchestral pieces, as well as some surprises from her back catalogue. Audiences can also expect to get a sneak peak of some new material, as Kate road-tests songs for her next album.
