‘Down in the atmospheric cavern of Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Australian singer Kate Miller-Heidke went for the celestial look, with a voice which made it easy to imagine the cathedrals she has filled on the other side of the world.’ Brighton Argus

Tuesday 9th September MANCHESTER, DEAF INSTITUTE

‘Yours Was The Body’ introduces to a UK audience the hugely talented Kate Miller-Heidke – with a free download – an artist who has smashed all records to-date in her home country Australia for the fastest and most successful crowd-funded album. When Kate parted company with her label she took the ever-growing independent route resulting in an overwhelming and very gratifying response from her army of loyal fans. ‘O Vertigo’ was funded entirely by the direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic with Kate achieving her goal in only 3 days and the campaign went on to reach over 215% of its original target. Off the back of this success ‘O Vertigo’ will be soon be scheduled for release in the UK by Cooking Vinyl.
Kate is also well known in the world of Opera. This summer she will be performing “The Death of Klinghoffer” for the New York Metropolitan Opera before her return visit to the UK. New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones (New York Times, Village Voice, Spin) described her songs as “a big clutch of Pantone swatches”. American writer Neil Gaiman compared her voice to “being fucked by butterflies”.
When people discuss Kate Miller-Heidke, the metaphors have to be big, in order to match that monumental voice.
