Without question Kate Miller- Heidke possesses some of the most gloriously elastic vocal chords in contemporary music. In one song, she will sound as hushed and intimate as a. over before sleep, before reverberating with an operatic force so great, it seems possible walls might collapse and time will fold in on itself.
Across the Pacific and Atlantic, stunned audiences have been mesmerized and transformed, one at a time, by the extraordinary talent that is Kate Miller- Heidke. Now, following double-platinum sales for her last album (2008s Curiouser), sets at Coachella, international dates supporting Ben Folds, acclaimed opera performances in Australia and the UK, US raves from the New York Times to the New Yorker, Kate Miller- Heidke returns with Nightflight, her first solo album in three years.
Over 11 songs, Nightflight signals a new-found sophistication in songwriting that sees Kate mediate on homesickness, mortality, love and surrender, in an album that is both sonically lush and emotionally stark, deeply personal and yet utterly panoramic.
