SINGER-SONGWRITER Kate Miller-Heidke’s “Nightflight” tour brings her to the University of Canberra tonight to perform tracks from her new album.
“Nightflight” is made up of 11 songs in which Miller-Heidke muses on homesickness, mortality, love and surrender.
Describing her 2008 album “Curiouser” as “a playful, dysfunctional adolescent,” she sees her new album as “more like a damaged, melancholy person in her late 20s.” With “Nightflight,” she adds, “we wanted something darker and more organic, more beautiful and more expansive.”
Originally trained as a classical singer, but now better known as a leading alt pop performer, Miller-Heidke has recently performed in John Adams’s “The Death of Klinghoffer” for the English National Opera. She is just back from her “Nightflight” tour of the United States and Canada.
Kate Miller-Heidke, “Nightflight” at Zierholz at UC Canberra, bookings to www.uclive.com.au or 1300 438 849.
