Kate Miller-Heidke introducing Kate Miller-Heidke

10:32 AEST Mon Jun 18 2007
Who better to introduce you to this exciting newcomer than Kate herself! Hear from the lovely lady, talking about how she can't stand strong smells, likes bright colours and is fascinated by documentaries about cavemen ...

I'm Kate Miller-Heidke (pronounced Hide-Key). The earliest memory of music I have is sitting in the tunnels in the park every weekend, for hours, listening to my voice bounce around the concrete.

The first record I ever owned was a tape I got for my eighth birthday. It was 'Tears On My Pillow' by Kylie Minogue. I learned every word. At age 15 I bought 'Blue' by Joni Mitchell, and it changed my life.

My first band, when I was 17, had three flautists in it — we broke up for obvious reasons. I then had a brief stint playing keyboards in the Pete Murray band (before he was famous). After that I had another band called Elsewhere which broke up and in 2003 I decided to go solo.

I lived in France for a year after school and at one time spoke great French. I'm very attached to my current band members. I met Keir, my guitarist and creative collaborator, in 2002 when we were pitted against each other in a battle of the bands, judged using a clap-o-meter.

I love songwriting. I love Fleetwood Mac and Queen. One of my favourite places is the Woodford Folk Festival. I can't stand strong smells. I wish I had my own home studio. I'm happiest when I'm with Keir. I am fascinated by documentaries about cavemen. I like bright colours. I love the freedom that I have in my life and my music.

Little Eve is my debut full length album. I was going to call it "Fate Thriller-Spiky" but reconsidered. I've sold lots of both of my independent EPs, mostly straight after gigs. The band and I have played dusty festivals, noisy pubs, gorgeous little theatres and ugly little theatres all over Australia.

Here's my favourite review I've ever received: 'She began to sing and I realised Alice had drunk a little too much of the wrong potion and flown completely off her rocker … she drives from a full soprano level to a wry and sneering punk position … A promising breath of fresh air to anyone willing to loosen a few screws for the experience'. (Drum Media)

I find it hard to describe my music with words. You'll just have to listen. The freedom to record an album the way I hear my music in my head has been an incredible experience. I took advantage of the fact that a studio recording can do things that can't be done live. I completely love the outcome. It shits all over my EPs.

Hallelujah! Nick Jonas is no longer a virgin MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 20 2014 1:02PM

Holy moly, make sure you're sitting down for this one.

Pop star Nick Jonas has officially given away his V-card and he's gone on TV to talk about it. Hallelujah! Watch the 22-year-old admit to being "an adult in all ways" on the Wendy Williams Show above. Is it getting hot in here or is it just us?

Nick has been dating former Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo for more than a year, but his exes include Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and our very own Delta Goodrem.

So why the big deal? Nick is the last of the Jonas Brothers to have his cherry popped. Joe, 25, also ditched the band's vow of chastity and moved over to the dark side (cue scary music here).

"I lost my virginity when I was 20," Joe confessed in a New York Times column last year.

Kevin, 27, is the only one to have kept his promise, waiting to do the deed with wife Danielle on their wedding night in 2009.

"After we did it, I was kind of like, that's it?" Kevin said at a press conference. The couple now have a nine-month-old daughter, Alena Rose.

But our Jonas fave has to be Nick, partly due to his, erm, distracting underwear shoot for Flaunt magazine.

Drugs, absent Zayn and awkward answers: Is this the worst One Direction interview ever? MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 18 2014 12:28PM

We'll file this one under "too awkward for words".

One Direction went on the US Today show as a foursome, claiming bandmate Zayn Malik was too sick to fly to the US for their new album promo tour.

Host Matt Lauer shot straight from the hip and asked if Zayn's absence had anything to do with those persistent drug abuse rumours doing the rounds.

Watch as Liam Payne gives the most unconvincing answer ever while the rest of the boys squirm in their seats. It's a car-crash moment if there ever was one.

Zayn has since told The Sun: "I'm really angry and upset by what was said. I was really ill at the weekend, that's why I couldn't fly to America."

The 21-year-old said he will join the boys to promote their new album Four when he's "fit enough". Yikes! We hope fans aren't left waiting forever...

Back in May, Zayn and bandmate Louis Tomlinson were caught on video allegedly rolling and smoking a joint in a car during their 2014 stadium tour.

Just so you know, the Twitter hashtag "#GetWellSoonZayn" is trending worldwide, if you want to share your wishes (or conspiracy theories).
