Kate Miller-Heidke introducing Kate Miller-Heidke

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.

Kesha wrote letters to fans 'revealing Dr Luke's abuse' before filing lawsuit MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Oct 19 2014 2:39PM

Several months before going public with claims she'd been sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke, Kesha wrote a series of letters to fans revealing her "torturous" abuse.

According to Buzzfeed, the 27-year-old replied to fans on pages of a children's colouring book, while being treated in rehab for her eating disorder in January.

Specifically referring to Dr. Luke as her abuser, Kesha wrote to one fan: "Dr. Luke has tortured me and my family. He did do what people know about and so much more terrible s---."

In a second letter, the singer pinpoints the 41-year-old producer once again, saying: "These music business a------ (well, Dr. Luke) had almost successfully crushed my magic."

A third letter sees Kesha referring to her eating disorder, claiming that Dr. Luke was the cause of her ongoing battle.

"Someone I work with has literally driven me into this disease, tortured me and f----- with me and my family," she wrote.

Only last week, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke, claiming he had "sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally" abused her over a ten-year period.

Days later, it was revealed that Kesha's mum had allegedly threatened via email to go public with the rape allegations, if Luke did not revoke her daughter's contract.

According to TMZ, the email stated: "We, me and Kesha and her friends… like Lady Gaga, are going to make all of this really PUBLIC, in the next few days. Luke date raped Kesha when she was 18…

"Luke also gave Kesha pills. She ended up naked in his hotel room 2 days later. No longer a virgin? Do we all want this to come out? Either Luke releases Kesha from all legal contracts, and gives back all my publishing, or we, Kesha and I, tell the truth."

After Kesha's legal team filed their lawsuit, Dr Luke filed his own against the singer… claiming she was "lying to get out of her legally binding contract".

Dr. Luke, is responsible for all of Kesha's music and gave the singer her first record deal in 2005.
