Have you heard this chart-topping Australian singer songwriter named Kate Miller-Heidke?
Here is The Devil Wears a Suit with lyrics. I love this video. It’s like watching a silent old school horror flick! Awesome! The zombies are a nice touch.
Kate Miller-Heidke released Nightflight, her first solo album in two years, last month. Kate will be touring with Ben Folds Five in the fall.
Here is her titled track Nightflight but it includes how it was made. I love videos that show some behind the scenes footage.

Here is the Nightflight music video with lyrics:
Here is Sarah with lyrics. I love it when videos have the lyrics included. That way I have a deeper understanding of the song, most the time without the lyrics I’m not sure I fully listen.
She has so many more amazing YouTube videos uploaded to her channel! You really need to check them all out. They are angelic and melodic, 41 in all!

More on Kate Miller-Heidke:
On the heels of her successful 2010/2011 US and European tours opening for Ben Folds, and critically acclaimed performances at SXSW, Coachella and Lilith Fair to support the release of her US debut CD, Curiouser, chart-topping Australian singer songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke released Nightflight, her first solo album in two years, in the US on June 19th.
Written between the frenetic jolt of London and the sleepy backwaters of Toowoomba (which was hit by deadly floods in 2011), Nightflight showcases songs about real people’s lives: family members who have died, teenagers who went missing in the ’90s, friends looking for love in the wrong places and Kate’s own longing for home. In previous albums, Kate has immersed herself in high cabaret drama, polished electro-pop and heart-arresting ballads. With Nightflight, her mission was simple: to focus on the craft of pure human storytelling with clear-eyed clarity.
The record was produced by her collaborator/husband Keir Nuttall with Lindsay Gravina (Rowland S. Howard, Mick Harvey, The Living End, Magic Dirt) in his Birdland studio in Prahran, Melbourne and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Florence And The Machine, Kaiser Chiefs). Recorded over two months in Melbourne, Nighflight is made up of eleven songs in which we see Kate meditate on homesickness, mortality, love and surrender, in an album that is both sonically lush and emotionally stark, deeply personal and yet utterly panoramic.
Last Fall, Kate Miller-Heidke grabbed the attention of TV viewers and radio listeners in the New York area when her irresistibly catchy track, “Are You Ready?” (from the record Liberty Bell, created by her electronic side project), was used regularly for the NY Lottery campaigns.
So what do you think? Is it someone you would go see in concert?
