Kate Miller-Heidke On World Cafe

Kate Miller-Heidke thought she was heading toward a career in opera, with plans to take up Gilbert and Sullivan roles. But in spite of her classic training and multiple degrees in music, the soprano was won over by the power of pop.

The singer-songwriter's newly reissued 2008 album Curiouser has the right combination of humor and wit, as well as a noticeable sense of confidence. She throws herself fully into pop songwriting, embracing the intimate words she'd once feared revealing. Click the link above to hear Miller-Heidke in a session from World Cafe.
