Bio

Growing up aside the tropics of Darwin and immersing herself in Australia’s cultural and spiritual centre meant that for Katie Milae there was no shortage of inspiration and music was unavoidable.

Her free adventurous spirit has led her on a life full of creativity and adventure. From hand raising and wrangling crocodiles as a keeper in Darwin, sharing the amazing transformative beauty of the Katherine Gorge on boat tours, spending months on end hand harvesting pearls off the Kimberley Coast and adopting a nomadic lifestyle to travel the world, she has been inspired by lessons she has learnt and touched by the souls she has met. It is these experiences and her passion of adventure that are weaved throughout her music.

Milae has a way with words that gets into your bones and finds its way into your soul. People are in disbelief of Katie Milae’s self-taught talent as her voice is often compared to the raspy soulful tones of Amy Winehouse and deep earthy sounds of Adele. Katie’s unique and ethereal voice is a testimony to her success as an Indie Folk and Soulful singer songwriter. Her music is forever evolving as she continually pushes the boundaries of her many talents.

Milae has performed across numerous venues and festivals in South Australia and has just completed a successful tour of the East Coast of Australia. Her first single ‘Melancholy’ has recently been released and soon to be available across all streaming platforms in January, which delves into the complexities of relationships and the journey of self-reflection and acceptance.

The confidence that you exude in this tune makes it feel like you're playing with us and enjoying every moment of it. There is so much greatness in this tune; I could listen to it on repeat for days and weeks. It's marvellous.
