Kate’s musical journey goes the full circle

Ashwini SaseedaranSouth Western Times

Country singer and Collie local Kate Hindle’s passion for music is translated through her determined ability to juggle performance and business.

Just last week, Hindle released a new album titled Ready For The Ride while simultaneously performing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in New South Wales.

In the same determined fashion of living out her dreams, Hindle is among the line-up at this month’s Boyup Brook Country Music Festival which coincides with the opening of her own music school in Collie.

“I’m definitely living the dream,” Hindle said.

“From Monday to Thursday I’ll be doing what I love by teaching and on the weekends I’m doing what I love by travelling.”

A festival performer for the past decade, Hindle said Boyup Brook was where it all began.

“I started out in awards and I absolutely loved it,” she said.

“I love country music because I can relate to it.

“It’s all about the journey of life, whether good or bad.

“I’m so excited for another year of the Boyup Brook festival and to catch up with everyone who has been supportive and encouraging of my journey.”

Hindle’s career in the music industry has grown to impressive heights – she graduated from the WA Academy of Performing Arts, bagged a finalist position in the prestigious Toyota Star Maker competition in 2016 and had the opportunity to perform alongside country music royal Lee Kernaghan.

With a new album offering traditional, pop and rock country tunes now in her belt, Hindle said audiences at the Boyup Brook festival could expect a good variety of classics, original song covers and new music.

“My journey has evolved and with it, my music,” Hindle said.

“As I’m growing and going through life, I’m drawing inspiration from people and things around me as well as my experiences.”

The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival runs from February 15 to 18 and tickets can be purchased from www.countrymusicwa.com.au.
