Hin­dle shows her other side

South Western Times - - Entertainment - Emily Ace

COLLIE singer-song­writer Kate Hin­dle shared her per­sonal jour­ney from de­spair to strength with her lat­est sin­gle and de­but mu­sic video Lone­li­ness, re­leased on Fri­day.

The record was also Hin­dle’s first time col­lab­o­rat­ing with six-time golden gui­tar win­ner Felic­ity Urquhart.

Speak­ing to the tal­ented coun­try artist on the day of the sin­gle’s re­lease, Hin­dle could hardly con­tain her ex­cite­ment.

“It’s just been a long process,” she told the South West­ern Times.

“The ac­tual al­bum came out in Jan­u­ary and I have re­leased this sin­gle along­side my de­but mu­sic video, so I just re­ally wanted to have a song I am su­per proud of and I am,” she said.

“Get­ting this song out is a re­ally big step in my ca­reer.”

Hin­dle ad­mit­ted she ap­proached the co-writ­ing process with an air of naivety, but could not speak more highly of her writ­ing part­ner in Urquhart.

“I write so much from the heart and I thought ‘she might not un­der­stand what this song is meant to be about’,” Hin­dle ex­plained.

“But she just grasped ev­ery sin­gle emo­tion of this song and made it so much more than what it be­gan as.”

Speak­ing about the song it­self, Hin­dle de­scribed it as a “bit­ter­sweet and con­fus­ing jour­ney of love and sad­ness, but also the re­al­i­sa­tion that lone­li­ness is just lone­li­ness”.

“It’s about ris­ing above ev­ery­thing and know­ing that no mat­ter what hap­pens in life, things al­ways hap­pen for a rea­son and you be­come stronger from your past,” she said.

With the new sin­gle and ac­com­pa­ny­ing film clip, Kate said she wanted to show a dif­fer­ent side of her­self.

“I want them to see that I am a singer-song­writer and this is what I set out to do,” she said.

“The song just shows peo­ple that there are bet­ter things wait­ing for them when they’re go­ing through tough times, and it all hap­pens be­cause it needs to.”

The tal­ented songstress started learn­ing to play the pi­ano at just seven years old, be­gan per­form­ing at 11 and wrote her first song at 12.

The now 21-year-old said even af­ter a decade of per­form­ing, it was still ex­cit­ing each and ev­ery­time she took to the stage.

“It just brings me so much hap­pi­ness,” she said.

“I might sing some sad songs, I might sing some happy songs, but it al­ways has that same emo­tion of ‘I hope I make peo­ple smile or I hope peo­ple can re­late to this’ and just wish­ing I have an im­pact on some­body’s life.”

The mu­si­cian will tour Vic­to­ria in Sep­tem­ber be­fore re­turn­ing to her home State for a slate of per­for­mances, with a Bun­bury show “def­i­nitely on the cards”.

Lone­li­ness is avail­able from dig­i­tal re­tail­ers and the video is avail­able now on YouTube.
