Hindle shows her other side
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.
