TAYLOR MADE LINE UP 2024
ALEX THE ASTRONAUT
An unforgettably original lyricist, the music of Australian singer/songwriter Alex the Astronaut cycles through a series of radiantly detailed slices of life. Alex documents moments of both the seemingly mundane-from a haircut, a therapy session, a trip to the beach and to the supermarket-to the utterly life-changing-experiences as a caregiver along with the PTSD that followed and their diagnosis with autism.
Music has always been a source of empowerment for Charley. Growingup in afamily of musicians, she gravitated towards performing and song writing as an outletof self-expression, even starting a band with her cousins while in high school.Charley’s fascination with song writing continued solo, evolving into a therapeutic,cathartic outlet, as she grew up and took on new experiences.
Clare Bowditch is a musician, broadcaster, sometimes actor, speaker, entrepreneur, and author. Somewhat of a slashie you might say. She has won the coveted ARIA Award for Best Female for her music, the Rolling Stone Woman of the Year Award for her contribution to Australian culture, and has been nominated for a Logie Award for her role as Rosanna on popular television show Offspring.
CLEMENTINE FORD is a writer, broadcaster and feminist community builder living in Naarm/Melbourne. She is the bestselling author of the feminist manifestos Fight Like A Girl and Boys Will Be Boys, which have also been published to great acclaim in the UK and the US. In 2017, she won the Matt Richell Award for Best New Writer of the Year at the ABIAs. Her most recent book is How We Love: Notes on a life.
Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of contemporary pop, folk, musical theatre and opera. She has released five top 10 studio albums including O Vertigo!, Nightflight, and Curiouser, which reached double platinum sales and featured the multi-platinum hits ‘The Last Day On Earth’ and ‘Caught In The Crowd’.
