Little Wise & Loren Kate


This Melbourne-based folk and alt-country songstress is small in stature, but can tell a towering story with the wisdom of an old soul. Her voice is smooth, feminine and perfectly matched to her songs.

Little Wise is proud to present her new single ‘Under Water’. The track is off her forthcoming album ‘Silver Birch’, to be released in November 2016.

In conjunction with the release, Little Wise will present a stunning music video featuring a storm inside a house by award-winning indie filmmaker Caitlin Bryan.

Little Wise has worked with production team MEJU; Megan Bernard and Aria-nominated producer Kalju Tonuma (Crowded House, Hunters and Collectors), to present her most mature and compelling work to date.

The project is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia via MATCH funding, following Little Wise’s successful Pozible crowd funding campaign in March 2016.

To celebrate the release, Little Wise is bringing her raw and uplifting brand of storytelling out on a multi-city solo tour.



Quickly gaining a reputation as an utterly captivating performer and brilliant storyteller, Loren’s connection to her audience has left many with both joy and tears.

Loren Kate has performed at many venues and festivals around the country including WOMADelaide, Nannup and Alice Desert Festival to name a few. She has performed alongside artists including Vika and Linda Bull, Tinpan Orange, Harry James Angus, Archie Roach, Mama Kin, Eric Bogle and international songwriters Kristina Olsen, Enda Kenny and Steve Poltz.

After a successful crowd funding campaign where over id=”mce_marker”6,000 was raised in 3 months from more than 220 fans, Loren recorded her third album ‘Moving On’ with producer, Paul McKercher (Augie March, Pete Murray, You am I, Sarah Blasko) in September 2013 and toured the country, delighting audiences with her heart-warming and intimate storytelling-style.

The success of ‘Moving On’ includes extensive airplay on ABC Radio National’s ‘Inside Sleeve’, Triple J’s ‘Roots n’ All’ and a number one chart placement on AMRAP’s AirIT charts for 4 weeks running!

Most recently Loren won the 2014 Telstra Road to Discovery program, Australia’s most authentic grassroots talent development program for singer/songwriters. The win enabled Loren to record her new EP, ‘Til Night Meets The Sun’, produced by Glen Hannah.
