Kate Miller-Heidke? A beard? It sounds utterly implausible that the effortlessly pretty Aussie siren could sprout some whiskers on her chin. But we’re not talking whiskers. And we’re not talking chin.
We’re talking “downstairs” and we’re talking figuratively, all in the name of charity.
‘I’m Growing A Beard Downstairs For Christmas’ is a festive season collaboration between Kate and Adelaide outfit The Beards. A song about “manscaping and clamscaping”, proceeds from the sale of the song will go directly to Bowel Cancer Australia.
“The Beards opened for me on tour a couple of years ago, and some of their fans heckled me for not having a beard,” Kate reveals. “This song is my revenge on them. Also, it taps into my sick love of Christmas songs. It’s one of the poppiest, most upbeat songs I’ve ever written and it’s my dream that it gets played at Westfield during extended Christmas shopping hours. Also, it’s for charity.”
