Saije + Loren Kate
Saije is an award-winning, indie folk duo whose soulful harmonies, dynamic guitar-lines and percussive breakdowns breathe life into heartfelt stories. Their songwriting is crafted from the depths; stirring melodies bound together with graceful lyricism, and through multitasking techniques, the pair create a full-bodied sound enriched by flavours from their travels around the globe.
After being awarded Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Young Artist of the Year 2019-2021’ at the National Folk Festival, Saije has toured extensively in Australia, throughout Canada in 2020 and most recently a 43-date Europe and UK tour through 9 countries in 2023, playing a plethora of sold-out performances and festival appearances, including at Woodford Folk Festival (AUS), Blue Mountains Music Festival (AUS), Doolin Folk Festival (IRE), Tribal Gathering (CZ), Magpies Nest (UK) and an Official Showcase at Folk Alliance International (US). They continue to uplift both national and international audiences through their unifying performances and a warmth that fills small halls and overflows from large festival stages.
