This honor was complimented in 2004 when she was named Broadway/Australia’s Female Cabaret Artist of the Year.
During her time in New York, Kaye performed in the city’s three premier cabaret venues. She was invited to perform her show, Man-eater, at New York’s celebrated cabaret venue, Don’t Tell Mama. She stopped the room at Jim Caruso’s famed King Kong Room and was a guest artist alongside Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked), and songwriter John Buccino at Mama Roses.
Her success in New York led to an invitation to perform in London as the featured performer at the inaugural 2004 Australian of the Year in the UK Awards (major award won by Clive James) before the High Commissioner, Hon Michael L’Strange, and approximately 250 dignitaries at the black tie gala event at Australia House on The Strand.

On returning to Australia Kaye embarked on tours of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide with her sell out seasons of her solo cabaret shows. Kaye’s work pushes the boundaries of cabaret with its dark, edgy European overtones. She has been described as ‘Australia’s Ute Lemper‘ by leading cabaret critics.
In ‘Man-eater! She Ate Them All’ she was described as ‘chillingly convincing and utterly arresting’. The show was performed at Sydney’s Kabarett Voltaire and the 2004 Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
Following this success came a tour de force, the confronting black comedy ‘Stalker’, a cabaret critiqued as ‘Spine-tingling’, with Kaye a ‘mod-pixie punk with a voice that literally stops you in your tracks’. ‘Stalker’ was the cabaret selected to open the Statement Cabaret Room at Sydney’s State Theatre, The Butterfly Club in Melbourne and the 2005 Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
Her latest show ‘SIREN’ was performed to rave reviews at the Sunday Spectrum Arts Program at The Adelaide Festival Centre. This moving show explores the lure of the ocean and the fate of all seafarers in the hands of the mythical ‘siren’.
