Katie Noonan’s technical mastery and pure voice makes her one of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists. A mother, singer, producer, songwriter, pianist and business woman, this 4 x ARIA Award winning and 7 x platinum selling songstress first received widespread praise as the angel-voiced songstress of indie pop band George and has since taken audiences on sublime excursions through Jazz, Pop and Classical music.
In 2013 The Herald Sun ran a poll asking Australia’s most famous vocalists to nominate the Greatest Australian Singers of all time. Katie was voted in the top 20 sharing this honour with the likes of Michael Hutchence, Bon Scott, Neil Finn, The Bee Gees and Gurrumul.
Her various releases include recently collaborating with the world famous Brodsky Quartet for the acclaimed album ‘With Love and Fury’, her jazz folk trio’s self titled album ‘Elixir’ and the 2012 ARIA winning “First Seed Ripening’, the No. 1 selling classical album ‘Two of a Kind’ with her mother Maggie,her gold-selling top ten solo album ‘Skin’ and the acclaimed ‘Songs of the Southern Skies.’ She has also worked with the country’s top orchestra’s including her fruitful collaborations with Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra and recently with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Katie is constantly blurring genre boundaries and exploring interdisciplinary collaborations and is truly an artist that thrives on new creative relationships and exchanges. Collaborations include working with Rafael Bonachela and the Sydney Dance Company, performing with both the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras, performing with Joe Lovano, Vince Jones, Zac Hurren, Stephen Magnusson and other world class jazz musicians, creating and per forming Love-Song-Circus with Contemporary circus group Circa, working with young singer/songwriters such as Thelma Plum, Jack Carty and Martha Marlow, devising and touring an all female show ‘Songs That Made Me’ with Abby Dobson and Angie Hart and exploring electronic music with collaborations with Flight Facilities and Grammy nominated US producer Andy Caldwell.
