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.
Her various releases include her folk trio’s self titled album Elixir, the top-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 orchestras including her fruitful collaborations with Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Noonan’s affinity with jazz shone through on the ARIA award-winning album, Before Time Could Change Us. Recorded with revered pianist Paul Grabowsky, it captured the breathtaking beauty and emotion that characterises her work. In Noonan’s 2009 ARIA winning release Blackbird, she collaborated with an historic ensemble of iconic jazz players including Joe Lovano, Ron Carter, Lewis Nash and John Scofield.
With her band The Captains (Cameron Deyell, Stu Hunter and Declan Kelly) Katie’s 2010 release Emperor’s Box saw the songstress sail towards a lush and organic band sound, with her trademark strong and inspired personal stories.
