Kate Ceberano's Biography

Kate Ceberano's 17th album So Much Beauty is more than just her latest album, it is also the summation of everything that has made this Australian singer exceptional in the past and makes her exceptional still.
This is where she's come to, thanks in part to where she's been. So Much Beauty might even be the best album Kate has ever made, a remarkable consideration in a career that's seen so much success and variety.
From Kate's point of view she wanted to build on what she had achieved with 2007's platinum selling tribute to 80s music Nine Lime Avenue.
That album was recorded quickly with producer Richard Pleasance over three busy weeks, in between all Kate's other professional commitments and motherhood. By contrast So Much Beauty is deliberately a relaxed in-house "loungeroom" effort, recorded by Kate with her long-term front-of-house mixer, Steve and the band she'd assembled to tour Nine Lime Avenue. Also enlisted to help out on the music direction and supervision for this album was rock legend, James Black.
For material Kate once again looked around for songs from others to work her magic on. "Something I've earned in my many years of singing is the right to be able to interpret music and still make it entirely my own." Listen to what she does to the Neil Diamond staple 'Play Me'.
The new album is built around Kate Ceberano's own song So Much Beauty. "I feel responsible for that part of me that's a songwriter and doesn't get to get out and about much these days. She was the one that was a lynchpin for me for this album. From the outset I wanted everything on the album to have reference to So Much Beauty."
While Roxy Music's Avalon brings Kate back to that 80s decade which means so much to her. For So Much Beauty Kate has reached back to the 70s for Neil Diamond and Simon and Garfunkel, at the same time as bringing her vision forward in time with the inclusion of Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars, David Gray's Babylon, Maroon 5's She Will Be Loved and the albums opener K.T.Tunstall's Suddenly I See
Tunstall is the most contemporary of the strong women of song Kate relates to with her song choices for So Much Beauty. "I made a choice early on in my career. I will walk the line. I will perform pop, but it has to be pop with a message." We also hear Kate's version of Madonna's Live To Tell and the Pretenders' I'll Stand By You.
Kate Ceberano is the true professional oozing class and representing an iconic Australian female vocal sound we have all had the pleasure of experiencing and loving. She is a knockout entertainment choice for your next corporate event.
