Multi ARIA award winning artist, Kate Ceberano, has been in the business for over 35 years - writing and performing both jazz and pop music - with seven Platinum and seven Gold albums to her name. Kate first came to prominence in the mid-80’s as a 15-year-old sensation fronting pop funk band, I’m Talking. Five consecutive hit singles and a Platinum debut album, “Bear Witness”, led to a swag of awards for both the band and Kate. After launching her solo career, she took out Best Female Artist at the '88 and '89 ARIA awards with her triple Platinum album “Brave”, nominated as ARIA Album of the Year. In 1992, Kate hit the stage to perform the role of Mary in “Jesus Christ Superstar”. The show’s star-studded cast toured nationally, performed over 80 arena shows and the album was the biggest hit of the year earning four times platinum status. Ceberano has barely drawn breath since, racking up 27 albums over 35 years to be the most prolific Australian female recording artist of this era. In 2014, Ceberano became the first woman to be inducted into the Australian Songwriters' Association (ASA) Hall of Fame. 2016 saw Kate on the Queen's Birthday Honours List, becoming a member of the Order of Australia for significant service to the performing arts and charitable organisations. 2020 will see further exciting and unexpected projects, confirming that Kate Ceberano is a most diverse and creative tour-de-force. Her work, her craft and her vision are now imbued in our collective DNA. Kate Ceberano is a bona fide national treasure, possessing one of the great voices of her generation. Long may she run.
