Katie Noonan’s Songs That Made Me series features female artists singing tracks which have inspired or in some way defined them
Acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Katie Noonan has assembled her musical sisters again for the return of the glorious Songs That Made Me series.
After a glowing tour in 2013, Noonan promises this year’s tour and album are more extensive.
“It is truly something special,’’ she says.
“The album combines the talents of this country’s most breathtaking female artists.
“The inspired tracklist showcases 14 female artists including much-lauded talents such as Renee Geyer, Deborah Conway, Mia Dyson, Angie Hart, and new stars Sam Buckingham, Stonefield, Melody Pool, Sahara Beck and more.”
Noonan says each artist chose a track with special significance, continuing with the Songs That Made Me theme of sharing stories of influences, artistic journeys and the landmark songs that have sound-tracked their lives.
“All the profits from the album go directly to the Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign,” she says.
“It’s not every day that you get to work with such incredibly gifted artists and contribute something meaningful at the same time.”
The national tour – which visits Currumbin’s Soundlounge this weekend – features Noonan, Angie Hart, Melody Pool and Sam Buckingham.
“We will be singing the songs we recorded on the album (as well as) other favourite songs that are meaningful to us,” says Noonan.
“We are all really good friends and we have a beautiful time together,” she says.
“It’s such a beautiful celebration of the power of sisterhood, women getting together and sharing stories.’’ Songs That Made Me, Soundlounge, Sunday.
