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.
