Katie Noonan has the kind of voice grown men weep for, the kind of voice that seems to come directly from her heart rather than her lungs.

She has topped both the pop and jazz charts, blown away opera fanatics, performed alongside countless luminaries of myriad fields, and backs it all up by being an incredible songwriter, producer and keyboardist in her own right.

As co-lead singer of critically acclaimed Brisbane band george, Katie first found public favour when their debut, double platinum album Polyserena made its grand arrival at the very top of the ARIA charts (followed nicely by the gold-selling second top ten album, Unity).

Not content to develop a little box to reside in, Katie effortlessly continued the trend with her accomplished jazz trio Elixir, debuting at number 24 in the ARIA charts and staying in the top 30 for five weeks in 2003. When was the last time you heard a jazz record in the top 30?

Katie has performed to sell out crowds in front of the Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony, West Australian Symphony and Queensland Orchestras. She has gracefully accompanied Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore, Australian jazz alumni Paul Grabowsky, and even her renowned soprano mother, Maggie Noonan, with their opera/jazz project, Two of a Kind.

Reviewer Murray Black put it succinctly during a reflection on Katie’s 2004 guest appearance at the Lord Of The Rings Symphony: “The undoubted highlight of the evening was guest vocalist Katie Noonan. Here is a rare talent with a voice of extraordinary beauty and versatility. In most of her solos, she sounded like a classical soprano as she soared over the orchestra with a spine-tingling, vibrato-less angelic purity. Then, in Gollum’s Song and the Oscar-winning Into the West, she revealed her pop diva credentials with her strong, clear voice projecting effortlessly out in the audience.”

Katie’s release, a jazz gem with Paul Grabowsky called Before Time Could Change Us leapt straight into the top of the jazz charts and scored Katie her second ARIA award. Her Two of a Kind project with mother Maggie was also one of the highest selling classical releases of 2004.

Despite a queue of musicians dying to work with her winding almost as far back as her own list of accomplishments, Katie is currently preparing yet another solo album for release in 2016. If you’re a fan of singing rather than just singing, you’d best become acquainted with the awe-inspiring Katie Noonan. It sure beats the shower renditions.
