2023 sees Kate rack up 40 years and 30 albums into one of the most enduring and inspirational careers in Australian music.
11 platinum and 8 gold albums, 15 Top 40 singles, 3 Countdown awards, 4 ARIA awards from 19 nominations, but it’s over 8000 performances that her unassailable distinction was forged.
I’m Talking’s platinum debut, “Bear Witness”, brought Kate’s jaw-dropping voice to national attention via their 5 top 20 singles. It led to stages as historic as Live Aid and Australian Made alongside INXS, Jimmy Barnes and Divinyls. Today it’s enshrined among Rolling Stone’s Top 200 Australian Albums of all time.
There’s her record-breaking run with John Farnham in Jesus Christ Superstar, her hit TV show of the mid ‘90s ‘Kate & Friends’, her 2014 induction into the Australian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, her triple Platinum smash debut solo album pop album Brave, her ARIA winning Platinum blues album ‘Stringer’, Kate was a force of nature from day one.
It’s a story that refreshes yet again with My Life Is A Symphony, a breathtaking celebration of her songwriting, featuring her most iconic songs, Brave and Pash, and favourites reimagined amid the grandeur of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Quite simply the voice of a generation.
