Some reviews for Brisbane and Adelaide

’5/5!’
The Advertiser

‘Rarely can the word ‘magnificent’ be used to accurately describe a Fringe performance without invoking accusations of hyperbole, yet Katie Noonan and Circa’s Love-Song-Circus earned that description. 5/5′
The Adelaide Review

‘Sixteen songs combined to paint an unforgettable picture of courage and resilience in the face of suffering – of people sentenced by an inflexible government to a suffering far beyond anything that their crimes might have warranted.
It was an unforgettable evening, and as we left some of us wondered if in the future there might be an evening like this, perhaps in a different musical idiom, singing of leaky boats, inflexible governments, and women and children behind razor wire.’

‘To try to encapsulate how incredibly moving Katie Noonan & Circa’s collaboration is as a live experience will be a challenge. When a work of this caliber is presented it feels that any superlative used to communicate my interpretation of the performance is less than adequate’

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

A series of unique live shows featuring Katie Noonan,
Abby Dobson, Angie Hart and Martha Marlow

Songs That Made Me unites four of Australia’s finest female singer/songwriters, Katie
Noonan, Abby Dobson, Angie Hart and Martha Marlow, to share stories of their influences,
artistic journeys and the landmark songs that have sound-tracked their lives. Following a sell out preview season at Sydney venue Camelot last month, interest and demand has been so great that the girls could no longer resist the ‘lure of the road’!

Drawing from a list of artists ranging from Carole King, Jeff Buckley and Joni Mitchell to Fiona Apple, Nancy Sinatra, Tiddas and Kylie Minogue, these artists put a truly unique spin on some of the songs that have shaped their lives. The four singers share the stage for the entire show and collaborate naturally as they discuss and perform the songs, in a relaxed, intimate and spontaneous way.

Katie Noonan explains: “There is nothing I love more than sitting around with my girlfriends, talking and sharing stories. But as a musician, I find we don’t get to share the stage with other artists very often – especially female artists. I thought this would be a wonderful and unique opportunity to share the stage through story and song and hang out with cool chicks at the same time! I am very excited to share the space with these gorgeous women whom I admire and respect, and think it will be a very special night for the audience and us!”.

“I know it will be a pure delight to be sitting on stage amongst all these fabulously talented women, listening to their stories about their influences and musical love affairs and to sit with them in the round while they perform these songs; to behold their voices,” said Abby Dobson. “Then we will play a bunch of songs together; the songs that have made us thus far…. undoubtedly there will be four part harmonies we shall weave as well, which is just about the most fun a girl can have with her clothes on!”

Angie Hart said today, “I’m incredibly excited to be asked to join these wonderful women on stage. To collaborate with these wildly talented musicians, and to share in their stories was too good an opportunity to refuse.”

Songs That Made Me is a live show in two parts, complete with interval. The four singers will be joined by a female rhythm section and will also perform with their own instruments. Join Katie, Abby, Angie and Martha in this candid look at their lives through music – it’s sure to be a breathtaking evening, a wonderful celebration of some of our finest women of song.

The fantastic Martha Marlow will now be joining Katie, Abby and Thelma!

Songs That Made Me brings together four of Australia’s finest female singer/songwriters to share stories of their influences, artistic journeys and the landmark songs (by themselves and others) that have soundtracked their lives. The four singers share the stage for the entire show and collaborate naturally as they tell the stories of – and perform, some of the key songs that have shaped their lives.

Literally based around the concept of The Songs That Made Me, this format allows artists to talk about the first song they bought/learnt/wrote/got on radio/ fell in love to/ got them signed etc and is a vehicle for the artists to share some stories and collaborate together on each others song choices in a relaxed, intimate and spontaneous way.

Katie explains: “There is nothing I love more than sitting around with my girlfriends, talking and sharing stories. But as a musician, I find we don’t get to share the stage with other artists very often – especially female artists. I thought this would be a wonderful and unique opportunity to share the stage through story and song and hang out with cool chicks at the same time! I am very excited to share the space with these gorgeous women whom I admire and respect, and think it will be a very special night for the audience and us!”.

The four singers will be joined by a female rhythm section of Hannah James and Bree Van Reyk and will also perform with their own instruments. Join Katie, Abby, Martha, and Thelma and co for this exclusive intimate preview season before they take the show on a national tour later this year.
