***Please note that due to unforseen circumstances, Ella Hooper has had to withdraw from the Songs That Made Me show. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
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.
