You can catch Renée Geyer at the Brass Monkey in Cronulla on Thursday, August 7 and Friday, August 8.
When it comes to Australian music, Renée Geyer has her own pigeonhole because she is too hard to categorise – she is a singer, a songwriter, a producer and an author. She has been an important spoke in the wheel of Australian music for over forty years… she has sung the blues, jazz, soul, pop and reggae… there’s no hint of a comeback here because her career has never stalled.
In 2005 Renée was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame… 2007 saw her 22nd album, Dedicated, released… In 2010 she released The Ultimate Collection, covering four decades of soul and last year saw her SWING album. This year Renée is playing select venues and fans (and newcomers) will see that this enduring and endearing icon just gets better with age. She started in her teens as a sensual blues belter and she is still a sensual blues belter and the consummate entertainer.
