Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky’s ode to love and family, Tryst, is now out on ABC/ Universal Music Australia.
Tryst is a very personal journey into words and music by two of Australia’s most respected musicians reinterpreting of some of the great love songs of our time. Kate and Paul deliver achingly, soulful renditions of songs that connect on a deep emotional level and have influenced both of them at some point in their lives.
The album includes reinterpretations of some of the greatest love songs ever written including Roberta Flack’s, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. “My grandmother loved this song, and it has in my lifetime transcended itself from love of her, and then falling in love with my husband, to seeing my child’s face for the first time” said Kate.
Also included are track by Bob Dylan (Forever Young), Divinyls (I Touch Myself), Leonard Cohen (Suzanne), Nina Simone (Wild is the Wind) and more. See below for Kate’s track by track descriptions and full tracklisting.
The seed for this musical dalliance was planted over 20 years ago with a one-off St Valentine’s Day show at the legendary Melbourne venue ‘The Continental’. Little did they know from that performance would grow a close and enduring friendship.
Kate and Paul will be touring Tryst nationally later this year with full details to be announced shortly.
