Highly acclaimed singer songwriter Kate Ceberano has been thrilling fans each week with her live streamed television show, Kate Ceberano and Friends, based on the same concept as her 1994 ABC television program. Wanting to assist musicians and industry friends in this time of isolation and widespread shut down of the live music scene, Kate got behind Support Act, an Australian charity delivering crisis relief services for artists, crew and music workers.
“It was the only thing I knew to do to counteract the devastating loss of work and community. I was in shock! And I thought “ACT”…start something ANYTHING!” says Kate.
Kate Ceberano and Friends is now in its 5th week, and this Friday’s live streamed event will feature the glorious vocals of Katie Noonan (five-time ARIA award-winning artist), powerhouse singer and piano player Brian Cadd (platinum album seller, ARIA Hall of Famer, multi-award winning songwriter) alongside David Campbell, who is one of Australia’s most popular and versatile entertainers.
Singer/songwriter Rick Price who owned the airwaves on Australian radio in the 90’s and in more recent times has worked with the likes of Samantha Jade, Guy Sebastian and Dami Im, will also bring his sublime voice to the show. Also featuring this week is Ross Irwin (The Cat Empire), a celebrated multi-instrumentalist, producer and arranger (Paul Kelly, Angus and Julia Stone, Josh Pyke) and the extraordinarily talented Jimi Hocking, a songwriter, singer and guitarist of the highest calibre.
The production and audio quality of the live streamed event is world class, managed by Steve Scanlon, who has been Kate’s sound engineer for the last 20 years and has worked with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Mariah Carey and Vanessa Amorosi.
Previous guests have included Dami Im, Vanessa Amorosi, Vika and Linda Bull, Richard Wilkins, Phil Ceberano, Kathleen Halloran, Em Rusciano, Dallas Frasca, Chick Corea (24 time Grammy winning jazz legend), Mark Isham (Grammy & Emmy Winner, Academy Award Nominee), James Morrison and Paul Grabowsky.
