Renée Geyer is an icon of Australian music, an ARIA Hall Of Famer whose career has spanned over four decades, and has included classic performances across a variety of genres : soul, rock, blues, jazz, pop, reggae and more. From her teen years as a precocious blues singer, her hits through the Countdown years, her time in L.A. where she was a backing singer of choice for greats like Stevie Wonder, Joe Cocker and Chaka Khan, through to the hard-won authority of her later recordings, Renee owns any song that she performs.
That gritty, powerful voice is instantly recognisable, as is the emotive power of her phrasing. Nobody but Renee Geyer sings like that.
For this return to Bird's Basement, Renee will be accompanied by Jex Saarelaht (keyboards), Charlie Owen (guitar), Yuri Pavlinov (bass) and Tony Floyd (drums).
