Renée Geyer's past is Australian music history. Her career has spanned four decades and is still going strong. A precocious jazz, blues and soul singer in her late teens; Countdown royalty in her 20s; a string of pop, soul and reggae hits spanning the 70s and 80s; her LA years in the studio with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Sting, Joe Cocker and Chaka Kahn; her 90s renaissance with Paul Kelly. She is a singer, a songwriter, producer, and author. . 2012 saw Renée notch up 40 years in the music business and to celebrate this amazing anniversary Renée recorded a Big Band Swing album – something that no female artist has ever endeavoured to do in this country.
Renée Geyer had started out a sensual blues belter. Now she has evolved into a bona fide music icon - someone to look up to for never having let go of her dreams. This consummate entertainer with a proud body of work still transfixes a room with the power of her song.
