For years fans have asked Renée to record a Big Band album. Now comes the long awaited new studio album SWING.
Renée Geyer is one of Australia’s true musical treasures and to celebrate her 40th year in the music business she has delivered a recording that can only be described as a tour de force.
“To all who know me and those who will hear me for first time, you are in for a fabulous surprise with this new album. So it seems I’m one of the few women in the world to be recording my own BIG BAND album! To paraphrase Bette Davis, fasten your seat belts, you’re in for a bumpy... but beautiful ride!” says Renée.
Renée Geyer’s career has spanned four decades and is still going strong with her 25th album. 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.
Renée Geyer started life as a sassy blues belter. Now she is the consummate entertainer with a proud body of work still transfixing audiences with the power of her music and voice. SWING is destined to be her classic!
