Renee Geyer’s past is Australian music history. Her career has spanned four decades and is still going strong.

Renee’s career spans a life as 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 Khan; and a 90s renaissance with Paul Kelly.

renee-geyer-She is a singer, a songwriter, producer and author.

In 2010, Renee release The Ultimate Collection, covering four decades of Soul. Whether in the studio or on stage, this is where Renee Geyer is home and continues to wow audiences with her remarkable voice.

2012 saw Renee notch up 40 years in the music business, and to celebrate this amazing anniversary, Renee recorded a big band swing album – something that no female artist has ever endeavoured to do in this country.

Renee 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.
