According to Mitchell, Blue was “the purest emotional record that I will ever make in my life… there’s hardly a dishonest note in the vocals.”

Over the past 20 years, five-time ARIA award-winning artist Katie Noonan has proven herself one of Australia’s most hardworking, versatile and prolific artists.  Named one of the greatest Australian singers of all time by the Herald Sun, Katie has produced 20 studio albums throughout her career, with seven times platinum record sales under her belt and 27 ARIA award nominations that span diverse genres.

“Blue is an album that unequivocally changed my life. From a compositional, lyrical and vocal performance point of view it has inspired me deeply. I love that the album was gifted to me from another female artist, and it is an album I regularly recommend to up-and-coming female artists also. Joni’s artistry and music genius is unparalleled, and I absolutely love singing her songs,” says Katie Noonan

Sure to please not only Joni fans but lovers of music and poetry alike, this concert will be a spine-tingling evening you won’t want to miss.

It all goes down at Thornbury Theatre on May 12. Tickets for all shows are available here
