Our finest female musicians pay homage to the songs that have shaped their lives


Album set for release 10th October with 100% of profit going to Cancer Council, national tour to follow


Acclaimed Australian singer songwriter Katie Noonan assembles her musical sisters next month for the return of the glorious ‘Songs That Made Me’ series.  Growing from a successful tour in 2013, this year’s undertaking is more extensive – a full length album combining the talents of this country’s most breathtaking female artists, with 100% of profits directed to Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign, followed by an extensive national tour.


Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon raises funds and awareness for women affected by breast and gynaecological cancers.  Cancer Council is the only charity that works across every area of cancer through world-class research, prevention programs, advocacy and patient support services.  For more information visit

Released on 10th October and coinciding with  Cancer Council’s ‘Emeralds and Ivy Ball’, Songs That Made Me features an inspired tracklist, showcasing 14 female artists who are passionate about the cause. From much-lauded talents such as Renee Geyer, Deborah Conway, Mia Dyson, Angie Hart and Katie herself, to new stars Sam Buckingham, Stonefield, Melody Pool, Sahara Beck and more, the line up is impressive.  Each artist has chosen a track with special significance, continuing on with the Songs That Made Me theme of sharing stories of influences, artistic journeys and the landmark songs that have sound-tracked their lives.

The Songs That Made Me tour will follow from the end of October and into November, when Katie Noonan, Angie Hart, Melody Pool and Sam Buckingham take the show on the road!  Starting in Perth on 30th October, they’ll visit Adelaide, Melbourne, Castlemaine, Penrith, Sydney, Newcastle, Byron Bay and Brisbane, before finishing off in Gold Coast style on November 23rd.


Katie Noonan said today, ‘I am so thrilled to be able to join with these remarkable women, utilising the Songs That Made Me concept, to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign.  It’s not every day that you get to work with such incredibly gifted artists and contribute something meaningful at the same time. Sadly, cancer has touched all of us in some way and I’ve recently experienced first hand, through the illness of a family member, the amazing benefits that quality nursing care and support can bring.  I am looking forward to getting our campaign underway and raising money for such a worthy cause.  On a personal note, our stellar husband and wife rhythm section – Evan Mannell and Zoe Hauptmann – will be touring for the first time with their new baby boy Alby and the wonderful Angie Hart will be resplendent with her pregnant glow – so will be special on many levels!”.
