The incredible vocal talents of Katie Noonan will be on display again in 2015 with the launch of her heartfelt new single and EP, Peace Is My Drug.
Following on from a number of years of unique and highly-acclaimed projects—Songs That Made Me, Love Song Circus, Songbook and Songs of the Southern Skies with Karin Schaupp—this celebrated singer-songwriter is ready to share her new original material. The EP will feature two new tracks: Peace Is My Drug and Cloud of Home. Peace Is My Drug is based around the Michael Leunig poem Peace, with Leunig creating a second verse to the poem exclusively for this song.
Katie will be performing with a band again, returning to her first love and harking back to the days of George after several solo, duo, ensemble and cross-platform collaborations in recent years.
This new band line-up includes two members of The Captains—Stu Hunter and Declan Kelly—as well as outstanding Melbourne guitarist Ben Edgar (Angus & Julia Stone). The tour will see the band premiering new material from the Peace Is My Drug EP and forthcoming album, as well as songs from the Katie Noonan and The Captains project and one or two Noonan favourites. Don’t miss the opportunity to see her at The Triffid on Saturday 28 March.
