Info for Kensal Road
Kensal Road was recorded in the UK with songwriter/producer James Bryan (Nelly Furtado, Lisa-Marie Presley), and given a final mix back home in Australia and is a return to her striking all-round talents as an artist. With elements of her broad pop roots blended together with the resurgent sounds of compelling singer/songwriters worldwide, Kensal Road marks a new chapter in Kate Ceberano's illustrious musical career.
Ceberano said about the album 'I think it’s one of my favorite albums because of the elements that went into making it, working with some amazing European musicians, having the creative control and the support of Sony Music Australia. Rather than me having to go to them and say I want to do this they said ‘we’re ready for you to do this now’ and that is a beautiful reversal of flow if you know what I mean.'
Musically, „Kensal Road“ echoes Kate’s early musical influences of Hawaiian folk music and Fleetwood Mac, but equally the music reflects the very current sounds of the nu-folk and nu-country movement, reflected in such singer/songwriters like Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, and Ryan Adams.
Produced by Steve Scanlon, Ben Balfour
One of Australia's most gifted and versatile performers, Kate Ceberano's music crossed several genres and made her one of the most popular female vocalists of the 1980s and '90s. Ceberano first rose to prominence as the teenage lead singer of Australian funk-pop outfit I'm Talking in 1985. Their debut (and as it transpired, only) album, Bear Witness, produced three hit singles, including "Love Don't Live Here Anymore." I'm Talking disbanded in 1987, and Ceberano released her debut solo jazz album in that same year. Kate Ceberano and Her Septet, featuring her brother Phil and veteran session musicians Alex Pertout and Jex Saarelaht, became a huge hit, and was followed in 1988 by You've Always Got the Blues, which featured Ceberano and Wendy Matthews as vocalists. In 1988 the first single from Ceberano's eagerly awaited first pop album was released. "Bedroom Eyes" became the highest-selling Australian single of 1988 and helped Ceberano win two ARIA awards for best female vocalist in 1988 and 1989. The album, Brave, was released in 1989 and went triple platinum. "Young Boys Are My Weakness" was also released as a single from this disc. Another jazz album called Like Now followed in 1990, then her second pop album, Think About It, appeared in 1991. However, it could not build on the success of Brave and failed to produce a strong single. 1992 saw a stage production of Jesus Christ Superstar open in Australia. Ceberano won the part of Mary Magdalene, and performed alongside John Farnham, Noiseworks frontman Jon Stevens, and former Rose Tattoo lead singer Angry Anderson in the show. The Australian cast album went four-times platinum and Ceberano's song from the production — "I Don't Know How to Love Him" — was released as a single. In 1996, another pop album, Blue Box, was released, and this was followed in 1998 with Pash. The '60s-influenced pop of the title track became her biggest hit since "Bedroom Eyes." A best-of collection entitled True Romantic appeared in 1999.
