Renee Geyer

Renee Geyer

Renee Geyer is booked in association with the Artist's representative.

Renee has never lost her remarkable soul and blues voice.  She has had hits, written a book, toured the world as part of Joe Cocker's backing band, worked in Los Angeles on some very prestigious projects and, for nearly three decades, been Australia's answer to the feisty Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin.

Renee is a powerful, assertive woman with a tireless determination to open people's ears to the glories of great soul music.

Renee Geyer's past is basic Australian music history.

  • An amazing jazz, blues and soul singer in her late teens
  • Countdown Royalty in her 20s
  • A string of pop, soul and reggae hits spaning the 70s and 80s
  • LA years with Stevie Wonder, Sting and Joe Cocker
  • 90s renaissance with Paul Kelly

Renee's singing career began in the early 1970s as a vocalist with the jazz band Dry Red and Sun. The band released one album before Geyer departed in 1972.

First solo album It's A Man's Man's World in 1974. The title track, a James Brown cover version became her first hit single.

Heading In The Right Direction also reached the top twenty in 1976.

The album Moving Along released in late 1976 was the biggest hit to date with the single Stares and Whispers. 

1980 - signed with Mushroom Records and released the album  So Lucky. The album took her away from the blues and jazz she had so closely identified with and added a salsa and reggae style.

The single Say I Love You became the biggest hit of her career when it reached number 5 on the Australian singles charts.

In 1999 she made a comeback with the album Sweet Life, and in 2003 received her first ARIA Award nomination for her album Tenderland.

She's been heading in the right direction for 20 years, and Renee Geyer has finally made it, writes Bruce Elder.

Pity poor Renee Geyer. Over the years she's been called just about everything from "difficult woman" and "casualty" to "has-been" and now she's about to enter the zone of "great survivor". All these stereotypes are quite unfair.

She's never lost her remarkable soul and blues voice. She's never stopped working. She's had hits, written a book, toured the world as part of Joe Cocker's backing band, worked in Los Angeles on some very prestigious projects and, for nearly three decades, been Australia's answer to the feisty Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin.

She's a powerful, assertive woman with a tireless determination to open people's ears to the glories of great soul music. And here, after years of false starts and label changes, is the album she has always threatened to make, an album that deserves to sell by the barrowload.

Taking the songs she loves into the studio with all her old mates (the ever-reliable Mark Punch and Ross Hannaford loom large), producing the record herself and getting backing vocal help from the likes of Vika and Linda Bull, she has produced an album of soul classics.

Here are songs everyone knows, Midnight Train to Georgia, Try a Little Tenderness, Sexual Healing and Heading in the Right Direction, filtered through years of love and intelligence. The results are fine interpretations that are unique expressions of Geyer's rare and beautiful vocal talent.

The album also includes fine versions of songs by Prince (Thieves in the Temple), Leon Russell (A Song for You), Curtis Mayfield (The Makings of You) and finishes on a sublime note with her subtly reinterpreted and emotion-charged version of the Rose Royce classic Love Don't Live Here Anymore. It actually fades out on a very funky groove.

There's not a bad track on the album (although, in fairness, I wonder why anyone bothers to attempt Sexual Healing when Marvin Gaye's version is so definitive) and Geyer has demonstrated that, when confronted with the right material and truly sympathetic production values, an Australian musician really can produce a very, very good soul album.

Geyer has always been hampered by the fact that she was born in a country where soul music was little understood and rarely admired. Had she been born in the UK or US she would have been recognised as one of the great soul interpreters of her generation.

Her strong, sensuous voice and her ability to invest songs with deeply felt emotion puts her in the very highest echelons of soul singers.

This album, more than any other of her 20 releases, sees Geyer fully realising her long-admired potential.
