Katie Noonan
Artist

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. 

Katie’s  unwavering perseverance in aiding the development of Australia’s  diverse musical landscapes has inevitably created a healthier artistic domain for future generations to come. An unrelenting advocate for the arts, the APRA ambassador is constantly championing its vitality and growth across our rural towns and ever-changing cities, helping the Queensland Music Festival continue its legacy of integrating community projects in over 100 regions across the state. 

In  the midst of owning her record company and working as an artistic  director, Katie remains committed to what sets her artistry apart from  the pack: her ability to evolve. “There’s always going to be something  to learn or someone who can teach you something” she explains. Music, for Katie, is a lifelong lesson, a generous act of giving, and a means to change the world.
