Tipsy- 2006 unsigned



Twenty four year old Kate Fuller grew up in South Australia’s Barossa Valley among vines, wine and music.

After 4 years of studying single studies jazz voice at the Elder School of Music in Adelaide, Kate immersed herself in the city’s thriving jazz scene, performing with some of Adelaide’s most acclaimed jazz musicians, and as FiFi in the Weimar Room’s acclaimed Fringe show The Berlin Cabaret.

In 2004, Kate took her career to the next level, writing, directing and performing in her one woman show Eva, a tribute to Eva Cassidy, to sold out crowds, during Adelaide's Cabaret Festival Season.

After winning the National Glenn Shorrock Scholarship Award for singer songwriters in 2005, Kate moved to Sydney to record her first demo CD with the help of respected sound engineer Ross A’hern, known for his work with prominent Australian jazz musicians such as Vince Jones.

This initial demo led Kate to Switzerland in July 2006, where she performed as a semi-finalist in the Montreux Jazz Festival, Shure Voice Competition.

One of just eight vocalists from around the world, Kate shared her raw talent with some of the biggest jazz names in the world, including festival founder Jean Claude Nobbs and Grammy Award winner Al Jarreau.

On her return to Australia, Kate worked on mastering her debut album Tipsy, which she recorded prior to Montreux, at SONY/BMG studios in Sydney.

For her debut recording, Kate once again enlisted the help of Ross A’hern, and along with pianist and co-songwriter Greg Burgett, percussionist Jamie Cameron and the renowned Craig Scott on double bass, she committed her smiling voice and passionate music to digital posterity.

Launched at Melbourne’s Bennetts Lane Jazz Club in July 2007, Tipsy is a smooth mix of Kate’s favourite jazz and folk covers, paired with her ardent, sultry and emotive original compositions.

Kate is currently living in San Diego, working on her second album, which she hopes to produce later this year.

So why not sit back with a glass of Shiraz and get ‘Tipsy’ with Australia’s most promising new drop, Kate Fuller.
