Cathrine Summers Biography
She’s been described as ‘a female Michael Bublé and performed alongside the likes of Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Marina Prior, but that doesn’t seem to faze the girl that Perth has claimed as their very own jazz songstress.
The UK-born vocalist fostered her career in Perth and over recent years has developed a reputation for delivering a voice with a rich and powerful timbre, a fun, natural stage presence, and a passion for jazz that transcends eras. She’s more than just a singer, with an audience engaging performance which is sexy, sassy and captivating.
Since her performing debut in 2008, Cathrine Summers has lit up many Perth events, festivals and has performed nationally and internationally, including sell out performances at Perth’s Fringe World. Her deep respect of the great singers of the past, her love of the Golden Era of Jazz, her European touch and her fun nature brings a new yet timeless feel to these classics.
Here’s what the experts are saying;
“The quality that sets her apart from other singers is that people of all ages feel ‘instantly familiar’ with her and soak up her banter and on-stage charisma.” The Music Review, Perth.
Cathrine combines in her music everything which exemplifies the traditions of jazz: a stunning voice, deep feeling and enthralling stage presence.
