Renee Geyer possesses what is undoubtedly the most versatile and stunning voice in contemporary Australian music today.
Renee's music and the ability she has as a singer has grown and evolved by experimenting with many different styles. She has continued to push the envelope during her career, but the one thing that remains constant is the high calibre of musicians that Renee has worked with both here and overseas. The reason for this unusually tight bond with most musicians is her spontaneous and fresh approach to material, old and new, which then encourages musicians to stretch themselves as well.
Her influence is so strong that a recent benefit concert organised by Renee to raise money for Marc Hunter brought together the likes of John Farnham, Dave Graney and Tex Perkins with newer bands Snout and Even.
Perhaps the Herald-Sun best summed up Renee Geyer when commenting on her work for Marc Hunter. Congratulating her organisational efforts, they wrote she was able to produce 'an event without ego only compassion.' She sings it like that as well.
One of the biggest challenges with a singer who has had such a prolific career is deciding which songs warrant being included in a compilation entitled the "Best Of". The decision to omit certain tracks was by no means an easy one, and the tracks included were narrowed down by way of representing Renee as a vocalist and her growth as a singer. The songs chosen were those that represent the transformation and development through the years. A vocal journey of Renee Geyer.
Renee has always had major respect from her peers in the industry, and on 'Sweet Life' she works closely with a high calibre of musicians including Mark Kennedy, Harry Brus, Paul Berton, Paul Gray, Spencer P. Jones, Peter Luscome, Shane O'Mara, Ross Hannaford and many more.
