Alice Springs’ own Catherine Satour shares experiences of life, love and place through songs that fuse rock and soul.
Catherine has music in her blood. She played her first gig at 9 years old with her father Bunna Lawrie and his legendary band Coloured Stone.
Catherine devotes a lot of her time and energy to developing local talent in Central Australia. She travels remote communities facilitating music and performance workshops with local schools and youth organisations.
She also mentors young local artists through the Desert Divas project. This project led to the release in October 2012 of Central Australia’s first compilation album of Indigenous female artists – Desert Divas; Volume 1.
Catherine performed original material with the Darwin Symphony Orchestra in ‘Songs From Big Sky Country’, a feature event for the 2011 Alice Desert Festival and she was nominated in 2012 for a National Indigenous Music Award.
2013 will see the release of Catherine Satour’s first solo album.
Catherine Satour is of Arrernte and Mirning descent.
