For the first time, Kate Ceberano, one of Australia's best-loved entertainers, shares her story.

In her own unmistakeable voice, Kate Ceberano takes us on a very personal journey from her suburban childhood, her immersion in the Melbourne club scene of the eighties and her rise to stardom at the age of fourteen when she fronted the wildly popular funk band I'm Talking, to the life of a female performer and recording artist in London, Los Angeles and New York.

With parallel careers as a pop and jazz singer and songwriter, Kate has received the highest awards in the Australian music industry including the ARIA for Best Female Artist. She has delighted audiences in Harry M. Miller's hugely successful 'Jesus Christ Superstar', won a legion of fans when she won 'Dancing with the Stars', and made a triumphant debut for Opera Australia in 'South Pacific'. Now she reveals, for the first time, just what that was like.

People have been talking about Kate Ceberano since she was a teenager: Hugh Jackman described her as having 'truly one of the great voices this country has produced'; for Rolling Stone she is 'pure, soulful and powerful'. Now Kate is talking for herself.

Accompanied by never before published photos.

Read Caroline Baum's Review

She sure is. Kate Ceberano's career has had its fair share of ups and down. She disappeared from view for several years leaving fans like myself feeling a little bereft. Was it her crossover repertoire (from pop to jazz and back again) that confused recording labels as some suggested? The truth is more complex and interesting as she reveals in this candid memoir. It really communicates her energy and passion for performance, her positive philosophy of pick yourself up and start over, and her willingness to try anything. There's also some good stuff about body image and her relationship with her mother when faced with a family secret. It's great to see her back enjoying the success she deserves.
