The authoritative voice of Central Australia, Catherine Satour’s sounds are provocative, magnetic and enchanting. Catherine 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 nine 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, while also travelling to remote communities facilitating music and performance workshops with local schools and youth organisations. Catherine mentors young local artists through MusicNT’s Desert Divas project. This project led to the October 2012 release 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.
