In Starlight he joins forces with the legendary Ringo Starr, and fellow contemporary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Grammy-award winning Eurythmics fame). The result is an album that is raw, emotional and unequivocal soulful rock. Kate Ceberano is revered as one of the finest female vocalists on the music scene today. With a plethora of award-winning albums under her belt, she was the first Australian woman to be inducted into the Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) Hall of Fame.
