Kate Ceberano & Paul Grabowsky: Tryst
Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky have taken their longstanding friendship to the next level with the release of their debut album, Tryst.
The seed for this musical dalliance was planted over 20 years ago with a one-off St Valentine’s Day show at the legendary Melbourne venue ‘The Continental’. Little did they know from that performance would grow a close and enduring friendship. Revisiting the theme decades later brings with it the impact of love and loss we all endure –experiences that form who we are and how we express ourselves.
Paul and Kate lay bare their own emotions on this warm, heartfelt ode to love lost, found and unrequited.
The repertoire is as diverse as love itself. One moment diving into 60s pop with Cilla Black then 80s Aussie rock with the Divinyls, then flirtation with jazz and chanson. Kate Ceberano’s vocals are raw and heartfelt and Grabowsky provides inspired spontaneous arrangements so rich in colour you could swear there is a band working behind him. Their musical connection is such that they respond instantaneously to what the other offers, enjoying the interaction that only the bond of so many years brings. Their tryst is no longer a secret.
