Killarney singer releases first CD
THE Killarney-bred local country music singer Geane S Brown has made an inspirational impact on the Warwick community with her music.
“I was at a social and I heard a person singing, and said ‘I can sing better than that',” Mrs Brown said.
The late bloomer never thought she could sing professionally, but after coming back to Warwick her talent has flourished as she celebrates the release of her first CD.
“When I sing, I sing to the people, not the books,” she said.
“My cousin made a CD under the name of Mal Russel a while back, and after that I wanted to do the same.
“My daughter Lea Brown in South Australia named the CD Whispering Wind because we both love to live life.
“She also did the coverwork, the background is the iconic Dagg's Falls in Killarney.”
Mrs Brown has been singing for about six years now and is actively performing in shows in the district such as the annual Warwick Show, Killarney Senior Citizens, Heavy Horse Day in Yangan and the Warwick Mardi Gras.
“Arthur Butler did all of the recordings, and I couldnt have done it without him,” she said. Geane sells her CD Whispering Wind herself. Where Geane has not lived, she has visited, but she's finally coming back to her roots in Warwick and Killarney.
