Bertie Blackman - Black Cats

Bertie Blackman - Black Cats
Bertie Blackman’s first encounter with her artistic self came as a child sashaying across her mother and father’s paint strewn studio floor. The daughter of iconic Australian artist Charles Blackman, not many musicians can boast a foundation of emotional expression like Bertie, “I come from a family of painters, so everything I do is pretty visual. You can see and feel my music”.

Constantly evolving as an artist, Bertie continues to develop her sound on ‘Secrets and Lies’ (2009) blending electronic influences with her signature vocal style and penchant for brutally honest lyrics in a modern exploration of pop music. “I wanted to do something more electronic and less band-oriented” says Blackman, “It’s dark, but it’s also a pop record”.

Secrets and Lies’ is a result of the meeting of great minds including Sydney based UK producer Lee Groves (Goldfrapp, Gwen Stefani) and Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Architecture in Helsinki.)

In November 2009 Bertie was awarded the ultimate in Australian music industry accolades: an AIR Award for BREATHROUGH INDEPENDENT ARTIST OF 2009 and an ARIA Award for BEST INDEPENDENT RELEASE 2009.

“When I’m playing music, I just disappear into what’s going on,” she says, “it all just sort of channels through.”
