After a meteoric rise to fame at the age of 16, Casey became the youngest ever winner of Australian Idol in 2004. A proud Gumbaynggir and Dungari woman, over the last eighteen years, Donovan has made her mark not only as a musician, but also in the areas of stage, screen, presenting and writing. Casey is a multi-Award winner & nominee, including an ARIA No #1 Award and Triple Platinum for ‘Listen With Your Heart’ from the Double Platinum Album ‘For You’ and Deadly Awards for Best Album, Best Single and Most Promising New Talent.
2022 saw Casey return to the stage as a lead in the hit musical 9 TO 5, playing the role of Judy Bernly (Jane Fonda role from the hit movie) with mid show standing ovations for her solo ‘Get Out & Stay Out’. The year also saw Casey and band finally hit the road with the re-scheduled BluesDay tour dates to resounding success.
On 30 December 2022, Casey will release her brand-new single ‘Shake It’. A cross between Mambo #5 and Happy, Shake It has two ear-worm hooks which is unheard of in pop songs these days.
In 2023, Casey will co-host and perform at Sydney World Pride, a new musical theatre production and many more exciting new announcements.
