“Her worldview is laconic, her lyrics lacerating, her voice now capable of going deeper than a Chilean miner.”

THE TELEGRAPH

“Keane, whose piano-playing remains as sprightly and inventive as ever, prompts gales of laughter with merely the raising of a quizzical eyebrow.”

THE TIMES

“Exudes faded glamour, a bit like Brighton sea front”

All About Me

Dillie Keane is a songwriter, singer, actress and cabaret artiste – perhaps best known as one third of the satirical cabaret trio Fascinating Aïda, of which she is the founding member. She’ll do a lot of things for payment, and has regularly written for a number of well known publications over her long, long, long life. Rather in the way that very important celebrities launch their own brands of swimwear, perfume and headphones she is hoping to launch a line of her seasonal chutneys which can be purchased at her farm gate for £3 per jar (leave the money in the honesty box, please.)

Fascinating Aïda, however, is her grand creation. The achievement can be told in numbers.

23 million YouTube hits to date
12 million hits (and growing) for Cheap Flights
36 years since formation
35 years with Adele Anderson
14 years with Liza Pulman
11 countries
8 CDs
8 Sopranos that you know of (and at least 5 you don’t)
7 nervous breakdowns
5 languages into which their songs have been translated
5 continents
4 DVDs
3 Videos (now lost)
3 Olivier Nominations
3 Drama Desk (NYC) nominations
2 London cabaret awards
1 Perrier nomination
1 City Limits award

In addition, I have been burnishing my credentials as an armchair ecowarrior. As a result of my blog (click on the link to find out more, if you don’t know it already) brought me to the attntion of the London South Bank University and I was asked to give the opening Keynote speech at their recent online event on Climate Change and Sustainability. I know some pals had difficulty logging on and have asked me if they can view the speech. It’s here on YouTube – my contribution starts at about 23:45 – but there are a lot of interesting speakers so don’t just watch me!

Thanks so much – and stay safe.
