Kathy McCabe has been a professional writer since her ex-boyfriend decided to chuck in the music writing business to go backpacking in 1989. Silly boy - she got the job and has kept it ever since with two major detours. The first was to EMI Virgin in 1996 to kick start their local music roster which had been dormant for a couple of years. After signing Alex Lloyd, McCabe decided she was of better use back on the media side of the fence where she could do more to promote and support Australian musicians. And enjoy the occasional chat with an international superstar. After working as the entertainment writer and music editor for the Sunday Telegraph for five years, she returned to her old stomping ground at The Daily Telegraph in 2003. Kathy is now an award-winning National Music Writer, her work regularly appears in The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier-Mail and The Advertiser.
