Suzanne "Zan" Abeyratne, or simply Zan, is an Australian-raised singer born in London. Known for her beautifully soulful voice, Zan came to prominence as one of the female lead vocalists of the 1980s Australian band, I'm Talking, which included the equally powerful vocal skills of Kate Ceberano.
Along with her twin sister Sherine (a member of Big Pig), Zan supplied her power-house backing vocals to Models, INXS, U2, and toured the world with other bands. After the demise of I'm Talking in 1987, Zan had a brief solo recording career in Australia, America, and England.
She also featured briefly in the episode "Santa Claws" in season 1 of Australian children's comedy series Round the Twist.
