Catie Curtis and her Sweet Life

Musician Catie Curtis is no stranger to sharing the heartbreak. She's earned legions of fans with her honest songwriting and emotional delivery. But she's in a happy mood on her ninth album Sweet Life, releasing Sept. 9, and she's eager to spread the good cheer. "In order to stay sane and keep moving forward," the out singer says, you have to be able to look at all the bad news around you and still see the beauty that is there alongside the trouble." There's plenty of beauty and bounce on Sweet Life, which sports playful lyrics and a bigger, richer sound than Curtis's usual acoustic vibe. She even dips her toes into R&B, honky tonk, and a Death Cab for Cutie cover.
