BIO: The vivid songwriting of Catie Curtis combines insightful lyrics with addictive melodies and energy. Catie's recordings (released on EMI, Rykodisc, Vanguard and Compass), engaging live shows and impressive touring career (in the US and Europe) have earned her rave reviews and wide recognition. Her songs have been featured on Dawson's Creek, Felicity, Alias, Chicago Hope, and Grey's Anatomy, as well as in several independent films. She's toured extensively with Mary Chapin Carpenter and with the original Lilith Fair. Catie was named grand prize winner of the International Songwriting Competition, for her song "People Look Around", co-written with Mark Erelli. In January 2009 performed at the Human Rights Campaign's official Obama inaugural ball. In 2010, she performed at the White House. Catie is recording a brand new CD of new material in January, which will be released in the summer of 2011.
I'm digging out of the snow up here in Boston, ready to hit the road again for shows in Pennsylvania and Northern California. Shows in CT, NYC, Massachusetts and the Mid-West coming up in April. Go to CatieGigs for more detailed information
I just got back from Los Angeles where I recorded more than half of my new CD, Highway Del Sol! I hired producer Lorne Entress, who also worked with me on Long Night Moon back in 2006. We were lucky to catch drummer Jay Bellarose for the sessions, between his recording with Elton John and Bob Dylan. Bassist Jennifer Condos, who has been touring with Jay, backing up Ray Lamontagne, joined us along with guitarist Thomas Juliano in Ryan Freeland's LA studio. Ryan's engineering credits include Ingrid Michaelson, Aaron Neville and the Weepies. See photos of the sessions at CatiePhotos. We are so thrilled with what we got out there, and now we are beginning to track the rest of the CD here in the Northeast at Lorne's studio. I am hoping for an August 30th release on Compass Records!
I am continuing to offer a limited number of "Catie Curtis Wants to Marry You" wedding packages through GayWeddings.com This means I can be brought in to help you plan your vows, your readings, etcetera, and be there to officiate your wedding. I will also sing for you…
Well, I hope you are all huddling close to one another during this stormy winter in America and elsewhere. Spring must be right around the corner!
See you out there,
