There's a sophisticated simplicity about Curtis's singing and songwriting that brings to mind Suzanne Vega.
With a clear, deceptively gentle voice, she can turn on a dime and thrill the listener with unforeseen power and emotion.
Catie Curtis is an artist whose songs unarm me, move me to put down my defenses and just be with them. She lures me in through her kindness and respect for all beings.

Sweet Life is an ode to affirmation, a clear antidote for troubled times.
Maybe we could dispense with all that TYOTW and call 2008, instead, TYOCC - The Year Of Catie Curtis. Any takers?

accessible, socially conscious songwriting and gorgeous voice

"Hello, Stranger" is a beautiful album. I can't stop playing it. Charming, warm, intimate. Beautiful vocals, beautiful playing. And once more I'd like to applaud Garry West for an immaculate production.

Seventeen caught up with singer/songwriter Catie Curtis, whose songs have been featured on TV shows including Desperate Housewives and Alias, as she gets ready to release her ninth album, Sweet Life. She's also in the midst of the launch of her new charity initiative, "Aspire to Inspire"!
Quando dieci anni fa Catie Curtis, cantautrice con base a Boston, debutt con Truth From Lies la critica non manc di sottolineare le grandi potenzialit del suo cantautorato arrivando a definirla, in modo forse un po' improbabile, come una versione al femminile di Tom Petty.
...she's one of the best singer-songwriters recording today.

Any fool can write a love-gone wrong song; it takes a real genius to write a love-gone-right one. No urban songwriter does that better than Curtis.
