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"!
Singer-songwriter Catie Curtis is one of those rare talents: someone who can spin compelling, interesting and engaging music out of domestic happiness...Highly recommended.
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.
– Mary Gauthier
accessible, socially conscious songwriting and gorgeous voice

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.
Catie Curtis displayed a gift for making simple kindness seem edgy and chic, her gorgeous falsetto leaps embellishing the simplicity of her vocals.

With a clear, deceptively gentle voice, she can turn on a dime and thrill the listener with unforeseen power and emotion.
Sweet Life is an ode to affirmation, a clear antidote for troubled times.
(producer) Entress has skilfully fashioned and burnished a classic Catie Curtis song collection.

"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.

...she's one of the best singer-songwriters recording today.
