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.

With a clear, deceptively gentle voice, she can turn on a dime and thrill the listener with unforeseen power and emotion.
(producer) Entress has skilfully fashioned and burnished a classic Catie Curtis song collection.

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.

Curtis's songs are beautifully and deceptively well crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure, pained, and devoid of artifice as to suggest she knows not only your secrets, but your soul.
– Alanna Nash
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.
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 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.
