Catherine recently moved to Portland, Oregon. When not touring, she indulges a new found passion for growing vegetables. In 2008 she drove 12,000 miles with her husband-to-be in a 1990 Mazda 323 called Swansong playing more than 40 planned and impromptu shows in dens, living rooms and gardens all over the United States.
Previous to arriving in Portland, Catherine lived for several years in Norfolk, England, releasing her second album to critical acclaim. ” ‘Hurricane Glass’ is one of those albums that soothes the listener into quietude… and only then coils its complications and ambiguities around you,” wrote Dain Cairns in the The Sunday Times.
After being picked up for the film “Running with Scissors,” and featured in “The O.C.,” the album’s lightning-rod track “Mr. Blue” reached the A-list at Britain’s most listened-to radio station, BBC Radio 2. Catherine toured the British Isles extensively, both as a headline act and in support of such artists as Martha Wainwright, Kelly Jones (The Stereophonics) and The Indigo Girls.
Catherine is touring with her new album “People in the Hole” which will be officially released June 25th.
