Catie Curtis

The Boston music scene has spawned so many great artists, it's hard to keep up, from flat-out rockers like Aerosmith and Morphine to thoughtful folkies such as Patty Griffin and Ellis Paul. That's where Catie Curtis comes in. With her instantly recognizable voice and insightful and often humorous lyrics, Curtis has steadily gained a sure footing among her peers. Curtis first garnered attention as she toured the house concert and coffeehouse circuit (circa the early '90s) to support her independently released disc, From Years to Hours, which followed the cassette-only release of Dandelion in 1989. Her young sound had echoes of Rickie Lee Jones and her songwriting revealed an innocent yet heartfelt poetry that would only get deeper and richer with more life experience. Hear Music took note and put out Truth from Lies in 1995. That offering got Curtis noticed over at EMI/Guardian, who, consequently, re-released the disc in 1996 and its successor, Catie Curtis in 1997. These albums showcased the evolution of the artist and songwriter, as she moved slowly away from her raw folk roots to a slightly more pop sound. The song "Soulfully," from Catie Curtis, was warmly embraced, and found its way to both radio and television with exposure on Dawson's Creek and Chicago Hope.

Curtis continued to build a fan base through extensive touring, even hopping on legs of the Lilith Fair tour. When her label closed its doors, she found another home at Rykodisc and sent A Crash Course in Roses into the world in 1999. This offering centered around the haunting theme of the impact of sudden events on life. After touring with Dar Williams for a spell, Curtis was inspired for the next project. So, for her 2001 effort, My Shirt Looks Good on You, she took a more collaborative approach to the songwriting and teamed up with a number of Boston's finest songwriters, including Billy Conway and Mary Gauthier. She also teamed up with hotshot producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker to redefine her sound while making the record. The result was another surefooted step forward for Curtis and a harbinger of more great things to come. Dreaming in Romance Languages, Curtis' first for Vanguard, appeared in 2004. Long Night Moon, much of which reflected on her life as the new mother of two adopted little girls, arrived in 2006, followed by the aptly titled Sweet Life in 2008. ~ Kelly McCartney, Rovi

So excited I get to see Catie on tour in October - I live in Tucson, so I only get to see her if I travel to Cali or the East Coast! Have loved her since her early days on the coffee house circuit in New England.
I discovered Catie through her cousin Ken, who gave me the cassette tape of Dandelion and was immediately hooked. She was just starting then. A friend of mine had connections at our public radio station and they started playing her music. I met her at a small show and she was very sweet and down-to-eart h . So glad she is receiving recognition she deserves!

don;t read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. tomorrow will be the best day of your life. however if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading don't stop. This is so scary put this on atleast 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come out the screen in big letters. this is so scary because it actually works
always room for catie curtis...can listen all day to her beautiful voice and clever lyrics!
Crash Course in Roses is her Masterpiece.

Love ~ Love ~ Love her!!
I still have Truth From Lies CD. Catie first sent a copy to my fledgling movie magazine. OIL the Music Magazine, 1991-1995, was a free publication featuring artists traveling through the area. I picked this CD out of a huge box of demo cds that were sent to us in the hopes of getting a review. I was hooked. I played Truth From Lies throughout the house-church we lived and worked in. I know they were reviewed and possibly even interviewed. . . .
Beautiful voice - real and still delicately handled in the upper register. The light in her really shines through!

she's got an awesome voice...
Wow! Glad she's still at it and Pandora is playing it. Good poetry, not to mention voice. Thanks Pandora. (we do read that a lot, don't we? Usually for good reason.) I'd still vote for Lucy Kaplansky, but almost different genres. Both great.
CATIE CURTIS HAS A SWEET SOFT VOICE,HAD NOT HEARD OF HER BEFORE,THANK S PANMDORA.... . . . .
Where are her early albums?

One of my favorite songs in life is "Dad'
s Yard" from the Truth From Lies CD. My dad has been gone ten years, and this songs still puts a tear in my eye. Such a pure, sweet voice.

Such a great voice and song writer. I love the song "Elizabeth"
What a great artist and a very down to earth person. I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with her after her show here in my little city. Thanks Catie!!
I have three of Catie's cd's and the one that I like best is simply titled, "Catie Curtis". It's got some astounding music and I surprised that you don't have it listed in the "selected discography" .
