Catie Curtis has always been a pop-leaning writer in folk clothing. Her vivid songwriting combines insightful lyrics with soulful strumming and energy. Much of her music entails emotional narratives that the audience can relate to. She has written about domestic violence, corporate greed, religion, homelessness, peace, and gay issues. Unlike artists whose careers are generated by one hit song, Curtis has garnered a fan base through word of mouth, without music industry hype. This unusual and flourishing indie career is being documented this year in a film by Rob Millis. (A trailer can be seen at www.symphonyofchaos.com.)
Multiple recordings (including a release scheduled March 2004 on Vanguard Records) along with her engaging live shows have garnered rave reviews, numerous awards, and a solid touring career in the US and Europe. Her songs have been featured on Dawson’s Creek, Felicty, Alias and Chicago Hope as well as in several independent films. She’s toured with Dar Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter and as part of Lilith Fair. This commitment to touring has resulted in a devoted, grassroots fan base. These days, Curtis is on the road playing 100 shows a year, both solo and with her band.
