“Have you ever been to a show where you feel an invisible wall between you and the performer? Catie Curtis pulls the walls down.” – Mary Chapin Carpenter
Catie Curtis is something more than a songwriting star. Her career spans 14 albums and for over 20 years, she’s been a perennially popular headliner, performing everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the White House.
What do you call a career like that? It seems premature for statue-monikers like legend and icon, and institution is too cold a word for such a warm-hearted songwriter, known for her uncompromising but kind-eyed lyrics. A career others see as a marvel of consistency, Curtis sees as a hopscotch of serendipity, small-town roots, and the search for honest stories. “To me, a song is like a conversation with a friend,” she says.
“Any fool can write a love-gone-wrong song; it takes a genius to write a love-gone-right song. No urban songwriter does that better than Catie Curtis.”
– The Boston Globe
“With her deceptively gentle voice, she can turn on a dime and thrill the listener with unforeseen power and emotion.”
