The New Yorker calls her “a folk-rock goddess.” Rolling Stone says “In a clear, deceptively gentle voice, she can turn on a dime and thrill the listener with unforeseen power and emotion. Intricate acoustic picking sometimes slants its way into jazz territory, recalling Joan Armatrading, and her staunchly feminist messages further the comparison. But Curtis is very much an original, and a refreshing departure from the stale formula offered by many of today's singer-songwriters.” As Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe notes,“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.” Catie's studio work, engaging live shows and impressive touring career in the US and Europe earn rave reviews and wide recognition. Her songs have been featured on Dawson's Creek, Felicity, Alias, Chicago Hope, and Grey's Anatomy, as well as in several independent films. She's toured with Dar Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter and as part of Lilith Fair, and in March of 2006, Catie was named grand prize winner of the International Songwriting Competition, for her song “People Look Around”, co-written with Mark Erelli. The judges, (including Tom Waits, Loretta Lynn, Macy Gray, and Sonny Rollins) chose the winner from a field of 15,000 entries from 82 countries.
