When the singer/songwriter movement boomed in the mid-90s, Catie Curtis was at its forefront. Now a veteran artist with a 15 year career, Curtis has recorded ten critically acclaimed solo albums and has had songs featured in numerous TV shows including Dawson's Creek, Felicity, Grey's Anatomy and Alias, as well as in films such as 500 Miles to Graceland and A Slipping Down Life.
Catie's 2011 CD is a bold statement of beauty yet simultaneously grittier -- a bit more raw -- than her past work. The album features guest vocalists Lisa Loeb and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Standout tracks include the title cut, Shadowbird, Highway del Sol and River Wide.
In 2009 she was honored to be selected to perform at the inauguration of President Barack Obama in Washington D.C.
"Catie Curtis displayed a gift for making simple kindness seem edgy and chic, her gorgeous falsetto leaps embellishing the simplicity of her vocals." - Boston Globe
"She's one of the best singer-songwriters recording today." - AfterEllen.com
"Curtis' songs are beautifully and deceptively well crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure, pained, and devoid of artifice as to suggest she knows not only your secrets, but your soul." - Alanna Nash
"Stretch Limousine on Fire is a definite result of someone with conviction that they've put in their time but that they've still got plenty to say. With that, though, it's important to mention that what makes Limousine so compelling is Curtis' curiosity-- for life, love, freedom, understanding-- curiosity that keeps her from ever being preachy and makes the listener feel like they've tapped into a moment of introspection rather than polished ideology." - Peter Zimmerman, Glide Magazine
