noir dream pop

Catherine's work as a solo artist creates an evocative world which deep dives into 60's film scores, jazz, classical, Latin and electronica.  She creates a unique hybrid of uplifting melancholy and cool martini sipping textures.

Most commonly described as the next potential Bond theme, Catherine's music is spacious, luminous and darkly intimate.

history

From her earliest days as bass guitarist with post punk group THE EARS, who were featured in Richard Lowenstein's iconic film 'DOGS IN SPACE', Catherine has been equally at home in the studio and onstage. 

Years of touring and recording with DECKCHAIRS OVERBOARD saw her regarded as one of Sydney's finest bass players, as well as a sought after vocalist.  She was the singing voice for the character Christine in the ABC series 'SWEET and SOUR'.

Dipping into Jazz and Brazilian ( MELODIOUS THUNK)  and Cuban Music   (MUSICA LINDA and LA FAMILIA), and working professionally for several years as a bellydancer in Sydney have given Catherine a exotic palette of sounds, harmonic modes, and beats to infuse her compositions with.
