Solo electro-alt-pop artist based in Galway and originally from Laois. Singing alongside the electronic music on topics such as self doubt, heartbreak and indecision ‘powerfully expressed through Cat’s bruising, raw vocals (like a female Kurt Cobain)’-GetInHerEars .
Cat first started making music herself when a band she wanted to start didn't work on. After this disappointment Cat picked up the first instrument she could find, a keyboard from her brother's room and started crafting her own space in music. Since then Cat started producing and fleshed out a sound of her own and began releasing this music in 2017.
'I've become obsessed with the DIY ethos. It's really pushed me to make things, that years ago, I really thought I wouldn't be capable of' Cat says. 'Not making music was never a choice for me. I need to spill my guts in these songs to relate to the world.'
2021 Cat plans to release music with a more developed sound and plenty of it. 'I've made so much music lately. It's different but it's still me. I need to get it out there so once I start I have no plans to slow down for quite awhile'.
