Nicknamed the “Folk-rock goddess” by The New Yorker, the vivid songwriting of Catie Curtis combines insightful lyrics with addictive melodies and energy. 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. After a year of amazing, life-changing experiences, it's no wonder Curtis was itching to jump back into the studio to try something she'd never done before: make a string band album. Over the years, Curtis' many fans have requested stripped down versions of her classic songs, capturing the spirit and intimacy of her live shows. With Hello Stranger, named one of the top ten folk CDs of 2009 by the Boston Globe, Curtis achieves that career goal.
