Cat Canteri is a true musician in the sense that she lives for the music, primarily as a solo artist but also with a rich history of collaboration with other bands and songwriters. Her last EP release in 2016, Late At Night captured both the vitality and intimacy of her live shows and ventured into new territory with the electric slide guitar and a bold and unselfconscious vocal delivery.
Recorded live to tape by Jeff Lang, its spirit was born from long hours spent singing and playing on the well-trodden stages of bars and clubs across Australia. The recording encapsulates the verve and passion Cat brings to her guitar playing and the soulful depth of emotion she can convey in her songs. You can hear traces of The Pretenders, Bonnie Raitt, Eleanor Friedberger and Ryan Adams filtered through the organic rock ’n’ roll of The Faces as she captures both the dash and brio of the live atmosphere and the melancholy of the late-night comedown.
Her highly anticipated new album, Inner North, is due for release in May 2018.
“Is a thoughtful piece, perfectly musically layered and showcasing Canteri’s wonderful tones, in short gorgeous” ~ The Boarder Mail
“Whilst she has the vocal ability to take you to some really dark places, she also has the freedom of xpression to bring you back. Similarly, whilst some of the songs have a vulnerability to them, you never lose sight of the strength that’s needed to come back” ~ Fatea Magazine UK
