Galway, County Galway
A solo angsty-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 .
The reason for starting to produce and do everything solo first came from a place of necessity to start finding my sound and fleshing out my music. It now comes from a place of total passion. This time last year I independently released my first single and have had an interesting year to follow. Recently being selected as a Hot Press 'Hot for 2019 artist, being 1 of 30 acts for RTE 2FMs ‘Play the Picnic’ competition, playing Electric Picnic.
With the debut EP ‘Contrast’ & single 'Easier' receiving praise from The Last Mixed Tape, Clash Magazine, Hot Press, 2FM, Spin103 and 98FM and along with newest single ‘Situation’ being released from the Sophomore EP coming later this month it's been an exciting year.

'Tune of the Day' - Dan Hegarty, 2FM
