With a dedicated fan base across the U.S. and Europe, and with help from Mary Chapin Carpenter and an impressive roster of seasoned players, Catie Curtis’ latest release, Long Night Moon, is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of 2006 for devotés of the singer-songwriter tradition. With ten years of recordings under her belt, the songs on Long Night Moon speak deftly in the voice of a woman who understands fully the joys and frustrations of adulthood without compromising the wit and gentle spirit that have always characterized her work. Backed by a stellar band including John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter), John Sands (Aimee Mann), Mark Rivard (Morphine, Shawn Colvin), Kevin Barry (Paula Cole, Jonatha Brooke). The CD was produced by Lorne Entress
A road warrior since the mid-90s, Curtis has toured with the Lilith Fair and with artists such as Dar Williams and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Her songs have appeared in numerous television shows (Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, Grey’s Anatomy, and Alias) and independent films (500 Miles to Graceland, A Slipping Down Life).
Featuring: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kris Delmhorst, Mark Erelli, Erin McKeown and Chris Trapper (The Push Stars).
Catie was recently awarded the International Songwriting Competition’s Grand Prize for "People Look Around," which she co-wrote with Mark Erelli and which appears on Long Night Moon. The song unflinchingly tackles the human toll of Hurricane Katrina and was selected from 15,000 entries from 82 countries.
