Catherine AD

Catherine ADCatherine Anne Davies, or Catherine AD as she is known, releases her debut EP, ‘Carry Your Heart’, on 16 Feb. It’s a tantalising taste of the extremely talented multi-instrumentalist’s debut album, which is currently in production and will be out later this year. One of the Southbank Centre’s Emerging Artists In Residence, Catherine is a refreshingly dark addition to the list of female singer-songwriters being tipped for success in 2009. With touches of Nick Cave and PJ Harvey in her sound, her voice pours smoothly out of her mouth with a similar confidence and assuredness of those influences, allowing herself to be aware that she’s pretty good without slipping into arrogance. Check out the EP’s lead track on her MySpace page and see how long you can resist her charms.
