Cat Martino is clearly an lover of harmony, looping her voice and instruments live, creating a lush and layered sound much bigger than one person. As she moves onstage holding a microphone over keyboards, pedals, and samplers, you can feel her internal body rhythms coming alive in her songs.
The New York native has been a collaborating member a member of Sufjan Stevens' and Sharon Van Etten's bands, and appeared with The Shins on SNL last year. Her Sophomore Album, Yr Not Alone is a beautifully melodic piece featuring harps, thick bass beats, electric guitar, and swirly skittering synth lines. Even over this lush, enveloping backdrop, Martino's resonant voice is always the undeniable centerpiece. Catch Cat Martino and playing brand new songs, full of primal energy, driving with electronic beats, floor toms, whilst retaining as always an organic quality to captivate the moment with melodic and layered transcendence.
