Cat Martino

As mentioned in Rachel's review, Cat Martino danced and sang backup in Sufjan Stevens' 14+ piece band and has also played with Sharon Van Etten's band. Cat is releasing her own second LP Yr Not Alone this fall. The album's title track, which you can stream below, features Sufjan on backup vocals. Sufjan also co-wrote the track "We Belong" with Cat for the album which was produced by Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright, Patti Smith), mixed by Brian McTear (Matt Pond PA) and features guest musicians Casey Foubert (Sufjan Stevens, Richard Swift, Pedro the Lion) and C.J. Camereri (The National, Bon Iver, Antony & The Johnsons). In addition to singing, playing guitar and piano, Cat creates soundscapes by putting her vocals through a loop station. Check out a video of her covering The Cure's "Love Song" with her loop pedal below.

Cat has a few upcoming shows including Cake Shop on September 14 and opening for Megafaun at Mercury Lounge with Doug Paisley on September 25. Cat was originally scheduled to play Truck America but the festival has since been cancelled. Tickets are still available for the Mercury show.

anyone know why sufjan dresses like a frat-boy date rapist but sings like a folky backstreet boy?

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2011 7:10 PM

He doesn't dress like a frat boy. You're just confused because he's good looking, and frat boys are usually a lot better looking than hipster fags.

How is it possible to work with Sufjan, and resist grabbing his face kissing it?
xxxxx
