"Folk-rock goddess" - The New Yorker
Catie delivers her most personal effort to date with Long Night Moon, an intricate work of stripped down modern folk. Long Night Moon features the track People Look Around for which Curtis (along with co-writer Mark Erelli) was honored with the Grand Prize in this year’s International Songwriting Competition (out of 15,000 entries from 82 countries). People Look Around addresses the human toll and the divisive political landscape that arose in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Produced by Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Mark Erelli, Alastair Moock), Curtis & Entress focused on simple arrangements for Long Night Moon featuring strings and vintage instruments to create a soundscape with an often hushed quality that never overwhelms her sweet, strong voice. Recorded over several months, the songs on this record have a raw and organic quality that reflects Curtis’ live performance style.
Curtis’ richly textured voice continues to shine on this new body of work which addresses themes of waiting, questioning, & reconnecting. The songs on Long Night Moon were written at the time when Curtis first became a parent. "Becoming a parent has made me more aware of and invested in the world my children will inherit."
Don’t miss this chance to hear the captivating tunes of "Folk-rock goddess" Catie Curtis live at Joe’s Pub!
