The songwriting of Catie Curtis, who performs 8 p.m. March 2 at The Ark, combines insightful lyrics with addictive melodies and high energy. Catie’s recordings and impressive touring career in the U.S. and Europe have earned her rave reviews and wide recognition.
Her songs have been featured on “Dawson’s Creek,” “Felicity,” “Alias,” “Chicago Hope” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” as well as in several independent films. She’s toured extensively with Mary Chapin Carpenter and with the original Lilith Fair. Catie was named grand prize winner of the International Songwriting Competition for her song “People Look Around,” co-written with Mark Erelli.
In January 2009 she performed at the Human Rights Campaign’s official Obama inaugural ball, and she’s been back to the White House several times. Catie’s new album, “Stretch Limousine on Fire,” delivers some of the finest material of her career: 10 original songs that push at her own musical boundaries and explore harsh realities that are tempered with moments of fleeting beauty. This temporary nature of life is a theme that pervades the album from the first notes. The opening song, “Let It Last,” which features folk powerhouse and former tour mate Mary Chapin Carpenter singing harmony, finds Curtis pleading “I know it can’t last / And all I ask is let it last a little longer.” Tickets are $20.
