Crafter of intricate, closely observed songs
“Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice.”
-The Boston Globe
“She creates an entire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody.”
-Neil Dorfsman, Producer
Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe many times. She is a compelling live performer and has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival as well as the Mountain Stage, Philadelphia and Kerrville Festivals. Internationally, she’s headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark. She’s the winner of some of the top songwriting awards, including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious Kerrville (TX) “Best New Folk Award” and, in one of the nation’s top music markets, the Boston Music Award for “Outstanding Folk Act”, three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.
For over 25 years, Catie toured full-time in the US and Europe, releasing 14 recordings and selling over 250,000 CDs (not to mention streaming and downloads). She has recorded for major (EMI Guardian) and independent (Rykodisc, Vanguard and Compass) labels, collaborating with some of the finest musicians and producers in the country. Before the pandemic, she continued to play shows for a legion of fans who shared stories with her at the merch table night after night. Her songs have been featured in films and tv shows, and she performed several times at the White House during the Obama administration. She’s intensely grateful for those years and honored to know that her music has been an integral part of so many people’s lives.
Catie has been making the transition to working as a community mental health counselor over the past three years. Her job as a therapist, while incredibly fulfilling, does not feed the artist in her! “I still need and want to create music. It can be hard to find the time, but writing is still how I make sense of my life and the world around me. Writing a song is like putting together a puzzle using the head, heart, hands and a guitar.” Fortunately, it’s important to her fans, too. With financial support from fans (through Patreon) Catie has written dozens of songs over the past couple of years, eleven of which appear on her new album The Raft. She would love for you to be a part of this special community of support, which you can find here: https://www.patreon.com/catiecurtis.
