Updated April 6th with additional tour dates. Country-pop singer Catherine McGrath may only be 19 but she is doing things the old fashioned way by getting out there and playing shows. The singer has an extensive touring schedule in place which runs through until August and includes dates opening for The Saturdays' Una Healy and a pair of rising Nashville stars Cam and Canaan Smith + slots at the Country 2 Country and The Great Escape festivals. Much more about Catherine McGrath including those tour dates follows:
Influenced by the early Taylor Swift releases and the new breed of country talent including Kacey Musgraves, Dan + Shay andMaddie & Tae + the UK pop of Ed Sheeran the young Irish singer has been embraced by social media and is looking at a very promising and busy 2017.
Following a series of live in-session videos, Catherine has just revealed ‘Say You Love Me’ filmed live from Firepit Studios, showcasing her stunning voice which is winning the hearts of young fans across the country.
This comes after the release of her debut EP One, which came out just before Christmas via Warner Bros. Records and saw Catherine dubbed as ‘Ones To Watch 2017’ by Amazon Music. The EP has so far clocked up almost 1 million streams on Spotify and features the three original tracks ‘Hell Would Have To Freeze Over’, ‘Cinderella’ and ‘She’ll Never Love You’ as well as her beautiful version of Jessie Ware’s hit single ‘Say You Love Me’.
All four tracks have been added to numerous Spotify playlists including the UK and Global New Music Friday Playlists and lead track ‘Hell Would Have To Freeze Over’ reached #1 on the Very Nearly Nashville Playlist – with Catherine as the cover star – and #9 on the Spotify Viral Chart.
Embracing her love for Nashville and country music while conserving her Irish folk roots and pop influence, Catherine’s songwriting talent is going from strength to strength. Writing of love, loss and life, her youthful touch relates to her audience and is as engaging as it is beautiful.
