Astrophysicist by day and musician by night; Catherine Allin is a singer-songwriter, and independent recording artist, based in London (UK). Her compositions are an eclectic blend of electronica-indie-folk. Sounds like Jeff Buckley came back to life, joined Radiohead, and then had a sex change. Her debut single "Ambush" was is out now on Spotify, iTunes (and all the usual suspects) and she is currently working on an E.P. for release in 2019.
Having made a name for herself on the live scene playing such events as the Fringe Festival, Brighton Live and in some of Brighton’s finest venues, Catherine is now breaking onto the London live scene. With expert command of a loop pedal, she adds colour and intensity to her enchanting songs; her emotive voice sometimes softly delivering the melody, sometimes soaring over layers of driving guitar to build epic soundscapes.
Catherine grew up listening obsessively to classics such as The Police, The Eurythmics and Paul Simon. Residing in the countryside where there’s not much to do beyond trespassing on stinky mushroom farms, breaking into derelict buildings, and climbing trees, it was not long before Catherine turned her hand to creating music for herself, defeating boredom forever!
From the moment of picking up the guitar Catherine learnt through experimentation rather than drawing directly from existing work, and as a result has developed an entirely individual style; stumbling across bizarre chords, which lead her to onto harmonic lyrical melodies and her own unique style.
