Cat Dowling

Performed in Sofar NYC

Cat Dowling writes evocative dark pop songs. Her husky and achingly intimate vocals will draw you in from the outset. Dowling has played and fronted numerous music projects, the last of which Alphastates released two critically praised albums – "Made From Sand" (2004) and "Human Nature" (2009) – before splitting up in 2010 allowing Cat Dowling concentrate on motherhood and her solo creative project. She gained many adminers for her energy on the live stage and her hushed and raw deliveries. Comparisons to Liz Frazer from Cocteau Twins and Beth Gibbons from Portishead regularly appeared. Her debut album The Believer, released to criticial acclaim in 2013, was described by many as her best work to date. The opening track, The Believer, featured on Witches of East End (with Julia Ormonde) as well as the groundbreaking second series of Cinemax' Banshee in the US. Somebody Else appeared in the highly received “My name is Emily” alongside an award-winning music cast including Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent mcMorrow and Jake Bugg amongst others. A recent collaboration featured on How to get away with Murder (featuring Viola Davis). Her highly anticipated follow-up album will be out later this year.
