Catherine Joy is rumored to be the lovechild of Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell, carried off by a disoriented albatross shortly after her birth. She spent much of her childhood on an uncharted island with a guitar and piano, where she soon grew tired of the taste of coconuts and learned to lure sea turtles to her with songs of love, loss and ornithology. She relocated to Brooklyn to attend Pratt Institute and after graduation, took a job keeping seagulls away from the JFK tarmac with falcons and flare guns. She found her way to Ithaca five years ago and promptly seduced local designer Steve Rokitka who became her bass player and consort. While recording The Seagulls Are Coming she recruited drummer Dan Lashkoff for session work that quickly turned into a full-time spot in the band.
Armed with a piano, guitar and powerful rhythmic stomp, Catherine’s works range from tearjerking love songs to raucous anthems. Sweet and vulnerable, yet consistently powerful and timeless, she delivers rock, folk and Americana with a distinctly Vaudevillian style. Incorporating highly narrative and poetic song writing influenced by an eclectic cast including Leonard Cohen, The Magnetic Fields and Danny Elfman, Catherine Joy is poised to entertain, entrance and inspire with a unique and compelling blend of song and spectacle.
