Catherine Elms is a dark pop singer-songwriter with a soft yet powerful voice; introspective and fierce in equal measure. Drawing on the raw, heartfelt emotion of Tori Amos and the brash power of PJ Harvey, Catherine has found an evocative and cathartic style that is all her own. A self-taught pianist with heavy rock sensibilities, Catherine creates an epic and transcendent sound that explores millennial frustrations with sensitivity and quiet hope. Catherine self-released her debut album, ‘I Have Seen It, I Do Not Fear It’, in November 2022, and promoted the album with a UK tour in spring 2023.
More about Catherine
When Catherine isn’t making music, she loves running, watching sci-fi and horror films, nights out, and getting tattoos. She is a proud parent of three lovely dogs (Parker, Bundy, and Ollie). She also loves boardgames, loaded fries, bubble tea, cosy blankets, trying new vegan recipes, watching so-bad-it’s-good films, and silly puns. Catherine pretends to be a serious artist, but is actually kind of a goof in real life. One of the things she’s most proud of is her ability to perfectly boil a soft-boiled egg.
