Country-pop’s newest rising star Catherine McGrath has released her new single ‘Starting From Now’ via Warner Bros. Records.
Showcasing a more upbeat side to her music, following her acclaimed acoustic-only debut EP One at the end of 2016, the new single features Catherine with a full production including electro-acoustic guitars, stomping beats, ukuleles and a huge pop chorus, demonstrates the huge crossover potential she has alongside her much-loved country flair.
On its release last Friday, ‘Starting From Now’ was added straight onto Spotify’s UK New Music Friday playlist as well as seeing Catherine picked as Apple Music’s ‘New Artist Of The Week’ this week who tipped her as “A new heiress to the Taylor throne”.
Catherine has come a long way since moving to London from her hometown in Northern Ireland. Last week she was dubbed as “one of the brightest emerging talents in country music” by Music Week. She has also delved into the live music scene playing numerous shows in the capital, including support for Una Healy from The Saturdays for two special shows in London and Dublin. Catherine will be joining Una again on May 14th for a show at London’s Bush Hall.
Now writing with top class songsmiths in the UK and Nashville, Catherine’s beautiful sound is capturing the hearts of young country and pop fans across the country.
