To state that Catherine A.D. (created Catherine Anne Davies) triggered an immediate effect would be placing it mildly. Getting collaborators like Bernard Butler and Liam Howe or sketching evaluations to such famous British songstresses as PJ Harvey and Kate Bush can be no mean feat. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, chanteuse, and songwriter focusing on a mélange of chamber pop and dark atmospheres, Catherine A.D. 1st hit the picture as an “growing artist in home” at an performers’ collective. Ultimately, she released a debut EP — Carry Your Center — that developed enough of the stir to property the aforementioned creation group of Butler and Howe. The ensuing work, to be produced right into a debut full-length, had been put together by 2009.
