Lauded as one of the most wonderful and evocative vocalists in Irish contemporary music, Cat Dowling’s beautifully dark pop songs and those husky and achingly intimate vocals will grip you from the outset.
Produced by Gerry Horan with Dowling as co-producer, and mixed by Ger McDonnell (The Cure, U2, Van Morrison, Martha Wainwright, Shane McGowan, Sinead O’Connor), Dowling’s latest output was partially recorded at Crossroads Studio in Kilkenny with support from Ireland’s Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.
In 2013, Dowling debuted with album The Believer, ranked in numerous ‘Best of Year’ music polls, including the Sunday Times. The title track featured in the second season of Banshee, produced by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, American Beauty, True Blood) and the Witches of East End series, featuring Julia Ormond. The song ‘Somebody Else’ was also used in My Name is Emily. Cat has also lent vocals on many collaborative projects, including for ABC’s ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ with Emmy-winning actress Viola Davis.
The full Animals album is available now digitally, as well as on CD and limited-edition cassette.
