Catie Curtis Touring In Support Of Long Night Moon
Published October 26, 2006

Catie Curtis is heading out on a U.S. tour in support of her new album, Long Night Moon. Described as her most personal effort to date, Long Night Moon is an intricate work of stripped-down modern folk.

Long Night Moon features the track "People Look Around," for which Curtis - along with co-writer Mark Erelli - was honored with the Grand Prize in this year's International Songwriting Competition (out of 15,000 entries from 82 countries). "People Look Around" addresses the human toll and the divisive political landscape that arose in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Produced by Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Mark Erelli, Alastair Moock), Curtis focused on simple arrangements for Long Night Moon, using strings and vintage instruments to create soundscapes with an often hushed quality that never overwhelms her sweet, strong voice. Recorded over several months, the songs on this record have a raw and organic quality that reflects Curtis' live performance style. Curtis is joined by guitarists Kevin Barry (Paula Cole), Mark Erelli and John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter), bassist Mike Rivard (Jonatha Brooke), and drummer John Sands (Aimee Mann). Mary Chapin Carpenter makes a special appearance on the track "Water and Stone."

Curtis' richly textured voice continues to shine on this new body of work which addresses themes of waiting, questioning, reconnecting. The songs on Long Night Moon were written at the time when Curtis first became a parent. "Becoming a parent has made me more aware of and invested in the world my children will inherit," she says.
