Since beginning to put out blissful alt-pop melodies from her bedroom in 2020, Cathy Jain has impressed music lovers with her honeyed, multi-layered vocals, beautifully-realised melodic progressions and captivating instrumentation.
At just 16 years old, Cathy has been described in the music press as a “prodigious young talent” and “one to watch in 2021”. Born in Salford but brought up in China and Australia before returning to the UK 4 years ago, her music also reflects her international experience. Writing and recording from her home in Cheshire, she has collaborated throughout the lockdown with producers in such exotic and far-flung places as Goa, Montreal, Paris and Guildford. Cathy’s three 2020 releases received much acclaim from the music industry and have received frequent plays on BBC Introducing on Radio 1 and Radio Stoke. Other achievements include a top ten spot in the UK Songwriting Academy 2020 competition, a place in the 2019 Teen Star final and (twice) winner of the Cheshire East Young Musician of the Year.
