Synopsis

Album Description
With a dedicated fan base across the U.S. and Europe and with help from Mary Chapin Carpenter and an impressive roster of seasoned players, Catie Curtis? latest release, Long Night Moon, is one of the most highly-anticipated releases of 2006 for devotés of the singer-songwriter tradition. With ten years of recordings under her belt, the songs on Long Night Moon speak deftly in the voice of a woman who understands fully the joys and frustrations of adulthood without compromising the wit and gentle spirit that have always characterized her work. Backed by a stellar band including John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter), John Sands (Aimee Mann), Mark Rivard (Morphine, Shawn Colvin), Kevin Barry (Paula Cole, Jonatha Brooke). The CD was produced by Lorne Entress. Featuring: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kris Delmhorst, Mark Erelli, Erin McKeown and Chris Trapper (The Push Stars).

Long Night Moon
L G | Alice Springs, Australia | 01/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I wasn't wrapped in this album. Catie Curtis has a great voice and the production is excellent, but the lyrics and the subject matter were a bit twee. She's obviously rejoicing in life with her kids and all and giving out messages about how great this planet is and how we need to care for it and each other, but listening to this album was a bit like going to a meeting of happy clappers. It didn't work for this Aussie."
Catie lives up to her usual.....

"Catie Curtis lives up to her usual singer songwriter talents in her latest endeavor, Long Night Moon. However, the quality of this album surpasses her other CD's which I would rate at least 4 out of a high 5. Her writing is more mature and insightful and the music more varied. I look forward to the next one and the one following. Catie is a rare gem!"

"I've owned (and not frequently listened to) two earlier albums by Catie Curtis. By chance, I've given this one enough listens to get to know it. And I like what I hear. I'm going to go back and get to know the earlier ones in my collection.

This album reflects both a social conscience of trying to make the world a better place when you leave it than it was when you entered it (Passing Through). It also has considerable sass ("Hey California"), a very musical and whimsical comparison of life in Beantown and life in California (more specifically LA).

The album is well produced, with Ms. Curtis' voice the first instrument, but also has a full "background section" of guitar, bass, drums, etc., limited to times when it is appropriate.

I'm not quite sure whether I'd call this a great "singer/songwriter" album or a great "contemporary folk" album. Either way, it's great.
