Cate Ferris

Whimsical, folk tinged, blues strewn songs of praise for a 21st Century soundscape.

Brighton based singer/songwriter Cate Ferris, using a guitar, keyboard, loop station and drum, is captivating audiences across the South with her solo project, performing magical songs sung with an incredible voice. Folk and dark soul lie at the heart of her sound, and the largely acoustic instrumentation is tinged by hard hitting lyrics and intricate harmonies.

“We fell in love” - BBC Southern Counties

This year, as well as working with ‘Disraeli and the Small Gods’, Cate wrote and recorded a song called Minus 2 Degrees, produced by Nick Manasseh and released by Roots Garden Records, and “Shine” in collaboration with Brighton duo, Nordic Giants.

“Laura Marling, introduced as one of the greatest folk singers of all time, draws the biggest crowd of the weekend… It’s Dizraeli & The Small Gods, however, telling touching, funny stories of riots, atheism, Englishness, through folk, rap, spoken word and hymns, who embody 21st-century folk.”The Independent, August 2011
“Nordic Giants have a sound that appeals to much wider audiences.It’s lush, cinematic and gorgeous.Cate Ferris adds the perfect vocal touch on “Shine”,taking the song on a boundless journey with swells and falls.It moves me every time.” January 2011
