BIOGRAPHYCat Martin is a professional songwriter and vocalist with releases on EMI Music, Armada, Black Hole Recordings, Captured, Discover, and Enhanced Recordings. Drawing influences from Imogen Heap, Tori Amos and Jewel, she began her musical career as a singer-songwriter playing extensively throughout the Northern Irish acoustic scene. In 2008, an online meeting with EDM producer Dave Graham led to a collaboration which was to take her music in an entirely new direction.
In January 2009 Cat released her debut trance single on Armin van Buuren's leading Armada Music label. 'Dave Graham featuring Cat Martin – Love Always Fades' received support from all corners of the globe, staying firmly cemented in the top 10 Trance download charts for a number of weeks. The track was nominated Tune of the Week by Armada and has appeared in numerous compilation albums, also featuring on Armin van Buuren's "In the Mix" Nintendo Wii game.
Since Cat's arrival on to the international dance music scene, she has collaborated with some of the industry's most exciting producers, including Blackmill, Arkasia, Activa, Thomas Datt, Joni Ljungqvist, Jason van Wyk, and Tucandeo. Support for her music reads like a "who's who" of the electronic genre with Radio One, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, Paul Oakenfold and countless other DJs showcasing her work on weekly radioshows and in live sets.
In 2012 Cat released "Sadness", a collaboration with French Dubstep producer, Arkasia, the track appearing on his Beatport #1 album "New Born".
