Top Tip of the Week: Cat Dowling

leave a comment »


Cat Dowling is a folk/alternative singer-songwriter from Dublin, Ireland, whose music has been described as inspirational, vulnerable and disarmingly sexy.

Dowling was the lead vocalist and main songwriter with Irish electro band Alphastates, before striking out on her own when the group disbanded in 2010. Dowling has an air of the Aimee Mann about her; her debut single ‘Come On’ (released April 19th, 2013) putting me in mind of the first time that I heard Mann’s equally dark and unapologetically provocative, ‘Pavlov’s Bell’ . Their vocals share a raw, scratchy quality which more than delivers the goods for an empassioned alt-rock performance. The video is also excellent, courtesy of Marc Corrigan (

I look forward to seeing some UK tour dates in 2013.



Dowling’s debut album ‘The Believer’ is set for release on May 3rd, 2013 (UK/Europe), with a date yet to be confirmed for the U.S. /
