Whether it’s an intimate acoustic set, a full band set or a club/party freestyling set with select DJ
Cathy’s live shows all feature inspired vocal freestyling and classic Café del Mar songs alongside dance floor hits such as ‘All About Love’ (Knee Deep feat. Cathy Battistessa) and ‘Let It Go’ (as above), plus exclusive mixes of previously unheard tracks from her eagerly awaited first solo album. Cathy’s freestyling live sets are perfect for club appearances, private parties or fashion events and feature infectious vocal melodies sung over a mix of beats, grooves and
textures provided by the DJ. Live programming and sampling with layers of sound fusing great songs with new rhythyms and grooves produces a truly unique live audio performance. They are especially suited to fashion events – inspired by the designer’s concept and tailored to work in harmony with catwalk choreography.
