Cathy Battistessa is a visionary recording artist and an acclaimed painter and sculptor. Her work is hopeful and soul-bearing, connecting both the visible and invisible threads between art and music.
Widely acknowledged as the Voice of the Café del Mar, she is both author and performer of many timeless chill-out songs featured on compilations worldwide including ‘Oh Home’ (Paco Fernandez & Levitation), ‘Speck of Gold’ & ‘Let It Go’ (Afterlife), ‘Riva’ (Slow Pulse), ‘We The Light’ (James Bright), and ‘Happiness’ (Blank and Jones).
Today Cathy is nearing completion of her first solo album - an album that maps this soul-searching journey from Ibiza to South America. The album she always wanted to make: songs of belonging: songs of big emotions, made larger still by the raw emotion she pours into them.
