Cathy Battistessa was born and grew up in England to an Italian father and an English mother. A high-regarded painter and an award-winning recording artist, her two great loves have always been music and art.
Hailed as the voice of the Café del Mar, Cathy is one of the original co-founders and co-creators of the balearic dance movement. Cathy emerged during Ibiza’s most musically innovative era where she wrote and performed many of the revered timeless Ibiza classic songs.
Now based deep in the heart of the Devonshire countryside near the sea, Cathy is an active performer, writer and artist. Currently she is finishing the album she always wanted to make: big songs sharing life experiences.
