Catherine McGrath grew up in Northern Ireland and now lives in London. She has been steadily building her audience throughout the UK and released a debut EP towards the end of 2016. Initially her sound was heavily influenced by Taylor Swift but her new song, ‘Starting From Now’, marks a change: McGrath is developing her own sound and making the most of her impressive pipes. This is upbeat country pop – and upbeat is what’s needed right now (or is it just me?).

‘Starting From Now’ has a great lilting beat that makes it easy to listen to – over and over – and McGrath is clearly an emerging star on the UK country scene.
