Western Australian artist Catherine Traicos draws musical influences from a range of genres, including the classical music of her original training, and produces music that while not easily categorised can be classified as music that connects to both the heart and head of the listener. There is thoughtfulness and joy in Traicos’s songs, and the title of her latest EP, Choose Your Own Light, leaves open the possibility that the EP itself may be that light. It also nods to Traicos’s commitment as an artist to leave room for the listener to find themselves in her songs – and there is much to discover on this EP. When we spoke recently we talked about that classical music of the past as well as the creation of the EP in the present. You can watch that chat on YouTube or listen on Soundcloud, or in the Sunburnt Country Music podcast.
