Album Notes
Catherine Tuttle - Singer/Songwriter - Her Debut Album, "PEEL."

Catherine Tuttle graduated from Mount Saint Joseph Academy, near Philadelphia. She's a freshman at Harvard College. She's almost nineteen years old.

And she has written, performed and recorded twelve of the most evocative and intense songs to come out of Philadelphia in years.

Catherine's debut album, "Peel," is a collaboration of remarkable talents working with memorable material:

Jef Lee Johnson, lead guitarist for the project, has toured with Aretha Franklin, recorded with Billy Joel, Chaka Khan, Leon Russell, and Huey Lewis, and played with the David Letterman band.

Chico Huff, on bass, has played with James Taylor, jazz guitarist Pat Martino, singer/songwriter Carly Simon, and Annie Haslam of Renaissance, and provided session tracks on no fewer than a dozen recent albums.

Percussionist Doc Gibbs has toured and/or recorded with George Benson, Nancy Wilson, Bob James, Al Jarreau, Grover Washington, Jr. and Erykah Badu,

Glenn Barratt, Producer and Chief Engineer for "Peel" has contributed his talents to recordings by artists such as Diana Ross, Sister Sledge, Elton John and Sting ("Aida"), and Jill Scott. (Glenn's concise assessment of Catherine's work: "This is going to turn some heads.")

Members of Catherine's string section recently finished work on recordings by Jennifer Lopez and Justin Timberlake.

But what is the music like? "What They Will Find," a signature track, begins with an easy rock'n roll chord progression and rhythm guitars reminiscent of Steely Dan, and then, almost imperceptibly, lands you in the middle of a bridge that samples Beethoven's "Fur Elise" - without ever losing the insistent groove of the song.

Her lyrics - "My tears were like kerosene to your fears," or "I'm mean and you're cruel, both have a problem with rules, but that's nothin' new, let's hear it for the mayhem" - are the work of a thoughtful 17 year old going on 30.

And speaking of lyrics - Catherine is part French Canadian and bilingual. "Ange Tombé," the final track, is a haunting French anthem of doubt and determination, accompanied by powerful strings.

Catherine wrote her songs on piano and laid down her own piano tracks. Those tracks support, and indeed belong with, the virtuoso tracks around her. But music isn't her only art: two of her oil paintings appear in the liner notes.

"Peel" was released on October 24, 2003 and is available at Visit Catherine's website for photos and additional information, at

Don't miss this record. Really. Don't miss this record.



to write a review


shockingly good music for one so young
This woman (girl?) has maturity way, way beyond her years. The voice, the lyrics, the music all work together in a way to demand you come back for more. It's a little bit folky, a little bit rocky, a little bit country, a little bit jazzy, and a whole lot great. If this CD is anything to go by Catherine Tuttle will be around (deservedly)for a long long time. Can't wait to hear what she comes up with next.

Catherine Tuttle is the "next big thing"
This is an incredible collection of songs, once in your CD player, you won't want to take it out. Cat's voice is just beautiful and mesmerizing and like her songs, takes you to a different place. Locals in Philadelphia will be watching this artist closely as she is alrerady gaining momentum here in the city. This CD is a definate must have.

Lisette Brodey

An exceptional debut album sprinkled with brilliant surprises.
Having heard good things about this CD, I was prepared to be impressed, but I was no way near prepared to be ENTIRELY blown away! Even with my favorite CDs, there is usually a song or two I'm not crazy about, not so with this one, I literally like every song Catherine Tuttle wrote and sings! Her versatility, her music-writing ablity,her uncanny self-introspection and ability to interpret the world around with a unique voice, blends into a upbeat, yet soulful body of work. Every time I listen to this CD, I discover something new. It truly is a treasure trove of discovery for the lover of music. Amazing! Listen to the lyrics of songs like "Life in a Bottle." You'll see what I mean!


Thoughtful lyrics, gorgeous vocals
These songs are at once calming and provocative, and Catherine's voice is powerful. There isn't any song on this album that I don't like.

Music critic and artist Marjorie Nouyado

“A stunning combination of jazz rock with eye-catching lyrics.”
Artist Catherine Tuttle is truly a star on the rise; this young artist delivers a brilliant sound combining the creativity Tori Amos with the passion and originality of Joni Mitchell. It’s refreshing to see a new artist that can not only sing but has the unique quality to show raw emotion through her songs. to listen to Catherine Tuttle’s music is to be inspired.

Phil Robinson

Stunning album from multi-talented artist
From the first track to the last I was amazed at the quality of the songs, the strength of the musicianship and the way Catherine Tuttle's voice made each track sound special. Here in England none of my friends had heard of her and all those I have played the album to have said it is a quality album. It's got everything.
