CATHY JAIN

Bio//

At just 18 years old, Cathy Jain has been described in the music press as a “prodigious young talent” and “an artist destined for incredible things”. In their “Radar” feature, NME described her as “the coolest kid you know”.

Cathy’s first release “cool kid” (Yala! Records) showed that she possessed the voice and song craft of an artist on the cusp of a global breakthrough. It’s a hazy, sun-kissed daydream of R&B-tinged alt-pop that showcases her unique sound while echoing the modernist pop of Billie Eilish, the production flair of Frank Ocean’s more soothing moments, and Lana Del Rey’s nostalgia for the recent past.

“cool kid” was the BBC Introducing Single of the Week receiving plays from internationally renowned DJs across BBC Radio 1. It was Clash Magazine’s Track of the Day and was placed on many high-profile streaming playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, NME’s Best New Tracks and Apple Music’s Alt Pop Playlist.

Cathy was in the top 5 out of more than 10,000 entries in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge talent search and performed an amazing and exceptionally well-received set on the Lavish Lounge stage at the Latitude Music Festival in Suffolk. This has been followed by regular festival gigs and tour support for the likes of Cassia and Yard Act. Appearances at Abbie McCarthy's Future Karma, DIY Magazine's Hello 2023 and DHP's Intro23, along with the release of her two EPs "artificial" and "SPACEGIRL", have seen Cathy Jain become one of the most talked about up-and-coming artists of 2023.

Cathy’s skilled songwriting deftly captures the insecurities and uncertainties that people of her age feel, while simultaneously celebrating the feelings of confidence and hope that come as they learn more about who they are. Identity is a strong theme in Cathy's lyrics, partly due to her mixed cultural heritage (Chinese-British), which also sees her using traditional Chinese instruments in innovative ways in her music. Her observations of how people behave toward each other and how they see themselves in their private moments are expressed with authenticity, passion and tenderness, all the while retaining an uber-cool, chill vibe that will have you entranced from the first note.
