The buzz surrounding NY-based songstress Cat Martino is growing by the minute after her critically acclaimed performances on tour with Sufjan Stevens. Martino uses her commanding vocal presence and usage of loop pedals to create mesmerizing melodies. The folkster has collaborated with the aforementioned Stevens as well as fellow singer-songwriter Sharon Von Etten, all of whom seem to be cast from a similar musical mold. Martino is set to release her sophomore effort, Yr Not Alone, which features Sufjan on the gorgeous title track.
