Catherine returns to the UK to promote the release of her eagerly awaited new single and album and will also play two concerts at London's Ronnie Scott's...
NEW SINGLE - SOMEBODY TO LOVE (featuring Brian May)
Download single released 30 March 2009 on Swing Café.
Available from iTunes and all download sites (RRP £0.79)
The first single taken from the album 'Gems For Ruby' will be Catherine’s stunning version of ‘Somebody To Love’ and features the legendary guitar mastery of Queen’s Brian May. Says Catherine: “I had worked with Brian May as a backing vocalist on his ‘Back to the Light’ tour & we had remained friends ever since. He’s a true gentleman, a gentle soul as well as somebody who cares not only about music, but about the greater good. He’s an advocate for many causes. I’m just glad he had time for mine!”
'Somebody To Love' video is now live on YouTube - please leave a comment!
NEW ALBUM - GEMS FOR RUBY
CD Album and download released 30 March 2009 on Swing Café.
Catherine Porter’s ‘Gems For Ruby’ is a beautiful new album of classic songs, created with UK producers Danny Saxon (Celine Dion, Luther Vandross, All Saints) & Mark Jaimes (Simply Red, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli). Every track is a lush reworking of the original, allowing Catherine to share these timeless songs with her three-year-old daughter, Ruby. The result is a stylish, laid-back album for every age to enjoy.
