about

"get set GO!" is the first four track solo EP from Cate Ferris, a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter based in Brighton, UK.

Review:
As a reader of Brighton Noise, you probably enjoy nothing more than spending your nights out across the city seeking the best sounds to consume. If that’s the case, then you may already be familiar with the work of singer-songwriter Cate Ferris. Having gigged across her hometown’s musical hot spots such as The Blind Tiger, The Brunswick and Latest Music Bar (to name just a few), Ferris’ voice has already made its mark in the lives of many local live music lovers. Now, after years of winning over crowds with her soothing voice, she finally releases her first solo studio EP.

Produced by Tim Bidwell (Kate Walsh, Peggy Sue) and independently released via Bandcamp and physically available on CD also, ‘deep breath ready get set GO!’ boasts four whimsical songs which will warm your heart. Opening with the slow and relaxing ‘Leave A Light On‘, the EP begins with a wistful vibe before building up into the more uptempo ‘Trapeze‘ which concurs up playful circus imagery. ‘Condensation‘ then challenges listeners’ expectations by combining both the sedate and the chaotic; beginning somewhat somber, the song soon transforms into a faster-paced score peppered with nods to jazz and surprisingly transgresses into the ethereal for a brief moment. Somehow however, Ferris manages to hybrid the atmospheres with ease without ever sounding confused or directionless. Closing the debut is ‘Doll On The Music Box‘ which showcases Ferris incorporating a güiro, a triangle and music from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to create a mature lullaby that maintains the innocence of childhood.

Throughout the four-track release, Ferris continues to impress with her all-round musicianship but there’s no doubt that the finest instrument that she has mastered is her voice – often haunting, undeniably charming and always enjoyable.

Track Name: Leave a light on
dark circles underneath your eyes,
can't walk but growing wings to fly,
and it will be like love - it will be like love

all this stuff you can leave behind,
no careworn looks or worried sighs,
and it will feel like love, it will be like love

And i will will leave a light on

And all of the words that we think that we need to say
are written in the ghost of your smile
so just blow me a kiss when your mouth is dry
there's no need for goodbye

I will always leave a light on

And even though its sad, not to be in your company
I'm just glad of that time in your company
That's why i will always leave a light on
