At the age of 5, and thanks largely to her parents love for music, Catalina began her life-long romance with singing. With her early childhood being influenced by the sounds of Motown, Aretha Franklin, Barry White, Michael Jackson and Madonna it's no surprise that by the time she turned 12 she had begun writing her own music. She picked up the guitar and began laying the foundation for a music career that would push the limits of her genre and expand her realm of possibilities. Today her musical palette is virtually limitless, drawing inspiration from empowering females artists like Adele, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé, all the way to indie bands like Young The Giant, Manchester Orchestra, HAIM, and Alabama Shakes, by way of Latin artists like Natalia Lafourcade, Carla Morisson, and fellow Chilean, Mon Laferte.
Catalina uses her powerhouse vocals and wildly talented backing band to intertwine her passion for genre-bending music with her inspirations that remain rooted in soulful Pop/RnB with a hint of Latina flare to remind her of home. She blends these different tonalities together in a way that uniquely emphasizes her versatility and musicianship.
