Cat Martin is a professional songwriter and vocalist with releases on EMI Music, Armada, Black Hole Recordings, Future Sound of Egypt, Sony, and many more top labels. To date, she has enjoyed two Beatport #1s (Trance & all genre Releases Chart), several Beatport Top 10 (Trance) releases and three Beatport Top 40 (all genres) placements. Drawing influences from Imogen Heap, Tori Amos and Jewel, she began her musical career as a singer-songwriter playing extensively throughout the Northern Irish acoustic scene. In 2009, an online meeting with EDM producer Dave Graham led to the release of her debut trance single on Armin van Buuren's leading Armada Music label.
'Dave Graham featuring Cat Martin – Love Always Fades' received support from all corners of the globe, staying firmly cemented in the top 10 Trance download charts for a number of weeks. The track was nominated Tune of the Week by Armada and has appeared in numerous compilation albums, also featuring on Armin van Buuren's "In the Mix" Nintendo Wii game.
Since Cat's arrival on to the international dance music scene, she has collaborated with some of the industry's most exciting producers, including Blackmill, Activa, Dimension, Ad Brown, Thomas Datt, Joni Ljungqvist, Jason van Wyk, and Robert Nickson. Support for her music reads like a "who's who" of the electronic genre with Radio One DJs, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, Aly & Fila, Paul Oakenfold, and countless other DJs showcasing her work on weekly radioshows and in live sets.
Although working mainly within the trance genre, she has enjoyed Beatport (Releases Chart) #1 success with "Sadness", a Dubstep collaboration with Arkasia and achieved over 1 million YouTube views on "Don't Let Me Down" with DnB producer, Blackmill. Her work as a producer has led to several bestselling sample packs under the Martin Sampleware brand and synchronisation deals across the globe.
