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. 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, HAIM, and Alabama Shakes, by way of Latin artists like Natalia Lafourcade, Carla Morisson, and fellow Chilean, Mon Laferte.
Catalina uses her powerhouse vocals & wildly talented backing band to intertwine her passion for genre-bending music rooted in soulful Pop/RnB with a hint of Latina flare to remind her of home. She blends these together in a way that uniquely emphasizes her versatility and musicianship. The honesty of her music and lyrics is hard to miss. When she takes the stage Catalina bares her soul to all who will accept it; her playful eye-contact, expressive face, and ferocious dance moves leaving nothing unsaid.
