“Her sugar-syrup vocals and rolling finger-picked guitar melodies made us sigh deeply before breathing in the fresh air of new music that comes without pretense or one-uppery.”

Rosie Catalano is a singer-songwriter whose lyrics balance bittersweet nostalgia with playful humour to create vivid, cinematic songs.
Armed with clever lyrics, a steel-string guitar, and a rich, multifaceted voice, Rosie presents songs that are written with an emphasis on narrative and character, providing a colourful and engaging quality to her music.
A regular on the Sydney folk scene, Rosie has shared the stage with Georgia Fair, Leroy Lee and The Falls, and is an avid supporter of the city’s grassroots venues that have thrived in recent years.
In ’09, Rosie won a song competition offered by indie-pop darlings, Little Birdy. The result was a collaboration with the band on an original song ‘Where Did I Go Wrong?’. Rosie quickly went on to nab herself the coveted ‘Album of the Week’ slot on ABC Radio National, garnering a slew of high rotation radioplay across the country, as well as securing herself as a finalist for APRA’s Professional Development Award in 2011, the MusicOz Award in 2013 and winning Triple J Unearthed in 2014.
