Catherine Feeny’s Mr. Blue Video, New Dar and Catie Coming Soon!

A friend just pointed me in Catherine Feeny’s direction, and I’m sure glad he did. His first suggestion was the beautiful I Still Don’t Believe You, but since I’ve still got colors on the brain from being in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (two more weekends of performances to go!) I of course had to check out Mr. Blue. I love the light and playful feeling in both the song and the video – all the balloons make me happy!

You may have already heard Mr. Blue on The OC, Running With Scissors or a documentary on NY guerrilla artist Stuart Ross.

The Philadephia-born singer-songwriter is currently based out of England, but it comes as no surprise to me that Catherine seriously got into songwriting at that place so many of my other favorites got their start these days: The Hotel Cafe.
