The Apple EP Press Release

The Apple Reviews

"This is atmospheric in the mode of Fiona Apple which given its name may have been the intention – definitely a nice Kate Bush ring to it too. Given these influences it has obvious appeal for those into classic quirky pop. The song builds to an inevitable crescendo which showcases a strong chorus that could have the marketing men knocking at Cathryn’s door. This is a neat introduction to Cathryn’s work that reveals bags of potential."
Kevin Hugger

"There is always something refreshing about hearing somebody from my home country moving overseas and making a name for themselves - especially in the UK circuits where it is rather difficult to break through into that scene. Really feeling a Regina Spektor to your voice coupled with that faint South African accent that gives it a very moody feel. This coupled with the fast-paced and upbeat instrumentals makes for an incredibly powerful performance."
Craig Roxburgh

"Thank you for sending me your song. First of all, I love your voice ! Your song is great too. I have nothing to say except that I have enjoyed listening to it and that I gonna check out some of your other songs. You're on my top 3 of the songs I have appreciated the most among all the songs people sent me through Fluence."

First Cuts

"On 'Can You Understand?', from her first commercially-released CD, Dublin-based Cathryn Green comes over like an assured cross between Lisa Hannigan and Sinead O'Connor.  It's strongly melodic with literate lyrics.  The stirring arrangement incorporates deft strings and a riveting vocal from Green....The piano-driven 'Dreams We Chose To Hide' is a tasty mid-tempo workout that shifts into a staccato interlude and it has trademark Enyaesque plinky bits too.  'I Wonder' also opens with piano, but it benefits from a less-produced, more natural approach that allows the natural charm of Green's voice to seep through.  This is so good we could soon be claiming her as one of our own."
