British singer songwriter Catherine Howe released her debut album “What A Beautiful Place” in 1971. With easy breezy jazz folk inspired arrangements, Howe’s songs swell with imagery of English countryside, (On a Misty Morning) honesty and independence (It’s Not Likely) and heartbreak (Words Through A Locked Door) with her voice recalling a less primitive Kate Bush. She followed up this release with the 1975 album”Harry” for which the title track received an Ivor Novello Award. After being disillusioned with the record business she retired and went on to receive a degree in History with Religious Studies she has since returned to music playing live shows and releasing the album “English Tale” in 2009. She has also published two books ‘Holyoake’s Journey’ and ‘Halifax 1842’ . The re-issue of “What a Beautiful Place’ can be found through the Numero Group.
