Acclaimed singer-songwriter Catie Turner has shared inspiring new single, “Easy,” alongside official visualizer. The track was originally teased on TikTok HERE, amassing over 1.1M and counting. “Easy” marks the latest chapter of Catie’s ambitious new project, Comedy & Tragedy, a two-part collection of songs and visuals to be released throughout 2023, with Act 1 due out late spring.
“To be quite frank, this song came from me being depressed and oh-so-high (if there are children reading this, I was high on life and introspection),” says Catie Turner. “I often times feel too much, and even more so I fear being ‘too much’; I want to be easy. The one who only elicits pleasant feelings. Unfortunately, there is no rule book that can teach you how to be easy 100% of the time: it doesn’t exist. I hope you like it, and cue the laugh track, find it EASY to listen to.”
“Easy” follows the release of the deeply introspective (but still upbeat) “Hyperfixations,” which was featured in Rolling Stone’s “Songs You Need To Know” and Ones To Watch’s “Now Watching.”
Comedy & Tragedy: Act 1 and Comedy & Tragedy: Act 2 showcase Turner’s gift for intensely personal songcraft while simultaneously flexing her sonic versatility with a newfound creative edge. At the heart of the project is Catie’s belief in the dichotomy of drama – that truth cannot exist without both comedy and tragedy. Turner takes the theatrically inspired undertaking even further with Comedy & Tragedy: The Musical: The Series, now underway HERE.
Named by PEOPLE as one of “25 Emerging Musical Artists You Should Add to Your Playlist,” Turner will celebrate Comedy & Tragedy with her biggest US live run thus far. Comedy & Tragedy: The Headline Tourgets underway June 3 at Dallas, TX’s Deep Ellum Art Company with stops at New York City’s Mercury Lounge and West Hollywood, CA’s famed Troubadour.
