Our next Ones To Watch 2022 is rising south London singer-songwriter, Cat Burns. The 20 year old Brit School alumni and Compass-featured artist received her first big break during the first lockdown when her covers and original songs struck a chord with audiences on TikTok. Since then, Cat has amassed over 800k TikTok followers, and her frank, conversational music has found admirers at Radio 1 (Clara Amfo, Arlo Parks and Olly Alexander), Notion, gal-dem, GRM Daily, Clash and many more. The NME chose Cat as one of its 100 Essential Artists of 2021 and MTV picked her for its MTV Push UK & Ireland 2022. At streaming, her music has featured across editorial playlists at Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. Last year, Cat made her TV music debut on the Russell Howard Hour show. This intimate, honest and soul-led song, laden with warm piano melodies and gospel tinges perfectly captures, for us, the natural talent of Cat and showcases why we are making her one of our Ones To Watch 2022.
