Catriona Sturton

Presented by Encore Ottawa

Big heart, big lungs. Sings like an angel, plays like a beast. Rock-and-roll lover of Heavenly and the heaviest blues. One woman, harmonica-driven band. After learning to file harmonica reeds in a back alley, Catriona became the bassist for Halifax teen-rockers Plumtree (inspired the cult-favourite book and movie, Scott Pilgrim, with their song of the same name). Multi-instrumentalist who plays harmonica, violin, guitar and bass (often at the same time). Her biggest claim to fame might be that she “May have written the best song to date about butt-dialing — “Calling From My Pants” – Critics Pick, Nashville Scene.
