Stranger Cat is a musical project from Cat Martino. Though it’s possible you can’t place her name, if you’ve been paying attention to independent music over the past several years you have almost certainly heard Cat Martino’s voice. The Brooklyn native was Sufjan Stevens’ right hand woman for Age of Adz and All Delighted People albums and world tour, recorded/toured with Sharon Van Etten circa Epic, she sings on the new Son Lux record Lanterns, appeared with The Shins on SNL and Williamsburg Park.
