Biographie de Cate Le Bon

Cate Le Bon is a singer-songwriter from Penboyr, Wales and now based in Cardiff, Wales, who sings in both English and Welsh.

She first gained public attention when she supported Gruff Rhys (of the Super Furry Animals) on his 2007 solo UK tour. She has since played Glastonbury, Latitude and the Green Man Festival. She appeared as a guest vocalist on Neon Neon’s 2008 single "I Lust U" (from their album Stainless Style ).

Her first official release was a Welsh-language EP, Edrych yn Llygaid Ceffyl Benthyg ("Looking in the Eyes of a Borrowed Horse", similar to the English expression "to look a gift horse in the mouth"), on Peski Records in 2008.[2] She also self-released the double A-side debut single "No One Can Drag Me Down / Disappear" (described by Gruff Rhys as “Bobbie Gentry and Nico fight over a Casio keyboard; melody wins!”) on her website. Le Bon worked alongside Gorky's Zygotic Mynci’s Megan Childs, who contributed violin, and Super Furry Animals and Thrills collaborator John Thomas, who added pedal steel.[3]

Her debut album, Me Oh My (previously known by the working title Pet Deaths ), was released in 2009.

In 2011, Lex Records artist Boom Bip featured Cate's voice on the track "Do as I Do" on the "Zig Zaj" release.
