Catherine Kelleher is a songwriter, screenwriter and filmmaker based in Sydney, Australia.
In 2007 she graduated from the University of Technology Sydney with a BA in Communications (Media Art and Production).
After a short period in the film industry it was music that soon became the sole focus of Catherine’s creative ambition. After writing and performing all over Australia and the USA in punk band Kiosk, Catherine started the solo pop project Catcall in 2007, and she has been writing and performing under that name ever since.
In 2010 Catherine won the APRA professional development award for contemporary music and has been nominated for several FBI SMAC Awards. After a slew of high profile supports and festival slots she signed to Ivy League Records and Mushroom Music Publishing, releasing her critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Warmest Place’ in 2012.
In 2013 Catherine co-created and co-hosted FBI’s flagship political radio show ‘Backchat’ and also started to forge a career as a screenwriter and producer.
In late 2013 Catherine co-created, co-produced, co-wrote and performed in 8 part web series, The Casuals, which premiered online in early 2014. She spent the second half of 2014 studying screenwriting at the University of California Los Angeles and sketch comedy and improvisation at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade.
Catherine returned to Sydney in early 2015 to focus on directing and writing her first short film, Big Bad World and writing/producing the second series of The Casuals.
