A multi-talented performer who writes and sings from the core of her very being.
Recipient of the 2008 Diane London Award; (Fredericton, NB), a NB Oscar for Autism (for her co-written song I’m In Here); she has performed at the ECMA Awards and been a finalist for the CBC Galaxie of Rising Stars Showcase.
More recently, Cathy opened for Canada’s First Lady of Country Music, Carroll Baker, at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB, and was invited back on stage to sing the closing song with Carroll. She has also performed at numerous theatres and fundraising events throughout the Maritimes including the Playhouse in Fredericton, and the Atlantic National Exhibition.
Cathy’s first CD “Not Goin’ Back” was recorded in Nashville, backed by stellar musicians such as Mike Brignardello (Jake Owen, Gretchen Wilson, Faith Hill) Pat Buchanan (Hall & Oats, Dixie Chicks, Don Henley), and Lonnie Wilson (Brooks and Dunn, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw).
Her latest CD, entitled “Free Wheelin’”, engineered and produced by Paul Milner (Eddy Grant, Keith Richards, Matt Andersen, Glass Tiger) features Geoff Arsenault on drums ( Dutch Mason, Matt Andersen) and Chris Corrigan on lead guitar; (Rita MacNeil, Matt Minglewood). This recording pays homage to the blues and classic rock music that Cathy loves so much. It is an unforgettable collection of 10 originals and one cover song that are both a testament to joy and the resilience of the human spirit.
