Born in Toronto, Ontario and raised in Toronto’s suburbs, Cat began singing at an early age. In fact her grade one report card boasts “Cathy-Ann loves to sing and entertains us quite frequently”. She has run the gambit on musical styles including Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, Funk, Jazz and finally Blues.
Cat has shared the stage with "the Ray Charles Orchestra", Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne and Harpdog Brown and has opened for ZZ Top, Crash Test Dummies, Jeff Healey, Rita Chiarelli and countless others.
