Catherine Joy Parke...... singer, songwriter, fiddle player, and guitar player galore!!! Born and raised in the Live Music Capital of the World, this native Texan is making her name in the Texas music scene.
After picking up the violin at the age of eight, Catherine knew she'd found her calling. For the next ten years she played as often and with as many people as she could. From orchestras to fiddle groups, and musical theatre performances to mariachi clubs, Catherine's done it all.
During her junior year of high school, Catherine joined the Austin Girl's Choir where she discovered her second calling - all things singing. After a few years of pure classical singing, Catherine joined a jazz & blues band and started gigging around town.
After two years of attendance at the University of Texas at Austin, Catherine decided to apply for transfer to her dream school - Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. She was accepted and enrolled the next fall.
Now, back home in Austin for the time being, Catherine is pursuing a life of full-time musicianship. She's been playing with a few stellar musicians around town and is looking forward to more and more gigs and musical connections!
Catch Catherine at one of her many shows around the state and you won't be disappointed :)
