“Cathryn Beeks is an inspiration as both an artist and promoter, someone who will continue to make a selfless habit of giving more than she often can in order to make San Diego a viable destination for touring bands.”
— San Diego Troubadour - cover story
““For Cathryn, it's all about presenting the songs to the audience, with the least amount of interference, and she gives more people a chance to play in front of an audience in San Diego than anyone else I've known.””
— Sven-Erik Seaholm
"Cathryn has done more to promote the local music scene in the past years through Listen Local than just about anyone else in recent memory. She's made the world a little smaller by way of her astounding ability to befriend, consolidate, and cross-pollinate disparate factions in the local scene."
— San Diego Troubadour, Simeon Flick
