Catherine was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and grew up in Sunnyvale, California. At the age of 9 playing and writing music on the guitar and piano soon became one of her favorite pastimes. Being self-taught, Catherine has developed a love for playing guitar, singing, playing keyboards and writing music.
When Catherine was in her 20's, she began performing in clubs throughout the Bay Area as a lead singer/guitarist & songwriter. Although she loved playing in a band, Catherine wanted to explore other styles of music and decided to give the hard-rock scene a break to complete her college education.
It wasn't until the fall of 2006 that Catherine was able to dedicate more time to her music and she took the idea of recording a solo album more seriously. Then, almost exactly one year from the day she started, Catherine released her CD, Paradise Swamp.
Since Catherine's release of Paradise Swamp in November of 2007, the accolades have continued streaming in. Because of her unique style and abilities as a musician, Catherine's music is now being played on many internet radio shows and stations throughout the world. She has been selected as a featured artist on websites & radio stations and was featured in April 2008's issue of 20th Century Guitar magazine and was "Musician of the Month" for AbstractLogix.com and GuitarPlayerZen.com . Currently, Catherine is working on a number of recording projects both for herself and other recording artists.
Although Catherine writes music in a number of different genres, her love for playing guitar and has evolved mainly into a unique style of progressive rock and fusion which is evident in many of her compositions. Currently, however, Catherine is working on a number of contemporary compositions and progressive rock compositions which should be available on the audio player within a few short weeks.
