~ JAZZ/BLUES ~ Fresh off the Boat! Vocalist Cat Wells knows how to reach into your soul as if relaying your own heartfelt tragedy with her emotion filled, energetic and impromptu brand of Blues. With her earliest idols being Miss Billie Holiday followed by Etta James and Janis Joplin, it’s not surprising to hear hints of Jazz and Funk thrown in there as well. Her poignant use of phasing and creative manipulation of notes whisk you into a smokey bayou where you experience her own interpretive twist on styles.
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. She has performed from Alaska to Russia and through the Caribbean in venues as small as 30 people and to audiences as large as 10,000.
