Excitement, pain, lust, fear, joy. They’re all communicated through tone. It’s unconscious. Your surprise voice is like your surprise face, you don’t control it, it just happens.
Cathi is different.
She has total control. Conscious competence. An elite athlete of the vocal world. Other unconscious truths are communicated through subtle tone. Important evolutionary information.
You hear a person’s character in their voice. Cathi’s character is utterly trustworthy. Or not. She can make it so.
She keeps salubrious company. Collaborating with Victoria Beckham and singing for President Clinton. Obviously, she sounds great. But she’s fun to be with. She adds to the vibe (and the camera loves her too).
Hey, it’s a post ‘#me too’ world! And in a world where women read the rules, Cathi’s dulcet tones capture the zeitgeist. She’s authoritative. She says you can change, and you know it’s true. She’s credible. It’s in her cadence.
Cathi is the jazz singer in ‘These Foolish Things’ with Angelica Houston, Lauren Bacall and Terence Stamp. A believable bunch. She’s funny. She opened for Lenny Henry at the State Theatre and shared the stage with Englebert Humperdink (just saying).
You’re on the edge of amused as she’s explains how to succeed in business. You smirk and tremor as that murder mystery lulls you to sleep. It’s good to be scared. She’ll keep you listening, wanting more.
Cathi’s who you’re looking for.
Song-writing and singing credits include:
Cathi has since released a further two solo albums (Souvenirs from Stockholm and Curious Covers for Cool Cats) and performed at most of the major Jazz venues in and around London.
