Born and raised in Bradford, PA, Catherine grew up in the world of musical theatre, acting professionally since she was 11 years old. Near the end of her 'studies' at Syracuse University's Musical Theatre Department, she somehow managed to pick up the guitar, with only one goal in mind: 'Learn how to play 'Me and Bobby McGee' so I don't have to sing along with Janis anymore.' Learn that song she did, and many others, rather quickly. Now Catherine is living in New York City writing and performing her music at bars and clubs around the big town. Thanks to her musical theatre background, fans say Catherine is always on her mark, giving a knock-out performance every time she hits the stage.
