Born in Evaston, IL, into a musical family, Cat Beach spent most of her
formative years in Charlottesville, VA. After years studying classical
theater and walking an assorted
path she realized her true passion and unyielding desire was to
make music - music that resonates deeply into the crevices of ones soul.
Playing her guitar, writing penetrating lyrics and performing
proved to be a golden path that she could no longer ignore. In 2009 Cat
headed to Los Angeles to record
her first album. She teamed up with some of music industry's
finest top musicians: Lee Sklar, Dean Parks, Herman Matthews and Ned
Albright. Together they created
a beautiful moving and tremendously honest album called Love Me Out Loud.
The spirit of the album has been described as 'warm and strong'.
Her lyrics carry a personal message of her struggles and her surrender.
Her music evokes a classic
soulfulness that transcends genre and generation. Cat's
influences are some of musicâ€™s legends and icons: Carole King, Joni
Mitchell, Carly Simon, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Barbara Streisand.
She is a mentor for children with a passion to share knowledge
and help those who would not otherwise have the opportunity. She has an
unwavering love for her best friend for
almost two decades, her dog Mr. Bugsy Malone. At the end of the
day, she's just a girl with her guitar, writing lyrics from inspiration,
and creating beautiful melodies.
May 2009 marked the release date of Cat Beach's debut album, entitled Love Me Out Loud. Its penetratingly honest ballads and classic rhythms can only be described as magical and authentic.
