She is a storyteller in the best sense as the audience willingly hands over their emotions to her care and reward, in her every mood with her. So expressive is her delivery and performance that her ability to move you becomes clear in the first few moments of a song. As you surrender yourself to the inevitable emotions that rise and fall within you she is in complete control and every bit as involved. She's funny, articulate, playful and spontaneous as a performer and when it comes to spilling her own life out before you, completely honest. This she does in song and unique arrangements that magnify her ability to take an old song and completely revisit it and turn it into a "tour de force", new song. Quite simply she is an original in a time when so few are left.Catte currently resides in West Hollywood, California where, nearby, she and her husband own a recording studio for music production. She is a member of ASCAP, SAG, and AFTRA.
CATTE ADAMS / REVIEWS
“Catte can entrance an audience to the point of breathlessness.
“She sings rings around any singer in town....if you're going out to hear live music, you need travel no farther than wherever Catte Adams is singing.
“Catte Adams turned out to be a hot act, tantamount to a sensual experience in song.....this is one singer you want to see again and again”
“ Her command of her vocal instrument matches her command of the audience’s attention and affection.”
“ She exerts her range into the upper staff by some melismatic soaring that is difficult for the best to pull off without being strident. It is however, never wasted here just because she can, a common trap for singers with this amount of skill these days. The effortlessness she brings to each song is evident and most impressive is the varied material in original treatments. If it’s been a while since you’ve had the goosebumps, it’s time to go see Catte Adams. She hits it over the top!”
“ A diminutive redhead with a gigantic voice....
