Vocalist Cat Wells is a musical tour-de-force. Born in Toronto, she climbed out of the womb singing and found early heroes in Billie Holiday, Etta James and Janis Joplin. With over 20 years as a seasoned professional vocalist, Cat brings an abundance
of experience to each show. She has a diverse musical style, successfully combining Pop, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, Funk, Jazz and Blues. Amongst her long list of credits, Cat has shared the stage with the Ray Charles Orchestra, ZZ Top, the Crash Test
Dummies and Jeff Healey. She has performed for audiences as large as 10,000 with her blues band “PHAT Betty”, wowed communities as she fronted the 15-piece Funk band “Soul Function” and performed along side the 35 piece Okanagan Symphony Orchestra.
She has performed in venues stretching across North American and Europe and throughout the Caribbean. Her uncanny ability to mimic voices has lead her to give hair raising performances as Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Joan Jett, Stevie Nicks and others.
Although she enjoys fronting a live band, Cat has also compacted her talent in to a one-woman show playing guitar and belting out tunes from every genre and era. Whether it’s an acoustic ballad or a ballsy Pop tune enhanced by tasteful backing tracks,
Cat delivers a wide variety of material sure to please everyone’s tastes. Cat loves to involve her audience and encourages them to look through her song list to request favourites, jump on the mic to sing along and even sit in if they play an instrument.
Throw in a little humour and hand full of audience participation and you’ve got a recipe for a packed house full of happy clientele
