Warm, Witty & Wonderful: The Lyrics of Cathi Walkup
Over the course of several years Cathi has written 30 songs and counting... She'll be previewing two sets of them on this gig, from the achingly beautiful "Sail Away", about the journey of life, to "Don't Touch My Biscuit", a Beatles inspired ode to Ole's Waffle Shop, a funky but fabulous diner in Alameda
"Cathi Walkup A hip and funny vocalist, a savvy songwriter with a gift for socially incisive lyrics... with gorgeous tone, bop-ish rhythms, deftly swinging phrasing and artful use of space. "The vocalist conjures up a world lush in ambiance and rich in character." - Donna Kimura, Jazzreview.com
Cathi has been called "the thinking person's jazz singer" for her choice of lyric driven songs, "a natural comedian" for her wit and ease on-stage, and, an "important bop oriented singer" and "also an excellent lyricist" by Scott Yanow, respected jazz writer, in his book, "The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide".
