Cathi Walkup

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 new book, “The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide”.

Her “smoked cheddar alto” can take the knots right out of your neck, or she can rip through a vocalese number and energize the entire room. Being an accomplished lyricist herself she highly values the written word and delivers the story from the heart, giving fresh meaning to words you may have heard a thousand times.
