Catie Waters

The music of Dallas-based singer/songwriter Catie Waters has been described as a unique blend of jazz and soul, with rich undertones of R&B and funk grooves. Undoubtedly unique and unwavering in her commitment to her artistic vision, there is an intellect and maturity that penetrates through her music. Appealing to multiple genres, Catie knows exactly who she is as an artist. Dark, enchanting, soulful and haunting, Catie’s original music and lyrics are derived from early life experiences that inspired introspection and accelerated maturity, fostering the gifted mind of a uniquely talented artist. Billie Holiday and Marvin Gaye are among Catie’s first musical idols, with influences also coming from artists such as Amy Winehouse, Jamie Cullum, Erykah Badu and Robert Glasper. Growing up in a small town in Northern Arkansas before moving to the cosmopolitan city of Dallas has enabled her to observe different societal views and values that have added perspective to her vast knowledge of cultural history. The majority of Catie’s childhood was spent immersing herself in books, having read as many as 300 titles in one year’s time. She is particularly fascinated with the Civil Rights Movement and the Freedom Riders. Catie admires people of courage and those that have overcome strife and oppression in their lives.
