Cathy Jane is known as a one-woman band with honest and heart-felt originals. The acoustic folk singer-songwriter living in coastal Delaware blends a love of American folk and early country influence with soothing vocals, raw guitar and percussion using a suitcase kick drum.
Growing up on a backroad in rural southwestern Pennsylvania in a place called Scrubgrass Hollow listening to her parents band playing country, folk and gospel music she naturally gravitated to this style while teaching herself to play guitar in her 50's.
It was at church that Cathy Jane found her voice and then helped form two gospel bands in which she sang background and played percussion. Over the course of a decade she traveled to third world countries and Puerto Rico as part of a music ministry. It wasn't until age 58 that Cathy Jane stepped out on her own as a solo artist, writing and performing her originals. In 2018 Cathy Jane released her debut EP titled Back Home. Now at age 63 Cathy Jane is still hard at work writing and performing.
In 2020 Cathy Jane was ready to head back into the studio to record a full length original album but with COVID-19 restrictions stopping her she decided to learn how to record herself at home. In the wake of the pandemic Cathy Jane recorded and released her first single titled Run For Cover then in 2022 released her second single titled This River which was recorded and produced by Rich Johnson.
Cathy Jane is currently working on her third single release and a full length album.
