Cat Ridgeway, a singer/songwriter hailing from Orlando, Florida, is a skilled lyricist and melodist. Cat’s eclectic style shines through her ability to play guitar and harmonica (at the same time!), trumpet, trombone, drums, piano, and bass. Cat has worked with several notable producers, including Greg Rike (producer of Deep Purple and The Back Street Boys) and most recently, Ben Cooper (co-writer of Ricky Skaggs’ Grammy award winning album “Mosaic”). Cat's most recent project "Passenger Seat" is a direct result of her overfunded Kickstarter campaign "Cat Goes to Nashville". She had the privilege of working with the likes of Gordon Kennedy (co-writer of "Change the World" recorded by Eric Clapton) and many other seasoned Nashville players on the EP.
Although it ultimately didn't make the final cut, Cat's debut album "On a Windy Day" features the title track originally written for the major motion picture, “Bernie” starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey. Cat has lent her voice to many notable causes including Tunes for Tots, Make A Wish Foundation, and Hospice of the Comforter. She is also highly sought after by advertising agencies to sing radio jingles and commercials.
Her most recent achievement has been winning indie rock duo Tegan and Sara’s world wide cover contest.
