Lee's voice was distinctive, understated but full of subtlety with a breathy tone that became her trademark, significantly enhanced by her liking for cigarettes!

She made over 50 albums covering many different styles of music giving them all her unique treatment, however, she had an innate blues style and Peggy’s Got the Blues celebrates that style. With Peggy Lee trademark hits such as Fever, Black Coffee and Is That All There is? this show also embraces some of Lee’s lesser-known repertoire.

Catherine is a charismatic and entertaining performer, with a warm expressive tone which she uses to create moods from sultry to joyous drawing on influences such as Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, Patricia Barber and Barbra Streisand.

I listened to her version of "The Folks Who Live On The Hill" and it's really lovely. Not at all an imitation but her quiet delivery captures the essence of Peggy Lee.
