Catherine Russell comes from a musically influential New York family, boasting a rich heritage with her father, Luis Russell, serving as Louis Armstrong's musical director, and her mother, Carline Ray, a pioneering vocalist and instrumentalist. Catherine's impressive career features collaborations with music icons like David Bowie, Paul Simon, and Rosanne Cash, contributing to over 200 albums. 

Her debut album, 'Cat,' launched in 2006, was followed by seven chart-topping, critically acclaimed albums. Her seventh album, 'Alone Together,' topped the Jazz Week 2019 Year End Chart and earned a Grammy nomination, followed by, 'Send For Me' in 2022, and 'My Ideal' in 2024.

She contributed to the Grammy-winning 'Boardwalk Empire' soundtrack. Her 2016 album 'Harlem On My Mind' received a Grammy nomination, and she's been spotlighted on PBS-TV and NPR's Fresh Air. 

A legend hiding in plain sight. With an astonishingly rich, multifaceted voice, that can swing, lilt, belt, and sweetly croon with equal ease.
