Cate is a 28 year-old singer/songwriter hailing from the borough of Queens, New York City. She's an accountant from 9-5 on weekdays, and all other times, she's a starving artist. Well, she's not exactly starving. But she's an artist. She writes about stuff that makes her think and feel. Cate loves music, period. Growing up with classical piano training from her mother's womb, she started playing around on the piano when she wasn't practicing Mozart Sonatas and taught herself how to play pop music by ear. Heavily influenced by pop artists of the 90's such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Michael W. Smith, but gravitating towards folk artists/bands such as Caedmon's Call and Derek Webb later on in her college years, Cate's music began to take the form of a mixture of all of these different styles. In 2003, she moved to NYC, took a job as an accountant, and started writing songs. After years of honing her vocal and writing skills, she decided finally in 2007, with the nudge (or push, or brute force) of several friends and confidantes, to record a full-length album. That's when she contacted Koo Chung (who she had admired as a tremendous singer/songwriter for years) to produce her full-length album. After a long year of ups and downs, good and bad times, the album (entitled 'Images') was finally finished.
