21 year old singer/songwriter Catey Shaw was born in Virginia Beach where she lived until moving to New York City in 2010 to attend the School Of Visual Arts as a painter.
Catey discovered her natural love and talent for music through her close relationship with her grandfather who was a radio host and songwriter in Syracuse. As a little girl when Catey went to see him sing in clubs he would only play her requests if she stood up on a chair and sang with him which she enthusiastically embraced and projected to the woed audience.
After writing 2 songs on a toy ukulele that was left at her house, her father bought her a real one for her 18th birthday which she still plays to this day in New York City subways stations around the area.
Catey's influences include Billie Holiday, and Bob Marley which is evident in her vocal style and approach to adapting and writing songs on the ukulele.
Catey is a true artist and speaks the languages of both music and visual art with equal passion and many of her songs have been crafted around her own pieces. From her dorm room at SVA Catey studies the great masters of both art and music and crafts her own voice that inspires anyone who hears it.
