CAT REA

Originally from Middlesbrough, Cat started singing backing vocals for local artists and churches at 12 years old. She grew up around lots of live music, and adored writing and singing from an extremely early age. After finishing music college at 17, Cat started gigging, taking musical inspiration from Whitney Houston, Sia, Lauryn Hill, and Sting.

Cat was signed to various dance labels, including a deal with Hedkandi that included an album feature. After that, she worked as a session singer, and over her long career racked up performances at North East Live, gigs with The James Arthur Project, the American Gospel Tour, television adverts and corporate events. 

On top of all this, Cat managed to write, record and release two pop albums. But her favorite performance was a Nashville gospel choir performance for 800 homeless men — a moment that marked her with the drive to bring hope and encouragement to anyone who hears her voice.
