Four of Cathys Inspirational selections of music were featured on two Windham Hill collaboration albums, along with pieces by Yanni, George Winston, and Jim Brickman.
In her country music days she opened in concert for well known recording artists Toby Keith, and the late Dan Seals. Having traveled to Nashville regularly to learn more about the music business not only as a performer, but as a songwriter, performances there included the world known Bluebird Café.
in the early 2000s, 2 of her original compositions – NAMASTE’ ( I HONOR THEE) and REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE – along with her recording of THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS, and AMAZING GRACE, were placed on 2 separate WINDHAM HILL RECORDS compilation CDs along with pieces by YANNI, GEORGE WINSTON, JIM BRICKMAN, and other great songwriters. These projects were titled CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD – DISC 2 and COMMUNION WITH GOD. They received worldwide distribution, creating an even larger audience for Cathy’s music.
DREAM YOUR EAGLE is a poem which was written by Cathy’s friend, the late, great Dennis Weaver, actor, author, environmentalist, and human being extraordinaire. She wrote music for the poem and included it on her 7th album, ANGELS and EALGES. The song received radio air play in 2008 and was submitted for Grammy nomination consideration for the 51st Annual Grammy Awards. The song did not make the nomination list, yet it was an honor for one of her compositions to get to that level.
Dennis Weaver said about her, ‘Cathy is an angel. Her music speaks to your heart and sings to your soul’.
Neale Donald Walsch author of The Conversations with God books, and friend, also says: The joy, the love, the gentle wisdom, and the deep insight that Cathy and her music bring to a venue produces the miracle called Healing. There is no thank you large enough to embrace the enormity of that gift. Im always humbled and inspired by her.
