Catie Waters is a Latin American Jazz/Soul Singer, Songwriter, Musician from Dallas, Texas

The music of Dallas-based singer/songwriter Catie Waters has been described as a unique blend of jazz and soul, with rich undertones of R&B and funk grooves. Undoubtedly unique and unwavering in her commitment to her artistic vision, there is an intellect and maturity that penetrates through her music. Appealing to multiple genres, Catie knows exactly who she is as an artist. Dark, enchanting, soulful and haunting, Catie’s original music and lyrics are derived from early life experiences that inspired introspection and accelerated maturity, fostering the gifted mind of a uniquely talented artist. Billie Holiday and Marvin Gaye are among Catie’s first musical idols, with influences also coming from artists such as Amy Winehouse, Jamie Cullum, Erykah Badu, Adele, and Robert Glasper. Growing up in a small town in Northern Arkansas before moving to the cosmopolitan city of Dallas has enabled her to observe different societal views and values that have added perspective to her vast knowledge of cultural history. The majority of Catie’s childhood was spent immersing herself in books, having read as many as 300 titles in one year’s time. She is particularly fascinated with the Civil Rights Movement and the Freedom Riders. Catie admires people of courage and those that have overcome strife and oppression in their lives. Two of Catie’s favorite quotes: •“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” -Ernest Hemingway •“Do not write so that you can be understood, write so that you cannot be misunderstood.” -Epictetus With a clear vision and commitment driving her to succeed, Catie Waters is the complete package as an artist. With her youthful energy and passion, her goal is to bring Jazz to the forefront as a popular genre. Catie aspires to write organic songs with tremendous depth that will inspire listeners to empower change. Catie is no stranger to the stage; having already performed at venues such as House of Blues in Dallas, The NAMM Show in Anaheim, and The Bitter End in New York City, as well as being featured on KNON 89.3 Despierta Dallas. Sought after by multiple producers in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas, Catie chose to collaborate in the Fall of 2012 with the talented Producer/Musician, Caleb Sean, who co-produced Beyonce’s “Best Thing I Never Had.” With the participation of many amazing musicians, Catie recorded her first album with all live instrumentation to bring her organic vision to life. Catie Waters’ debut album, Stone Child, is scheduled to be released in early 2013. This is only the beginning for this emerging artist!
