Tenor and soprano saxophonist, improviser and composer Catherine Sikora was first electrified by the
sound of air vibrating in a metal tube when, as a child, she heard the wind playing tones and overtones
in a metal gate. She has devoted her life to researching the magic of that sound with her saxophones,
particularly in her solo work, which forms the main backbone of her creative output.
Catherine’s first solo album ‘Jersey’ was released on Relative Pitch Records in July 2016. She followed this
with “Warrior”, an all-soprano saxophone solo recording in 2019. Her next solo tenor recording, recorded
live in Paris in summer of 2020, will be released in fall 2020.
In addition to her solo work, Sikora works frequently in duo and larger settings, with Eric Mingus, Brian
Chase, Ethan Winogrand, Ross Hammond, Christopher Culpo and Matteo Liberatore
