I would love to be back in Toronto. Too cold to play in subways for me now. Any chance you know of any booking agents? How about a series of house concerts. If you have any friends who'd like to do that it would be awesome.

Q

Hi Cathy,
Do people reconize you from your MTV Basement Tapes Video,and winning that contest?

A

funny you should ask, I don't think so as it was a LONG time ago. haha, and I guess the '80's look, the dyed and angled hair, the Adam Ant makeup and big jacket with padded shoulders and of course obligatory stretch pants wouldn't make me recognizable in the subway. Those were the days. The sound is back now proving everything old is new again.

Q

Q

I'm listening to you on Pandora! How did that happen?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 11/01/2011

Dear Anonymous (Shakespeare?), As my high school yearbook quote said "nothing happens unless first a dream." RE my music on Pandora, I first dreamt it, then I figured out how to make it happen. That's the reality of the music biz, or what's left of it. You got to DIY. Do it yourself. thanks for asking. Hope you like it.

Q

Is there an outside chance you will play at the Austerlitz Exit of the Taconic Parkway? Bob

Maybe in front of the veggie stand, although the weather is yucky maybe wait until Spring!

Q

Can musicians inspire a generation to revolt in the streets?
Occupy their hearts and minds!

Great question. I do believe music has the power to move people positively. I have tried to use my music as a means to soothe but also as a tool to express my feelings that we could do better. I would rather see a revolution sparked by music than by bombs. Peace, Cathy
