you can get my Be Inspired @ nysubwaygirl t-shirt by stopping by any of my subway gigs, I always list where I play on my site. http://www.nycsubwaygirl.com/location/wh...

Q

I love your site, Cathy! And my proximity to you just increased by one. I am sure I have seen you in the subways...but now I just learned you play with my collaborator's husband- Jeff Arp-Sandel. xo S

Hope to see you in the subway.

Q

How would you describe your style?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 09/07/2010
A

Folked-up Blues, filled with my conscious need for lyrics that express emotion and challenging situations through melody, rhythm and groove.

Q

Who or what are your major influences?


Cathy Grier Blues+Grooves responded on 09/07/2010
A

Since you didn't say in what area...music? life? world events? I have many influences on all of these levels. Musically speaking influences range from Richie Havens to Doris Day with a little Beck and Bonnie Raitt mixed in.

I'm influenced by right action and those that move beyond the norm to witness, and share and correct through educating us on what they discover and reveal to us about ourselves and our challenging world. Like Eve Ensler,

I'm influenced by nature, by the changing of the seasons. I'm influenced by the love I give and receive from my family and friends.

Q

what do YOU like best about subway/street musicians?

NYC Subway Girl is about positive energy through music in public spaces, do you have a story to share? Inspiring? Funny? Compelling? Sh

first let me add that I can tell when a subway/street musician is comfortable in the "venue". So I speak from that perspective when I say what I like best is the "conversation" that occurs between performer and audience, an instantaneous and moving experience.
