Local singer-songwriter and activist Cathy Grier plays a mean slide guitar and sings twice as beguilingly as pretty much any American Idol starlet half her age; at her best, "she sounds like a bluesier Carole King." (Time Out NY)
"I just love the song, (Comin' Back To Me) I loved the vulnerability that you had that night in the space and that you were just there, it was you and this guitar telling this very very personal and powerful story…"
-Helga Davis, WNYC + WQXR and NYC commuter - Battle of The Boroughs Manhattan judge
"….a soulful singer and a bluesy guitarist, one part Laura Nyro, one part Bonnie Raitt." -Seth Rogovoy, Berkshire Eagle
"None of your recordings prepared us for the power of your live performance. You filled me to the brim emotionally and your virtuosity on the guitar is thrilling. Your La Vie En Rose had me in tears at the end when you went acapella. You've made my week so much better from having been serenaded by you." -William Russo, Managing Director New York Theatre Workshop
