Cat Shell

How long does it take to fall in love with Cat Shell's voice? Depending upon how open your heart is to melodic, blues-tinged rock 'n' roll, not very long. The gorgeous singer/songwriter is an ace guitar player and a witty lyricist, and she has been a veteran of the local open-mic scene for quite some time. So she's definitely deserving of the kudos starting to follow her now. Just listen to her stellar debut album, Cat's Outta the Bag and you'll understand why music lovers have taken to her sound. She offers up jazzy, bluesy, Southern-dipped jams at all of her performances; what's best about her compositions is that they make you feel good. Regardless of whether it's a sunny morning or a rainy afternoon, Cat has a song that fits the occasion. So if you're looking to enjoy a real artist who cares about her craft this weekend, head to Brass Monkey and you won't be disappointed.
