Biography
-2014-

CATHY LEMONS is a legendary, blues singing firebird out of Dallas, Texas, who has mesmerized audiences with her “velvety and hypnotic voice, resonant of a female Howlin’ Wolf” (Fulltimeblues 2010) for over 25 years. A seasoned and expressive songwriter, Cathy brings profound authenticity to her craft, spinning inspiration from acts of faith, redemption, and love from all sides. Throughout her career, Cathy has proven herself to be a brave, road tested entertainer, who delivers emotional and electrifying performances night after night.

Inspired by the likes of Mavis Staples, Lou Ann Barton, and Bonnie Raitt, Cathy earned her stripes, performing across the Lone Star state. From her early days, Cathy’s natural gifts accorded her the honor of recording with the great American blues guitar player and bandleader, Anson Funderburgh. Soon after that, she was invited to share the stage with six time Grammy Award winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Stevie Ray Vaughan. Cathy’s smoldering vocal stylings and charismatic stage presence landed her a gig, touring as John Lee Hooker’s send off singer in 1987. Over the years, Cathy has collaborated with many great names in blues, such as Tommy Castro, Steve Freund (Sunnyland Slim, Koko Taylor), David Maxwell (Bonnie Raitt), Kid Andersen, and more.



To date, Cathy Lemons has released five studio albums, two of which are on the national label, Vizztone ("Lemonace" & "Black Crow"). Her critically acclaimed “Black Crow” was nominated for a “Welcome Back” Jimi Award from Blues411. The album made the 2014 Downbeat “Winners Pick” and was featured in Blues Matters’ “Top 10 Albums” in the U.K. She formed in 2014 The Lucky Losers with singing partner Phil Berkowitz and has produced with Kid Andersen two "Top 10" chart topping blues albums since then that were also nominated for three Blues 411 Jimi Awards.
