Catherine is a native New Yorker born with an enviable musical pedigree. Her father, the late Luis Russell, was born in Panama and moved to New Orleans and then New York City, becoming a pioneering pianist/bandleader, and Louis Armstrong’s long-time musical director.

After graduating with honors from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she embarked upon a rich journey backing artists like Carrie Smith, Steely Dan, David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, and Rosanne Cash.

She has now come into her own as a lead vocalist. A curator of lesser known blues, jazz and swing tunes, Catherine Russell breathes new life into standards – and “should be” standards.

She has won a prestigious German Record Critics’ Award and a Hot Club of France Discovery Award. Catherine Russell’s third album, Inside This Heart of Mine, reached #1 on JazzWeek, Roots Music Report, and I-Tunes Jazz Charts.
