CATHY RICHARDSON: A childhood obsession with the band Heart caused a young Cathy Richardson to pick up a guitar and start wailing like a banshee and ignited a storybook rock 'n' roll adventure where she found herself inextricably entwined in the music of rock's original queens, Janis Joplin and Grace Slick.
Richardson was writing music and fronting her own band around the Midwest for most of the '90s until being cast as Janis Joplin in the Off Broadway hit musical biopic "Love, Janis."
Richardson channeled the late, great Joplin to rave reviews in Chicago, New York and other cities including San Francisco, where she was invited to sing with Joplin’s original band members in Big Brother and the Holding Co. on a national tour in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.
On that tour, she met the members of Jefferson Starship who quickly recruited her to join their band, where she remains as lead singer today.
And when Jefferson Airplane won their GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, the long-retired Grace Slick insisted that Richardson sing in her place.
Expect a face-melting musical journey as Richardson wraps her considerable chops around songs by Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, the Pretenders, Pat Benatar and more, weaving in her own personal stories and songs.
KATIE TODD: Lauded by iTunes.com as having one of the “top buzz bands in the country,” Katie Todd claimed a spot as the website’s “Artist of the Week,” earning over 300,000 downloads for the single, “Face Down.” Katie has shared the stage with Jewel, Kenny Loggins, The Wallflowers and Pete Yorn, and has performed in front of packed audiences at venues and festivals such as House of Blues and Lollapalooza. Many of her songs have been featured in films. “Leave” in Chasing the Green, starring Jeremy London, “The Polite” in The Mini, and “In and Around ” in Other People’s Parties, a Sundance finalist. This song was also picked by National Geographic to be the theme for their “Go Green” campaign.
On MUMBLED SPEECH, Katie demonstrated gentle strength and versatility, captured beautiful moments through raw, emotion-filled lyrics, with melodies that are both catchy and haunting.
In her most recent release, CLOSER, Katie turns up the heat, getting grittier and more real. Find it on iTunes and more!
