Cat Jahnke live at the Bassment Wednesday June 12th, 8pm
Since 2005, Winnipeg singer-songwriter, Cat Jahnke, has built a loyal fan base across Canada, touring regularly and releasing 4 albums. Her hard work has been noticed, garnering her a nomination for “Contemporary Vocalist of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2011, second place in the 2013 International Songwriting Competition, and funding from arts associations like FACTOR and Manitoba Film and Sound.
Cat has proven her flexibility, and the strength of her musical chops, by contributing work to a diverse range of projects including a webseries (NBC’s “Ctrl”), indie documentaries (Men with Beards, Letters to our Children), and video games (iDance, Daymare Cat). Her songs have been part of such high-profile TV shows as Dance Moms, Degrassi: The New Generation, and MTV Live.
A musical chameleon, Cat is constantly reinventing herself: as a folk musician, film composer, a video game character (in Daymare Cat, an online game played over a million times), and even as a reality show contestant (CBC Television’s, Canada’s Smartest Person, 2014). With her upcoming album, “The Brighter The Stars”, set for release in the spring of 2017, Cat will prove yet again that she is capable of upending expectations and delighting fans, both old and new, with her music.
