Voices blend seamlessly together
Hailing from Cleveland, Cat Calabrese is a pop vocalist and songwriter. She writes her lyrics with fearless vulnerability while weaving in memorable and catchy pop melodies.
Cat began her solo career as a way to cope with and heal from trauma. Feeling stripped of all control, she looked to music to regain her power and begin fighting back. In doing so, she is cultivating a pop sound that reflects a woman who is ready to tell her own story in her own words.
Cat launched her career in March 2021 with her debut single, Quicksand, co-produced by a collaborator of Machine Gun Kelly’s. Eager to build on the momentum of the track, Cat teamed up with Cleveland producer and songwriter DJ London Bridges and she has been consistently releasing new singles since her debut. She has been featured in major publications including Rolling Stone, This Is 50, and The Hype Magazine and landed an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. Cat likes to say she is”telling her truth one song at a time”. Whether she is belting a powerhouse break-up anthem or showing her softer, more vulnerable side, Cat’s music will leave you humming her truths and eager to hear more.
Building on the success of her March 11th release of “Sleeping Alone”, Cat and long-time collaborator/producer, Romanic are releasing a live version of the track. In tandem with the single also comes a music video of the performance, shot at Lava Room Recording, a premier studio in Cleveland. Directed by Owen Zubek, the video supports the live track in standing firmly on its own; the arrangement and visuals build beautifully on the energy of the original while offering a true duet between Cat and Romanic.
The pair’s voices blend seamlessly together while simultaneously showcasing each of their unique abilities. As a mid-tempo, electropop/dance-pop track, the song features pulsing bass, electronic drums/percussion, and synthesizers. You can hear the emotion in both artists’ voices as they paint a picture of what life is like for someone struggling with depression and the hollow loneliness that oftentimes comes with it.
