Soul Shine Pizza is…
a popular pizza place off Music Row in Nashville, Tn. that is a great music venue for alternative, indie, blues music. Many musicians love to hang out there and the owner is a wonderful musician himself. We thought we would right a song about our experience at the Pizza restaurant.

 

We had a blast recording this single with some extraordinary musicians such as the iconic Leland Sklar, Johnny Neel, Dan Hagan, and Robert Harson and some great background vocalist Jason Eskridge, background singer for the Zac Brown Band, and Nicki Conley, background singer for Donna Summer. All in all, I had all star team that made the experience of recording remarkable and lots of fun. We recorded at Ocean Way on Music Row.

BIO:
In 2008 Cat headed to Los Angeles to record her first album. She teamed up with some of music industry’s finest top musicians: Leland ‘Lee’ Sklar, Dean Parks, Herman Matthews and Ned Albright. Together they created true art, a beautiful moving and tremendously honest album called “Love Me Out Loud.”

The spirit of the album has been described as “warm and strong.” Her lyrics carry a personal message of her “struggles and her surrender.” And like any true great artist, her music evokes a classic soulfulness that transcends genre and generation.
She is a mentor for children – with a passion to share knowledge and help those who would not otherwise have the opportunity.
“Love Me Out Loud” is filled with penetratingly honest ballads, and classic rhythms that can only be described as magical and authentic.
After living in Nashville, Tennessee for the past five years, Cat and her band are now working on her latest project ‘The Voice of Change”…Their newest release ‘Soul Shine Pizza’ celebrates the new forward moving energy in her life. She’ll often be heard singin’ “kick up your heels and dance on that table!”
It has been Cat’s life work to help people transition and go through changes knowing they are not alone. She has been a voice of inspiration through the honesty in her own journey – coaching, music and motivational speaking.
After a difficult bout with panic disorder years ago, along with an inability to perform during those dark days, Cat has fought back through the trenches to perform on major stages from Miami to Music City. She openly shares her journey and overcoming those obstacles with those around her and on stage. She has finally brought her three passions of music, mentoring and fitness together under one roof with a great message of overcoming. She and her colleague, Catherine ‘Cat’ Medley, from ‘Cats on a Mission’ will begin the “Music ‘n Motion’ seminar series tour in 2017 Nashville, TN.
It’s a full day of life altering stories of change from musicians and artists uniquely local to Nashville. Cat has spent the latter part of 15 years, coaching men and women to find the best version of themselves.
2016 brings completion of her 2nd EP ‘Win’ which will be highlighted by Cat and her band in the seminar series ‘Music ‘n Motion’.
