“Cat Bernardi is a jazz vocalist, composer, band leader and arranger. She performs a wide array of jazz standards from the American song book, as well as her own original music."
Cat Bernardi's love of music began when she was just a young girl, listening to Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" album while cruising on long car rides with her father. It was not long before other jazz icons like Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Holly Cole and Billy Holiday coerced her into singing jazz music herself. She began composing her own music, arranging her favourite standards and playing with several ensembles around the city including the Toronto Jazz Chorus, York University Jazz Choir, and her own group--the Cat Bernardi Quartet.
