You had me when you did 'Fools Gold' on the Vivino Bros. Chitlins Parmigiana CD. Please step into Whitney's shoes soon. We need someone who can bring it down to all of us, and that's you Catherine.
We love Catherine's music. No one swings better! Laura Hill
I see you will be coming to Saint Louis soon. I am so excited that I am jumping up and down right now. I sooo enjoy your CD's and can't wait to see you in person. You will love the Sheldon, it is a very classy place. My wife and I used to bring a three year old daughter on Tuesday night to the notes from home program and it was only five dollors a person and they let Tara in free. She is now almost 21 and will be going off to college soon. I am soo happy to get to hear you in concert. Steven Mazurek
Hear your fabulous voice on station KPLU in Seattle area. Please, please, please come to town!!! Would love to hear you in person!
I love what you do, especially when you sing from the Willie Dixon songbook. I saw and spoke with you in Bethlehem last September. I've been trying to get my wife out to see you. Hopefuly the next time that you play Shanghi Jazz in Madison, NJ. Best wishes! Blll Miller
I was surprised to catch her performing with Boz Skaggs a few years back at Englewood, NJ Performing Arts Center. She stole the show. Keep up your great work. Truly....a wonderful and talented gal. Patricia Keenan
Just sensational. I have been listening to the player on your myspace page for almost an hour now. I am loving every minute of it. Love your voice and song selections. I look forward to communicating with you again. I have always liked you, your humor and intelligence. Radadast Williams
Absolutely love your music! Would love to see you in New York! Sarah Olivia Love
Wow. Addicted to you and your song choices. Refreshing!!! Less is more. Love it!
I have repaired Catherine's mandolin many times while at Matt Umanov guitars. I would like to get word to her that I now have my own store TR Crandall Guitars at 179 East 3rd. I would also like to invite her and Paul to our opening party on April 6th from 6:00 to 9:00
Phyllis and I were at the Bistro Awards last night and just loved your singing.
Phyilis and Bernie Katz
March 3rd at Saint Peter's Church, Prez Fest. We talked about your Mom, Cobi, Delilah and her daughter, Jill, before the concert. I told you that the major factor why I attended was that you were the emcee; besides, it's important for locals to support our own. I was so happy I went. It was a good time. The talent was superb! Enjoyed your rendiitions of the Cab But I tell you I was more happy with your emcee skills. Wonderful! Shirl Carter
Love you! Glad I got to say "Hello" between sets at Shanghai Jazz when I congratulated your belated but much deserved success (but asked that you not get too, too famous lest I no longer be able to afford admission to your shows!) Ken
I couldn't sit still in my seat at the 8:00 show at Scullers!! You were wonderful!! Thank you for such a geat experience. The best concert I've been to since I saw Ella Fitzgerald in Newport years ago. You are soooo full of LIFE!! Alan Day
info on future appearancs in Washington DC area appreciated
I had the great pleasure of hearing you a few days ago in StThomas You sang a song about a bottle of whiskey that was "so quiet when it was on the shelf" Loved the song and your delivery, but i can't find music, words or a recording of the song. Can you point me in a direction?
By the way, I am a mandolin player, southern string band and memphis jug band styles, I lam enjoying the CD I purchased from you with the banjo-mandolin, and the pedal steel.
Thanks again for coming to our island, You have a lot of very enthusiastic supportters down here.
You are awesome, crazy good !!! "strictly romancin' " is by far the GREATEST cd of 2012 any/every genre. (The musical arrangements are the bomb, too.)
Keep on singing it like you singing it girl and please don't you ever stop, don't even think about stopping singing.
You are the Macchu Picchu of singers ... no matter how high the expections, you exceed them! Lenore Rice
Count me a fan,Catherine! Just discovered you on Spotify and Youtube and utterly knocked out!! Any chance of you coming to England?? Going to order a couple of your albums. Gordon.
I absolutely LOVE your music and was thrilled to hear your coming back to Atlanta soon!!! I was fortunate to have seen you when you were in town with Levon and fell in love with your voice and music and the next day went out and bought your cd's. By the way, I just noticed your with Paul Kahn/Concerted Efforts in Somerville, MA. I grew up about an hour south in Marion, MA, use to come up to the city for shows all the time when I was there.
Please keep me posted anywhere your going to perform in the Southeast and it will be a great roadtrip for me, thanks!
Thoroughly enjoyed your performace for Artists Celebrate Dr. MLK, Jr. at Symphony Space. Thank you for sharing your talent. Marie D
I first heard you on Eric in the evening and fell in love. Then I bought a couple of albums and saw you at Scullers. I am a great fan.

Please sign me up for your mailing list. Great show at LPR tonight! Jason Gross
Bravo, Ms. Russell! Been diggin' your fantastic voice since your days with Steely Dan. Heard you recently on NPR. New jazz center opening ihere in San Francisco this January. You will come and see us sometime won't you? Cheers!
Wonderful voice. First tme I have heard it, but it won't be the last.
Iris Eustace Halmos
I am based in London and would love to see Catherine perform at Ronnie Scotts. Is there any chance of this happening?
Heard her on fresh air. 'in the dark" is the best thing I've heard since Nina Simone's 'wild is the wind'. Please come back to California soon. Let me know! Audrey Moore
Saw Catherine with Steely Dan in the summer of 2011 and with the Dukes of September in the summer of 2012 and can't get enough of her great vocals!
catherine, i could not forget to let you know what a great interview and voice on NPR. i, too, have a bit of familiarity with Louis Armstrong. When I was 5 years old i sat on his lap at the Moulin Rouge restaurant in Los Angeles. That was in 1956! he sang happy birthday to me! on stage. of course, i did not know him, but my parents (now both gone, and unfortunately, both deserted me for the most part most of my life), but i do have that true story about "Sachmo" to tell. guess that is why to this day i love the so-called "old" music, the type of music you do so well. of course, like you, i still love the old rock songs, too, of Led Zepplin, Stones, and so many more, the Who, on and on. Keep singing, Catherine. Your voice is so good. Kathryn
I heard an interview with you on NPR and listened to some of your songs. I can't believe I missed you all of these years. No problem now. Thanks! David Kerr
Spent Christmas yesterday listing to Jane Siberry's "Child" live Christmas album that I bought at the replicate Seattle show you all played at several years ago. Your performance of "What Child is This" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I posted it on a friend's Facebook page who is a midwife and delivered her daughter's daughter earlier yesterday morning. Simply amazing, apropos and beatiful.. Thanks so much, Catherine.
Heard a repeat of your 2012 NPR interview today. I realize why Terri chose it as a favorite! Bought your CD. Thank you for such wonderful music. Hope you get to the L.A. Area in 2013.
Heard you on NPR's "Fresh Air", great voice!!
Enjoyed your interview and your voice of course on NPR. Awsesome. I related to the part of haveing parents from the 30-40's in music. My dad was an arranger fro Artie Shaw and Glenn Miller. He was in Europe with Glenn Miller and took over the orchestra when Miller disapeared. My step mom was USO singer in the Pacific. Hope you come out west soon. Thanks for the great music.
Love your voice, send word of your gigs in nyc!
I can't wait to see you in person. Thanks to Terri Gross I have been introduced to your music. Happy New Year. Sylvia Augustus
Is this Cookie Russell? OMG, we played in numerous bands together along the Russian River in California back in the 1970s. David Songbird's Band Smokin as well as a few others. I lost touch with you years ago. Was listening to the Terry Gross interview and when I heard you talking about your mom, I started to suspect it WAS YOU! Please look me up at
Love catherine, saw her at the steel stacks blues show this summer can't wait to see her again. Nancy Luccio
Loved your peromance at the Century Club tonight! What a voice! I can't wait to hear you again. Ruth Stevens
I have to thank the CBC for introducing me to Catherine Russell back in the summer. I have heard quite alot of her stuff now and it bears repeated listening. It is soulful and elegant and deliciously clear. She is glorious. I would love to see her live. I'd like to cook dinner for her. All the best to her. She has given us hers!
I'm hearing Catherine tonight on Mountain Stage on WAMC New York/Albany. I have always appreciated Mountain Stage music, but never before have I been so excited by a vocalist. I appreciated the shout out to Alberta Hunter, and not to take anything away from Catherine's personal style...but I am reminded of one of my favorite vocalists, Abbey Lincoln. I hope Catherine returns to Saratoga, so I can see her live. I know what CD will be under my tree this Christmas! THANKS! Chris Browne
Heard about you from my sister she saw you in Rockport MA! Looked up your website and love your music!! Please come to Austin TX would love to come see your show!! Cheryl Collins
Soooo, when did you last perform on Long ISland

Many musical thanks! Bob Spiotto
Hi, we've enjoyed your shows at Scullers Jazz Club in Boston each year - would love to know when to expect you back again.

We saw and heard you for the very first time this weekend in Interlochen, MI. You have grace and charisma. Keep on!
I've seen you perform with Steely Dan and also with the Dukes Of September.
Your solo of Piece of my heart blew me away. Your vocals brought a tear to my eye.
You are amazing!
We are so looking forward to seeing you at Monterey! My husband is a pianist from LA who now lives in Maryland. When I first found you on the net I was very impressed and made him listen. He agrees that you are a great vocalist and we are excited to see you at our first trip to the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Your vocal ability blew me away at the August 6 concert at Wolftrap with the Dukes of September. What an incredile evening!
Heard your story on Fresh Air and it was extreemly moving and touching. Your music is wonderful too....;-)
Catherine Russell's songs are so beautiful and filled with the joy of living (including those sad moments in life we all experience) that she makes my eyes misty even on the upbeat numbers. Just an unremitting joy to listen to her and the guys in the band.
Just heard Catherine on NPR~ whow, she's fantastic! Any plans for her to tour in Portland, OR or San Francisco? Nancy Pautsch
thanks for the great last album and magic show in los angeles with dukes of september
Saw the Dukes of September in Denver tonight best show ever. Catherine you were awesome tonight. Saw you with the Dukes last at Red Rocks ,have been a fan since. Anne

Love your music!! Heard your interview on "Fresh Air" - so glad you decided to make that first album - we are all better off for it! Mary Kate Price
Great music!! Brian Hoffer
I first heard Cat when she stole the show in Golden Gate Park while performing with the Dukes of September. a few years ago. This past weekend, I heard her perform in Saratoga with her great band, confirming my reaction of her extraordinary talents. Time for her dad's song Lucille to get major play!
Strickly Romancin' is a masterpiece! I can't get enough!
Hoping to come to Princeton with my husband, brother and sister-in-law. Trying to find out more information about the concert...
Long Valley, NJ
Oh Catherine, just recently heard several of your songs listening to WXPN out of Philadelphia, the blues show on Saturday evenings and on sirrius radio, B.B. Kings Bluesville. You are something!!! Hats off to your fabulous band as well! I am going to try and see you at Princeton NJ Jazzfeast, or at Blast Furnace Blues Festival Bethlehem PA. You are soooo good, how come I haven't heard of you sooner? Will be buying your CDs as well. Best of everything to you! Caryn Husowech
Just stopping by to say I really enjoy Catherine Russell's musical style of jazz! I'm so sorry that I missed her performance while she was at the Xerox International Jazz Festival in Rochester, N.Y. Well, at least I'll be able to buy some of her great music!
A New Fan of Catherine Russell,
I just recently found out about your music from when you did an interview with NPR. I live in Iowa and I hope you come here soon. I love your music!!
Thank you for the wonderful concert tonight (6/24) in Rochester tonight! I enjoyed it immensely and hope you'll be back again next year. Judith
Please, please schedule a tour visit to WISCONSIN !!!! We are enchanted by your sound, your history, your arrangement of music and would love to have you come to Milwaukee. You are a special person with a delightful voice and we cannot get enough of your unique blend of this music.
Thanks for all that you bring.
Hello! A friend of mine from San Francisco was playing you when I last visited, and thank God for SoundHound...I logged your fantastic voice and am awaiting shipment of all 4 of your CDs. (HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF YOU UNTIL NOW??) And I just saw you'll be in the neighborhood come September 19th at Catalina Jazz Club! I plan on being there & hope to say hello in person. All the best, Michael
I saw Catherine at the Garth Newell Music Center in Hot Springs, Virginia. We loved your music and bought your CD's, also great. Your voice is wonderful, it is like smooth flowing melted chocolate, continuous, connected, flowing and wonderful. Your choice of material is great too! I think I love you. I danced a little Salsa with you when Grupo Fantasma was playing. What a great time. I will take it with me. Dan Solomon
Via the Jazz station on my cable TV, I have just "discovered" your amazing talent: I love your voice, your style, your depth, your delivery -- everything! Now that I've found your website, I hope to hear you in more places than on my television! Your music shows the lineage of the swing era brought into the 21st century. I love that. Always felt as if I had been born too late, but listening to you makes me feel that I'm living at exactly the right time. Thank you!
Very fine website. Visit Dakota Jazz Club in Mpls. Joe
Just missed the Harlem performance. Waiting til October, I guess. Fabulous voice! Tanya
