​Cathy Gianfala Carriere  


  Coming from a very musical family, my life has always been about music. I sing many styles of music.  Pop, Classical, Sacred, Jazz Standards, Broadway, Folk and Country.   

  For me, singing and playing music is not about what I can get from it, but about what I can give to others. Music can help to heal. I hope to make a difference with the music I'm inspired to write and perform for you. Have a joyful day, keep life simple and let your light shine!  God bless you!  Cathy          


   Oct. 9, 2014, Cathy was invited to perform in Aspen, Colorado, at The Wheeler Opera House for The First John Denver Festival. This was her fourth year to be invited to sing at events to honor the music and life of John Denver, for his Tribute week.

  Many thanks to Willie Hoevers and John Denver's fans for making this new event possible!      

  Thank you to everyone who came to my Concert at Parkway Presbyterian Church. 

Thank you to John Denver's friends, fans, musicians and others, for your wonderful comments and reviews of my albums, Love Song A Tribute to John Denver and A Matter of Faith.   Cathy

In the year 2000, Cathy had a very profound dream about John Denver and wrote lyrics to "Love Song A Tribute to John Denver." In 2009, while inspired with new songs, the music came to her in about 10 minutes. 

"Love Song" led her to be invited to sing at John Denver's Tribute in Aspen, Colorado Oct. 2010 and every year.  Oct. 12, 2012, the 15th Anniversary on John Denver's death, Cathy was asked to be guest soloist for a Memorial Sunset Service for John Denver in Aspen, at his Windstar Land Conservancy and at other venues.

  Cathy is working on new projects and is invited to perform in Marseilles, France, as well as other places in the U.S.  There are also plans to visit Italy to sing with her friends The John Denver Project-Band!
