      Hello and Welcome to my website!         


​​​​Cathy Gianfala Carriere  


Vocalist Guitarist 

Singer Songwriter

Recording Artist

​​New Orleans vocalist/guitarist.

41 years performing professionally.

Cathy sings Concerts, Weddings, Funeral Services and Special Events.

Classically trained; her voice has been compared to many Pop and Classical Vocalists.  


​​​  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  

    My Mother Peggy Sue Fugate Gianfala passed away Oct. 24th, 2015.   

I took care of Mom  for the 3 months of her illness and was with her when she passed away.  My Mom and Dad inspired me and passed on their musical gifts to me.

They are sadly missed by all of my family and friends. Thank you to everyone who sent messages and sympathy cards.

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 and other countries in Europe. as well as in the U.S. There are also plans to visit Italy to sing with her friends 

The John Denver Project-Band!
