Cat Rolfes

Singer-songwriter Cat Rolfes grew up in New Orleans and was exposed to the city’s multicultural melting pot of music early on. She first started writing and playing music as a child and took in the unique genres of the area – jazz, boogie-woogie, R&B, blues, gospel, rock and zydeco – as live music was ingrained many aspects of daily life. She continued to perform and write music after moving to Chicago, transporting her swampy R&B and southern rock style up north.

Debuting in 2018, Hwy 55 is her first full-length all-originals album. Named after the 964-mile stretch of highway connecting her hometown with her current home (and a nod to other southern cities along the way, famed for their musical heritage), it’s a southern roots rock LP that blends laid-back Chicago soul, gritty New Orleans R&B, and a bit of frisky funk.
