Album Notes
“With vocals as rich as triple-chocolate mousse, Jahnke presents a beautiful sound, and a beautiful look into her intricate life.”
- Marta Alphonso; Swerve Magazine; Winnipeg, MB

150,000 kilometres.

All Canadian highway milage.

There probably aren't too many people around that are as intimately familiar with the interior of their vehicle as Cat. In only a few short years this girl from the prairies has performed over 300 shows and seen so much of the Canadian highways that she can drive straight up to the best "Ma & Pa" restaurant in even the smallest of towns without asking the locals for directions.

Cat has been busy for the past few years writing and recording her new album as well as scoring short films for Hollywood producers and NBC's "Ctrl", the first ever webseries created by a major television network. But now Cat is ready to hit the highway again. This time she will be bringing along her latest full-length release entitled, "The Stories Are Taking Their Toll". The new album contains 13 songs that range from quirky pop tunes to more aggressive folk rock rants which all highlight Cat’s incomparable vocal quality and her sincere storytelling ability. Among other tunes, "The Stories Are Taking Their Toll" contains the song "Apple" (the theme song from the hit NBC webseries "Ctrl") as well as "You Do Me Wrong" (winner of Best Original Score at the 168 Hour Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA).

Since Cat's 2006 release, "None Of Those Things" she has received a great deal of international attention. The title track from “None Of Those Things” was a finalist in both the “International Songwriting Competition” and the “John Lennon International Songwriting Competition”.  As well, the songs “Crocodiles” and “Happy Song” were licensed by the European company, “Positive Gaming” (www.positivegaming.com ), for use in their revolutionary “iDance” video game system.  Most recently, the song “Happy Song” was licensed by the CTV hit television series “Degrassi: The New Generation” which aired in 2009.  Since its release, ‘None Of Those Things’ has received consistent national representation on CBC.

"None Of Those Things" was a great start to a budding career and will allow Cat to walk through a lot of open doors with this latest release instead of having to kick them down. But Cat hasn't put away her steel-toed boots quite yet; there are still a lot of doors to kick down; there's still a lot of road to cover. It's a big world out there but "The Stories Are Taking Their Toll" is about to make Cat's world a whole lot smaller.

Winnipeg's Cat Jahnke's songwriting is classy, well-crafted, and highly accessible. Count CBC Radio among Cat's many fans. Since her freshman album's release, her songs have picked up airplay on programs originating in every part of the country. We anxiously await her next release....
- Mark Rheaume; CBC Radio Librarian; Toronto, ON

"She's got a poet's way with words, a heart that isn't afraid to be exposed, and an inner rock child that somehow makes even her darker songs upbeat and fun to listen to."
- Jeff Robson; UMFM Radio; Winnipeg, MB

“Her voice is as clear as a minus 30 C January day on the Prairies...”
- Cam Fuller; Star Phoenix; Saskatoon, SK

“Cat Jahnke [is] a soloist with vocal chords as refreshing as the crisp fall air...”
- Lorene Keitch; Golden Star; Golden, BC

“The result [of Cat's writing/muse?] is piano-based popular music, soothing like a wave of wheat rolling under the warm breath of a chinook.”
- Mikelle Sasakamoose; Kamloops This Week; Kamloops, BC

"Having worked with many different composers on various film and television projects, I've found Cat Jahnke to be the most inspired, committed, and enthusiastic collaborator. Cat is a joy to work with and I hope she can score all my future projects."
- Robert Kirbyson; Director; Hollywoood, CA
