Hidden Gem: Catey Shaw “The Ransom”

This is a quintessential Hidden Gem. That voice…that rhythm…the playfulness in the song: oh yeah:

You might recognize Catey from Brooklyn Girls a popular send up of the LA’s Valley Girls. I don’t doubt there’ll be more “why isn’t she bigger?” comments in response to this video. (Never understood that myself…is it luck? Marketing? Timing? Making a deal with the devil? All of these? That’s one of the hopes with Hidden Gems…maybe we can help somebody get bigger)

Fun Facts: Catey is a painter and plays the ukulele…I hope all of that is on her business card. Saw her a few weeks back at The Rivoli (with Featurette!) so good live.
