The cat is out of CTRL!

Prairie singer-songwriter, Cat Jahnke is stopping by Fernie this week as part of her Western Canadian tour.

The Saskatoon-born folk singer combines folksy charm with pop music, making her music interesting and unique.

She grew up singing at church and learned to play piano when she was young. She considered many different careers and says she made the decision to become a musician after having her heart broken and writing an album about it.

Since then she has enjoyed a very successful career and gained many fans along the way. She says she finds inspiration to write through traumatic events in her life.

She even landed the job doing the music score for NBC’s “CTRL” web series, and there is a good chance season two of Ctrl is going to happen.

Jahnke has won awards for song writing and was the winner of the 2006 168 Hour Film Festival best original score for the film Free of Charge.

In April, Cat spent four days in Los Angeles during which time she performed at the 168 Hour Film Festival. Cat contributed her song “Tuesday” to one of the featured films. She knocked out the large audience with her performance and as a result was invited to walk the red carpet the next evening.

Catch this unique Canadian artist tomorrow night (Thursday, June 7) at Clawhammer Letterpress & Gallery, Fernie. The show is at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15. Call 250-946-6400 for more information.
