Winner of the National John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Peace Promotion:

Catherine Feeny grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, part of a tight-knit family for whom music was a uniting force. Absorbing Springsteen through her older brother, Simon and Garfunkel through her parents and The Smiths through her elder sister, she early on developed a keen ear for songwriting.

Feeny received classical training in voice at the Settlement School of Music and began learning to play the guitar as a young teen. Idolizing the likes of Sinead O’Connor and the Indigo Girls, she joined several bands and began writing her own songs.
