With a 1966 Fender dubbed “pork chop,” Catherine Popper’s bass artistry has afforded a soulful “pop” to the canon of several high profile recording artists including Norah Jones (…Featuring Norah Jones), Grace Potter (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals), Ryan Adams (Cold Rose, Jacksonville City Nights, Easy Tiger, among others as a member of The Cardinals), Willie Nelson (Songbird), Rachel Yamagata (Elephants Teeth Sinking Into Heart), Jack White (Lazaretto), Joseph Arthur (The Ballad of Boogie Christ), Hem, and Mike Doughty to cite a few.

An accomplished vocalist and songwriter who is also skilled on the upright, Catherine seamlessly switches gears from rock, Americana, jazz, to country akin to the session cats of yore.
