A songwriter and vocal interpreter of uncommon emotional depth and intuitive lyrical insight... Cathy Segal-Garcia has the uncanny ability of discovering deeper, previously uncharted soul territory in a song no matter the surroundings.
JW Vibe

With feelings of profound loss over the direction of the world in the last several years, Los Angeles vocalist Cathy Segal-Garcia found herself searching back through songs from the '60's & '70s - another period of existential uncertainty. The songwriters of the day spoke to those conditions, offering hopes for healing, love and redemption and providing a moral touchstone for a generation. Partnering with supreme musicians, Anthony Wilson, Josh Nelson, Lorca Hart, and Edwin Livingston, Cathy found new paths to voice the feelings at the center of those songs, while adding resonance for these times. Songs from Stephen Stills, Marvin Gaye, Steve Winwood & Peter Gabriel are combined with the Segal-Garcia original, "What Are We Gonna Do." They uplift, add perspective, and console. "Segal-Garcia uses her deep and expressive voice to suggest more - not hope, not optimism, but perhaps that faith in our ability to rebound." - Marc Phillips

Reviews of SOCIAL ANTHEMS, VOLUME 1

Midwest Record (Chris Spector)
Bob Lefsetz keeps saying things are messy these days because music doesn't drive the culture anymore. Part of the problem is that no one is driving the music. SoCal jazz vocalist Sega Garcia reaches back to the 60s to refashion some anthems the kids aren't punching up on You Tube anyway for a new airing with a new audience. Rounding up some real A ...
