She has worked with some of the great names in blues including John Lee Hooker (she toured as his send-off singer in 1987), Tommy Castro, Ron Thompson, and many others.Her current band is called "CATHY LEMONS & the blues xcentric" with Stevie Gurr (of Elvin Bishop and Dr. John), Paul Olguin (of Maria Muldaur), Kevin Zuffi (of Joe Lewis Walker), and Theron Petersen (Primus) Cathy Lemons writes songs that are as haunting as they are autobiographically revealing. She has 3 CD’s out: “Dark Road” (2000) and “Lemonace” on Vizztone ( 2010). Her 3rd, “Black Crow” (Vizztone) released March 25 2014.CRITICS: "One thing is certain…once you hear her, you will be a fan for life. This is music with a timeless quality that will have all the hitting power twenty years down the road that it does today. " Bill Wilson "A dandy dose of hot stuff that just doesn’t quit, Lemons isn’t about affectation and iconography, she’s the real deal .... Smoking, velvet soul blues that’s right in the pocket throughout, Lemons impresses throughout with this mighty release. A winner throughout." Chris Specter (Midwest Record). CATHY LEMONS
