Bands: Solo Artist & Songwriter
Bio: Cassandra “Cat” Sotos is an artist, songwriter and international-touring violinist, known primarily for her live and studio work in country, rock, pop, and Bollywood. Her debut single “Annie Oakley” was released April 30, 2020.
Her journey as a musician started at the age of four when she first picked up her violin – by 13, she was performing in honkytonks and dive bars. After a brief detour as an industrial engineer in New York City, she realized she needed to re-devote her life to music. She moved to Nashville immediately.
Cassandra has toured across the world, most notably a two-year tour with Indian pop star Arijit Singh. His MTV India Tour was the largest tour in the country’s history, and the rest of the world tour included sold-out shows across North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, including the iconic Wembley Arena in London. She has recorded and performed with The Wildflowers (Tony Harnell of TNT and Bumblefoot of Guns ‘N’ Roses), ABA (Italy), Vitera and Tequila Rock Revolution. She also toured as a part of the Wrangler National Patriot Tour to perform for service people stationed in the Middle East. You may have seen her profiled in Strings Magazine.
She is an active member and Nashville Chapter Co-Chair of Women in Music (assisting in the launch of WIM Nashville and WIM India), and she works to empower young musicians and songwriters, especially females, through her professional and non-profit work in the industry.
She loves cats, comedy, coffee, clovers, chocolate cake, carnations, cute camels, cauliflower, the color crimson and most things starting with the letter W.
