Cat Thomson’s rise to success is like something out of a Hollywood movie. In 2005 the singer-songwriter who is currently signed to 604 Records (co-founded by Nickleback front man Chad Kroeger) was spotted singing in a talent contest while on a cruise with her family. Her voice moved a couple in the audience so much that they used their connections with Louisiana State Universi​ty who then offered her a full scholarship in opera training for five years.

Her serendipitous journey continued when Thomson’s music video was discovered on Twitter by Simkin Artist Management which led to her being signed by 604 Records. Thomson, whose smooth voice compliments her sophisticated and catchy pop songs, now strives to help others who share her passion for music.

Mentorship with Glass Ceiling Demolition Co.

Thomson is a mentor with Glass Ceiling Demolition Co., an inspiring mentorship organization that helps young women in their careers and businesses. She says: “I constantly see the need for young women to have strong influences in their life. I wanted young women to see that in music, it’s not always about just being the glorified pop star. There is so much more. You can be an engineer, a producer, a videographer etc.”

Thomson mentored Hannah Curr a sixth grader who has passions to work in the music industry. During their mentorship sessions, Curr joined Thomson at the studio where they would set short term and long term goals and sing together. Thomson recalls, “My mentee was so passionate about music, and we really were able to bond over that!”

A Mentorship Singing Duet

An exciting goal that the team embarked upon was to sing together at a photoshoot and performance put on by Thomson named “See Through The Lies”. The event, hosted by 604 records, was held to engage a dialogue about issues surrounding body image, bullying and self-worth.

“We practiced at every session and sang Brave by Sara Barielles on the big day. It was a ginormous success! My mentee sang her heart out and was the star of the show, I couldn’t have been more proud,” says Thomson.

Curr agrees: “Working with Cat helped me with my confidence and to feel brave performing.” She goes on to say: “She has a good influence on girls to just be themselves. I really enjoyed this experience, and I hope other girls take the opportunity to take part in a mentorship program for something that they really love with such a positive role model.”
