Cat Ricketts, formerly Cat Prewitt, is a Philadelphia-based singer and songwriter. Her background in poetry informs the delicate and precise language of every line, while her gentle voice encircles listeners like a hug. Her songs sing loudest at house shows and small listening rooms, or outdoors while the golden hour ushers in a summer night. She has performed at Philadelphia's Tin Angel, World Cafe Live, Kung Fu Necktie, The Fire, Milkboy Coffee, and Fleisher Art Memorial.
Cat studied creative writing at the University of Pennsylvania and is currently pursuing an MFA in creative non-fiction through Seattle Pacific University's low-residency program. Her non-fiction has been published in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Paste Magazine, Measure Journal, Becoming Magazine, and is forthcoming in Relief Journal.
Cat coordinates the Friday Nights concert series at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
