The Rainbow ConnectionMixtape for Palestine

Original music by Catherine Scholz, singer-songwriter

Original indie-folk music to soothe the heart and soul

Welcome to my music, thanks for stopping by. I’m a singer-songwriter based out of Northern California. Though I started piano lessons at age 6, my singing/songwriting journey began during high school when I took some poetry (Maya Angelou, Robert Frost) and set it to music. Before that, I had been an instrumentalist, mostly. You can read my full bio on my Press Page.

Everything here has been independently produced (without the assistance of a label) through my own efforts and with support and donations from friends, fans, and family. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my journey. Check out my radio interviews or read reviews or subscribe to news on my blog.

I’ve produced 2 full albums as well as 2 singles. Whirlwind Girl (2008) and Right Here Now (2014) are available on Apple MusicPandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, LastFM, YouTube, YouTube MusicJango/RadioAirPlay, iHeartRadioTidal and more.

In 2014, I self-produced my CD Release Concert at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA with the help of my friends and supporters. “Let This Be Enough”  and “Hallelujah” were released in 2023. Currently, “President” is being included in the Mixtape for Palestine, a fundraiser for the well-being of children in the Middle East. “Take My Hand” which dropped on Valentine’s Day 2024. I released an EP “The Familiar Road,” which I recorded in 1998, my acoustic cover of “The Rainbow Connection” is now available. Coming soon, The Serenity Project.
