Cathy Madigan Eagle

A brisk spray of seawater douses your body as you crest the wave and capture its energy. Your skin tingles and muscles stretch as you bring the windsurfer back to the breeze...and suddenly discover clear sailing ahead as far as the eye can see."

It's a favorite moment for musician and songwriter Cathy Madigan Eagle...and a bit of insight into her passion for writing and performing.

From the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico...A truly gifted singer, songwriter and guitarist, Cathy Madigan Eagle has been sharing her musical talent since she was eleven years old. Growing up in Michigan's upper peninsula, surrounded by the majesty of ancient forests and rugged natural coastline, Cathy found a style routed in acoustic folk/rock. Adding blues, classics, and some country opened doors for performances throughout Michigan, Canada, and Southwest Florida.

Sharing the strength and passion within...Cathy began writing heavily in l994 and the journey took her into the gospel music genre. She wrote and recorded over fifty songs, producing two albums, "Embraced by the Son" and "Give Me Wings to Fly". Her single, "Bless Me Indeed", based on the book The Prayer of Jabez, was released in August of 2001 and received heavy rotation on Christian radio stations from Southwest Florida to Ontario, Canada. It has recently been translated into Spanish.

She was featured in the December 2000 issue of Gulf Coast Woman and became a finalist at the Babbie Mason Music Seminar in Atlanta in 2001 for the performance of her original song, "Seeds of Praise". She was the featured artist at "An Evening With Katharine Harris", Florida's Secretary of State, at the Naples Beach Hotel and was the special music guest at a dinner featuring CNN host Alan Keyes at the Sanibel Harbour Resort and Spa. More recently, Cathy traveled to Nashville to perform at Sip of Seattle, a coffee house in the heart of downtown Nashville. She is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International, Gospel Music Association and ASCAP(The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers).

A fresh, natural approach...Throughout it all, Cathy is energized by her love of the outdoors and life's simpler pleasures. While piloting her boat among the Gulf islands or sitting on a moonlit beach, the music is in her heart. The rhythms and revelations of her songs flow naturally. And the joy resounds in every chord of her music.
