About Us

Cathy Linda Baldwin is the owner of DaCat Music and Publishing. She has a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas where she studied both Classical and Jazz Guitar and Piano and Voice. She has written songs for a number of years and performed both originals and covers. She has had her songs cut by independent and major artists in the United States and abroad. Having spent a great deal of time in Nashville Cathy had the opportunity to write with Wil Nance (who has penned hits for George Strait and Brad Paisley as well as others) and Dan Demay (who has penned songs with Martina McBride and Tracy Lawerence…). As a publisher she is constantly looking for songs for placement in advertising, television shows, movies, and commercials. She spends a great deal of time developing songwriters and giving guidance on the music business. Prior to becoming a published writer Cathy taught privately for a number of years teaching students from age 3-78. She taught in Montessori schools and recreation centers as well. She has been a guest speaker for various songwriter organizations. One of the first things she always tells aspiring songwriters is to keep trying and not give up in their music.

From a child to an adult, there are many benefits to learning to play an instrument. Increased math skills, help with coordination, increased memory capacity, and improved reading and comprehension, the benefits of playing an instrument are endless.
