Jeff Catto, Winner of the 2022 GMA Covenant Awards for both Country Artist and Country Song
Jan 26, 2023- Calgary, Alberta. Jeff Catto is a dynamic Alberta-based songwriter and producer from Owen Sound, Ontario. His new single, “Run to You,” is a heartfelt and wholesome country song about recognizing and acknowledging the importance of family.
“As I get older and see how fast time flies by,” he said, “I understand that the music life can be hard on significant others and family. I wanted to create something that let them know that they are what is most important to me. My family, my six kids. They are the real dream.”
This catchy, upbeat song resonates with honest emotion and tugs on the heartstrings with lyrics like, “I’d be on the first bus home; yea, I’d be airport bound. Oh, I couldn’t get to you fast enough, so I’d just turn the show around. Yea, it wouldn’t matter how far or the distance I’d go. These lights, this dream, this life, they’ve got nothing on you. I’d run to you.”
Catto has been writing songs for over 18 years, getting his start in music at just 16 when he auditioned for Canadian Idol. The experience ignited his passion for music and kick-started his music career.
In 2018 he was nominated for the CGMA “Best New Artist” category.
Last year, in November 2022, he was thrilled to win awards in two categories, Best Country Artist and Best Country Song of the Year, for ‘Dangerous With Your Love’ featuring Catto, Jonathan Turner, and Josh Fata.
His latest EP, “Neon Cathedrals,” delivers an infectious blend of singer-songwriter pop/rock country mixed with Gospel roots that have been influenced by and compared to notable artists like Dierks Bentley, Niko Moon, and Needtobreathe.
Through the ups and downs of addiction and recovery from alcohol and drug use,
Catto explains that “Run To You” was written from a place of wanting his wife to know that he would give up literally anything for her. “The dreams I have always had of being a big rockstar, chasing the neon lights, playing to millions of fans, I would give them up because being with her and my kids is far more important.”
Catto’s earlier release, ‘Songs For My Wife,’ carried breakout singles “Round Of Life,” “Want You Even More,” and “Friend,” with the latter spending significant time on Sirius XM as well as landing on over 500 stations globally including Canada, USA and Australia.
“Run to You” was written by Jeff Catto, produced by Jeff Catto and Ariel Delgado and mixed and mastered by Jonathan Turner. You can stream it here:
