While clubs are always a great place for artists to introduce their new music, the same can be said for the roller rink; if people with wheels on their feet are moving along to your song, then you know you’re onto a good thing, Florida singer songwriter Cat Ridgeway takes her new single, ‘Sweet Like Candy’, to a skatepark, and is surrounded by roller skaters in the video for the song. With her trademark wide and genuine smile, she alone stands still with her guitar, as she strums, and sings.
The world seems to spin faster as she sings as well. Her voice is magical – pulse-quickening, heart-racing, and dynamic. ‘Sweet Like Candy’ conjures up Motown, as well as cosmopolitan country, along with contemporary pop – all held together with mastery as Cat guides her listeners from a welcoming verse to an explosive, celebratory chorus that feels like a homecoming.
‘Sweet Like Candy’ serves as a cornerstone for her 2020 album, ‘Nice To Meet You’, but that’s not to say some songs are more important than others. Rather, every song Cat Ridgeway sings is a highlight.
