Tierney Sutton: I'm the Crazy Cat Lady of Jazz

She may be a hip cat, but award-winning jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton has a secret.

“I’m the crazy cat lady of jazz,” says Sutton, 48, who along with her band, recently earned her fourth Grammy nomination.

“When I was touring for 10 years, I was bereft of cats,” she says, “but now I have three.”

They include two black angoras – a brother-sister combo named Buster and Queenie, both 2 – and 8-year-old Cheddar, a light orange tabby that she got four years ago. All three are rescues.
