Singer-songwriter Cat Janice has died at the age of 31, her family has announced.

The star had been battling sarcoma, a type of cancer, for several years.

In her final months, Cat Janice changed the rights of her music into her seven-year-old son’s name to help him financially in the future.

Cat then released the single Dance You Outta My Head, which peaked at number two in the UK singles downloads charts.

The song also went viral on social media and she soon amassed almost two million followers on Tiktok.


Tragically, her family have announced this evening that Cat has passed away.

They also said that some more music will be released posthumously ‘in good time’.


A statement posted on Instagram reads: “This morning, from her childhood home and surrounded by her loving family, Catherine peacefully entered the light and love of her heavenly creator.

“We are eternally thankful for the outpouring of love that Catherine and our family have received over the past few months.

“Cat saw her music go places she never expected and rests in the peace of knowing that she will continue to provide for her son through her music.


“This would not have been possible without all of you. Thank you.

“This page will be memorialized by Cat’s brother, @the_last_cubby. He will also manage all operations surrounding Cat’s music, merchandise, and public relations.

“Per Cat’s request, there is some more art that she wants to share too. All in due time.

“With Love, The Ipsans”

Every penny made from Cat Janice’s music will go to her son – her extraordinary parting gift.
