Catman Cohen / Bio
Mysterious, controversial CATMAN COHEN is the strange shadow artist with the raw bullfrog voice. Various critics have referred to him as the "Loch Ness Musician."
Described as "Post Decadence Rock," his songs are based upon social action, notably a cry for the resurrection of neglected heroes (nurses, firemen, teachers, paramedics, universal peace-keepers, environmentalists, human rights activists, etc); a plea for assistance to those without adequate food or health care; and urgent warnings about the imminent fresh water crisis.
In October, 2011, Catman Cohen provided a limited release of his 4th CD entitled, “Confessions of a Shadow,” featuring his new opening track, “The Final Confessions I + Zero.” The CD received digital wide release in August, 2012.
The Catman Chronicles feature unusual guest vocalists, including Goths, she-males, and breathy, sexy sirens.
To date, Cohen has never performed live, and the sole performance video, Fluffle-O...based upon a hidden throwaway track on his first CD...revealed Cohen as nothing more than a silhouette behind a screen, playing piano in black gloves. Furthermore, to date, there has never been any absolute or categorical confirmation of Cohen's true identity, appearance, or background. In fact, in a recent interview, British rock artist, Francis Dunnery, renowned sideman for the legendary, Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), and a featured guest vocalist on "Confessions of a Shadow," stated, "I have no idea who Catman Cohen is and, as far as I know, nobody knows who Catman Cohen really is."
