Joe Cat is an Americana Singer/Songwriter living in Athens Georgia. Growing up listening to classic rock radio in Endicott, New York. His Americana style gained many of it’s roots from that sound. Over the past few decades, he has worked and lived in many different areas of the East Coast.
Joe Cat writes music that is simple, and straight forward about dark complicated subjects. His music is a portrait of observations mixed with a wild imagination. It is that inner voice that is only confident enough to speak out loud when it is placed in a song. Sometimes music can help us to deal with many of life struggles, from love found and lost, to unfulfilled dreams and broken promises. In sharing these very personal experiences they may help to console the listener. From the aftermath felt by a soldier now living in the complicated world outside of the military, like in this song “Americas Best”. To the struggles of hard working people everywhere trying to make a living for their families with very limited opportunities as illustrated in the song, “Sleep Like Kansas”. His music wants to tell us that we are not alone. That life itself should be a journey to be celebrated and shared. Joe Cat’s music is for everyone who works hard at what they love or hate. For all the people who will never see the silver lining. For all of the ones who are too scared to be themselves and too selfish to help others. It’s for the ones who inspire creation and help other artists with their craft. For the believers and dreamers of the world.
Joe Cat released the album, “My Pappy’s Bible”, in 2013. It was recorded at Studio 1093 in Athens Georgia, and engineered by Newt Carter. It is a solo acoustic album, recorded in a very honest fashion. Currently, he is working on his next studio album, “How are you?, Where are you?”, to be released in the February 2016.
