•about joe cat•
Joe Cat is an Americana Singer/Songwriter living in Athens Georgia. Growing up listening to rock n’ roll in the blue collar town of Endicott, New York. His Americana style gained many of it’s roots from that sound. Joe Cat is a veteran trubadour, traveling the country and playing his music for everyone.
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, as in his 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. 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 has released six albums beginning in 2010. Prior to a life as a musician Joe Cat worked as a factory worker, a U.S. Marine, and many other low wage, blue collar jobs. His sound is authentic and a true form of Americiana.
Joe Cat is gritty, blue-collar, music.
