Biography

catl. is a high energy rhythm n’ blues act hailing from Toronto. Well known for their intense live performances, this band has the ability to get people off their asses to sweat and boogie! After a winter-long hiatus, the rockin’ rhythm ‘n’ blues group have re-emerged as a “gruesome twosome” (Perlich Post) - Sarah Kirkpatrick, once behind the keyboards has moved her fury over to drums, and Jamie Fleming is still bashing away on his 40’s Gretsch. The result is a sexy, raw, primordial rock and roll experience. All stripped down, this dynamic duo is ready to make you shimmy and stomp all over the dance floor. The couple spent the winter writing a new record that they intend to record in the fall of 2013. catl.'s earlier influences of Mississippi hill country blues can still be heard in the primitive drumming, guitar playing and shouting that dominated their early recordings. They have more recently evolved their sound. emerging as a streamlined rock and roll explosion with their sights set on making the audience dance and move. Let's do this.

In the past, catl. has worked with producers Jim Diamond at Detroit's Ghetto Recorders studios as well as Jeff McMurrich in their hometown of Toronto. They have toured extensively in the United States as well as Canada, playing small clubs and parties to larger festivals such as The Montreal Jazz Festival and Sled Island. They have played shows alongside other high profile touring acts from The Alabama Shakes and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion to fan favourites The Gories and Andre Williams.

A 2014 spring release of their 4th LP will keep the band busy playing and touring throughout the coming year in North America as well as Europe.

"..…just pure, enthusiastic fun, played loudly enough to vibrate the venue's stage – and a couple of hearts, too.”
