"An unusual yet, at times, spellbinding artist..."

- Music Connection

“Startlingly original it takes an artist like Catman Cohen to really show the way forward in sonic artistry and he has continued to bring material of the finest calibre to the forefront. His vocal style is deep and brash but the floating melodies contradict this with great effect.”
- Subba-Cultcha

"Twelve tracks and Catman comes out stronger than before; there is evolution and progression with 'How I Want To Dream' that makes me want to listen to any follow up releases that [they] may put out there in the next few years."
- NeuFutur

Catman Cohen is the mysterious, controversial creator of the music trilogy, "The Catman Chronicles," a collection of songs that have themes related to life, death, and dreams. Described as Post-Decadence Rock, Cohen's songs spring from a foundation of social activism, primarily in calling for a resurrection of neglected heroes (e.g., nurses, paramedics, teachers, firemen, universal peace-keepers, environmentalists, human rights activists, animal rights activists, etc.); a plea for assistance to those without adequate food or health care; and a cry for urgent remedial efforts to preclude an imminent fresh water crisis.

Very little is known about Catman Cohen. To date, his only publicity consists of shadow photos and his official bio excludes data such as birthdate, birthplace, and other personal details. He believes artists MUST step into the background in order that society can shift its spotlight onto various key vocations (especially nursing) that are in crisis. He turns down interviews, instead requesting that a list of social activist friends be considered in his place, stating that they have more urgent things to say about the world than anything he might offer.

Cohen's extremely deep, bullfrog singing voice has drawn comparisons to various artists, particularly Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Barry White. It is that strange unusual singing voice that forms the fulcrum within his CD's, featuring guest performances by she-males, Goths, and other atypical entertainers.
