After a winter-long hiatus, the rockin’ rhythm ‘n’ blues group known as catl. are re-emerging with a newly configured line-up. Real-life couple Jamie Fleming (catl) and Sarah Kirkpatrick have decided to continue their musical journey as a duo with Kirkpatrick playing drums. The result is a sexy, raw, primordial rock and roll experience. All stripped down but just as energetic and fun. You can expect exciting re-workings of your favourite catl. songs as well as some brand new jams. The duo has spent the winter writing a new record that they intend to record in the fall of 2013.
catl. are embarking on a 2 week U.S. tour that will take them deep into the Southern states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi - back to the origins of blues and rock and roll.
BLACK OIL BROTHERS
There’s a source in rock ‘n’ roll music, born in Mississippi’s delta, distilled in its hill country and raised on the streets of Chicago’s south side. The way The Black Oil Brothers see it,the blues is the truth, rock ‘n’ roll is the way, and outlaw country is the life.
Deep blues and Americana from the city nestled in its heartland, The Black Oil Brothers utilize everything we can beg, borrow or steal, to create music that let’s your ears know there ain’t a damn thing wrong with the sound of a good soul feeling bad.
Such is the blues. Such is the music of The Black Oil Brothers, turning heartbreak into ass shake in the sincere belief that how we live this life is defined by how hard you shake off its troubles. So turn it up, remember no one is guaranteed a tomorrow and shake ‘em off.
