Cat Named Jack
Cat Named Jack is a high-energy collective from Edinburgh which took root in 2013 debuting with a fully developed sound mixing soul, funk, and blues standards with inspired original numbers. Featuring the silver-toned sounds of lead vocalist Kat Loer, the band consists of nine high-octave members. The rhythmic precision of drummer and all round percussionist Callum Macleod, combined with seasoned lead/rhythm guitarist Jamie Crerar and punchy bassist Jim Strange, form a backline fully loaded with fusion points. Meanwhile, the lusty licks from Dougal Burnett (Sax), Paul Melone (Trumpet), and Iain McConachie (Trombone) in the brass section, coupled with the digital delights from Olivia Errey (Keys) provide sharp-edged grooves alongside deep layers of musical sediment. We’ve also just been joined by our newest member Claire McCarthy accompanying Kat on lead vocals and harmonies.
