Louis Cato has an undeniable ability to craft sonic landscape into timeless masterpiece. After two decades of lending his talents to other projects, Cato is set to birth his first solo release which features eight original songs recorded, produced and mixed entirely by the renaissance man himself: “I set out to make an honest record, a documentation of who I am and what I do…I feel like I’ve done that.”
Louis Cato is that true multi instrumentalist, holding down the drum chair with Marcus Miller, guitar and drums with Bobby McFerrin, and guitar and bass on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In between his time producing with Q-Tip, or recording on the new Jack White record, Louis Cato is a singer and songwriter – and his debut is ready for release on November 3. A collection of uplifting songs that can be defined as funky pop, Starting Now reveals Cato’s view of the world – the message that he wants to fully convey. Lyrically, he reminds us of John Lennon and Bob Marley in that he is totally open and accessible – his story is our story.
