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 Steven 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 17. 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.
“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.”
