The Cat Empire


The new era…

Thursday, September 15, 2022

We’re so excited to have you on this journey with us into a new chapter of The Cat Empire.

We’re deep into writing and rehearsal mode for a brand new Cat Empire album and live show. It’s shaping up to be incredibly vibrant and exciting. We’re also excited to have our friend Roscoe Irwin as a collaborator on all things Cat Empire, as well as the horns and many of the musicians and crew we’ve shared the journey with so far.

In the new year, we are heading to Fremantle for a very special show at Freo Prison on April 22,

That’s it folks…

Bluesfest is done and dusted, and what a show it was, with huge gratitude to the Byron Bay community, Peter Noble and team who rallied against so many difficulties to deliver this Festival and triumphed against the odds.

That’s it folks, the final show of THE CAT EMPIRE original line-up has now been celebrated. It is almost 21 years since our very first show together (May 2001). We have had an extraordinary ride, a blessed career, a lifetime full of experiences and we have a world of memories to take with us.

“Thank you” feels inadequate today.

You asked….

THANK YOU from the Original Line-up of The Cat Empire – Larger Than Life Characters we met

Sunday, April 17, 2022

There’s just something about The Cat Empire that managed to repeatedly attract larger than life characters into our midst. Maybe it’s the recklessness of the adventure we threw ourselves into, and certainly, it has something to do with the spirit of the music, but we have constantly met some of the wildest, weirdest, wackiest, cleverest, bravest, most adventurous people that the world has on offer. Inevitably these people would deliver us an idea, an opportunity, an adventure, a temptation, or a chance to take. More often than not we said “yes”. Miraculously, we didn’t die! You all know who you are –

THANK YOU from the Original Line-up of The Cat Empire – Album Engineers and Producers

Saturday, April 16, 2022

Andy Baldwin with your bangles, your dancing and your out loud yelps of delight. Jan Skubiszewski with your twinkle in the eye that always knows best and delivers even better. Jerry Boys who agreed going to Cuba to record an album was a great idea, and then helped us do it. John Porter for introducing us to Malibu and new ways of doing things in the studio. Adam Rhodes whose perfectionism and doggedness always delivered results and wry smiles…and all of the people who assisted all of you in studio and made the equipment work. Thank you for always performing the impossible feat of trying to translate what we do live onto a cd,

THANK YOU from the Original Line-up of The Cat Empire – Our partners and kids

Friday, April 15, 2022

When people have big dreams that take them away from home repeatedly, there are inevitably people that get left behind, and people who are called upon to support sometimes difficult situations. We could truly not have had this adventure without the very big love, large sacrifices and enormous levels of support we have had from our partners, our kids, and our extended families. Sarah Hull-Brown + Ben + Harry + Patrick + Miles, Eloise Mignone + Anya + Fidel, Meg + Edie + Deliliah + Fredi, Emily Lubitz + Louis, Sami, Remi, Leander Kreltszheim, Dave Strong + Frankie + Bella.
