Alpha Cat Releasing Thatched Roof Glass House Album
After an extended hiatus, composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Elizabeth McCullough, aka Alpha Cat, has now returned with Thatched Roof Glass House (Aquamarine Records).
By: Alpha Cat
Beginning to compose her own songs she turned to some of those artists for help and guidance. One of them, Fred Smith, formerly the bassist with Blondie and the band Television, agreed to produce her first two releases. An EP titled Real Boy in 1999 was well received by college radio audiences in the U.S. and Canada. It was at this point Alpha Cat made the decision to let the photography go and focus on music. Following the Real Boy EP, McCullough and Smith reunited to collaborate on a follow-up CD, Pearl Harbor, in October of 2001. Unfortunately this was in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and with an image of a bomb on the cover and the sound effects of a glass building falling down, this CD was not well received initially. Upon re-release in February 2002, it did much better, receiving significant airplay on college radio, and winning a couple "Best Of" awards.
After an extended hiatus due to health related issues, Alpha Cat has now returned with Thatched Roof Glass House (Aquamarine Records). It includes seven songs completed with the help of engineer and co-producer Jon Mattox, guitarist Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams, John Mayer), Reggie McBride (Elton John) and Chris Butler (The Waitresses) on bass, Jason Harrison Smith (Albert Lee, Kelly Sweet, Ian Andersen) on drums and co-production, and Fred Smith as co-producer. The album was then mixed and mastered by post-production legend Brett (Cosmo) Thorngren.
August 21st will be the retail street date for Alpha Cat's Thatched Roof Glass House and a North American radio and press campaigns have already been launched. Mainstream Alternative Rock and Triple A radio stations have also been serviced with the single, Mona Lisa In A Comic Book.
