Catamaran's Best of 2015 Playlist

Hey everyone,

2015 has been an exciting year for us, and we can't stop thanking you for all the continued support. We are wishing our fans a Happy New Year with a Best of 2015 playlist. A lot has happened this year, from performing at KXT Summer Cut with Belle & Sebastian, to opening for The Polyphonic Spree at Granada Theater. We had to say goodbye to Alec, who had a beautiful baby girl this summer and welcomed our newest member John Warwick to the group. Tom got engaged, Chris graduated, and Stephen travelled to the other side of the world.

Other than that, we are spending our evenings writing new music, taking a short break from shows to focus, and listening to all the great new music released this year.

We put together a playlist with each of our top three tracks from 2015. We’ll also be posting some #bestof2015 photos we found on a shitty disposable camera taken to all our shows (with a few of you in there). Follow us on Instagram to see our favorite #CatamaranLooksBack moments.

Enough talk, now go listen to our top tracks from 2015!

Music & Brews

You know just playing on a truck bed.

Catamaran and Dallas band Oil Boom got a good sun tan this weekend as tons of people came out to the Historic Bishop Arts District this weekend for the 5th annual Brew Riot. 60 homebrewers with over 200 different beers participated. Great weather, tasty beer, fun music and a huge crowd!

Thanks Go Oak Cliff for having us out!

Good Wood

Found a ton of awesome wooden planks near Stephen's place in great condition. Spent the entire Sunday cutting it down and building new custom shelving for the practice space.

We have some left overs we wanna get rid of, if anyone can use it let us know.

Here's a pic of Stephen building like a man.

"All Around" Getting Radio Play

KXT 91.7, our favorite member supported radio station in North Texas, is playing our first single pretty consistently every week. Tune in or stream online and you might catch it!

It's a special feeling hearing your song on the radio for the first time. We aren't too cool to act like we're not excited, especially when just our first debut single is sharing radio waves with our greatest rock heroes on our favorite station. We couldn't be happier.

In addition to 91.7 KXT, All Around was highlighted a few Sundays in a row on 102.1 The Edge as part of "The Local Edge" which showcasing new local music. Also big thanks too Deep Ellum Radio for the airplay and kind words of excitement. We can't wait to  share more new music with you later this year.
