A Passionate Rock Musical that Exposes Dark Secrets Hidden Within the Heart, Mind, and Soul.
These are my confessions
Secrets of my mind
Everything that mattered
Truth I can not hide
Nothing but a shadow
What I was, What I am
What I’m supposed to be
Forgive me, God, forgive me
For being so unkind
Cynical and blind
To those who thought they knew me
And those who never did
To those who hear my songs
In the places where they live
I offer my confessions
Honest to the core
Offer my confessions
There won’t be anymore

"[This Song is for My Mother] exemplifies the depth of emotion that children have for their mothers, evoking a strong sense of nostalgia with soft-spoken lyrics that serve as a reminder to cherish them while they are still here.
With its gentle acoustic guitar, mournful violin, and subdued piano accompaniment, it creates a beautiful musical landscape to express feelings of respect, awe, and admiration toward someone who gave so much."
- Little Corner of a Music Lover, Raelyn Tran, Top 17 Sad Songs About Losing Your Mom (Lyrics) in 2023
"[This Song is for My Mother] is a touching tribute to Catman Cohen’s mother and it is a song about his grief of losing her. He talks about how he wishes that he could tell her one more time how much he loved and appreciated her while she was alive.
He also shares the pain of not being able to say goodbye, which makes it all the more heartbreaking. The song is an emotional reminder to cherish and appreciate the time we have with those closest to us before it’s too late."

- Courtney, Devoted to Vinyl, 11 Songs About Losing Your Mom to Help You Cope and Heal
"The title says it all. Catman wrote [This Song is for my Mother] after the death of his mother. It expresses all of the regrets of not being there for her."
- Liam F., Music Grotto, 51 Best Songs About Death To Grieve To
"I don't even know who Catman Cohen is in fact no one knows who Catman Cohen is but he sent me the track [Fireworks Hill] and asked me to sing on it..."
- Francis Dunnery, July, 2012, in an interview with Dominic Beaumont re: Fireworks Hill
"Daring, ambitious, and high-concept... Cohen's polished production is a world unto itself, a beautiful nightmare whose wry humor and inky darkness make it a strong candidate for Off-Broadway."
- Music Connection Magazine
"Confessions of a Shadow is a musical that looks to blow the roof off of the genre – it is a once in a lifetime experience for listeners and those that crafted the effort. Give it a go today. Rating: 9.1/10"
