The Catman Chronicles 1
Haunting and sexy songs like you would find in a Donnie Darko film
I'll take a bullet from a gun
A knife wound in my chest
That's how I want to die
Just like a Catcher in the Rye

(From the Urban Dictionary)
"Catman Cohen’s “The Crime of Being Me” is a song about his long-time conflict with his brother. This song is a great reminder that we should all love and accept each other."
- Emily Hughes, MusicalMum, 20 Songs About Brothers
"Cohen pictures a narrator wandering through a town, searching for his father. Even as he remembers his father’s support and advice, he still can’t find him."
- Cassie Barthuly, Cake, 25+ Comforting Songs About Losing Your Dad
"It's an interesting mixture: ethereal female vocals over a vaguely new age sound layer, covered with gritty street lyrics and a gravelly voice back-up..."
- Carl F Gauze, INK 19
"Catman Cohen's series of music CD's are becoming the talk of the town."
- Kat Kramer, Entertainment Today
"...one of those rare last isles of idealism. They are trying to spread their message of hope, their vision upon a better future and they keep struggling to raise awareness with the general public..."
- Joeri De Ren, Dogmatik
"Catman Cohen is a force of nature. His CD How I Want To Die is one of the most emotionally powerful works I have come across in a long time..."
- JJ Biener, Muses Muse
"Catman is deep and mysterious and he writes from his heart. I like his composition and unpredictability at times. I think he has a dark way of looking at a bright situation..."
- Ian Cole / Shauntelle Hamlett, UNSIGNED Music Magazine
"HOW I WANT TO DIE is dark and dramatic yet hopeful in its intent to inspire positive changes in a world gone bad. I hope that Catman Cohen and his crew can accomplish this high calling through their compelling songs!..."
- Laura Turner Lynch, Kweevak.com
"'How I Want to Die' would be perfect for a musical.... because the songs almost seem to be like scenes from something greater than an album..."
- Paul Zimmerman, First Coast News, ABC 25, NBC 12 (Jacksonville, Florida)
"…the darkest 75 minutes most people will experience in their entire lives. It is nothing less than a poignant reflection of America in decline, the final musical and lyrical gasps of a collapsing Empire.
And it is brilliant..."
