Hatchetman @ Cottage Club 18 April

Hatchetman is a dynamic trio consisting of Jono Tait , Matt and Nick Catto. Together, the three are able to conjure otherworldly harmony in a distinctly acoustic idiom. Their music is rootsy and straight from the heart. Soulful songwriting and introspective lyricism combine to draw the listener right into the nucleus of their world. There is no lead vocalist in Hatchetman. The exquisite and seamless blend of the three voices is what truly defines their sound. A fellow muso was moved to comment that “we haven’t heard that sound since Crosby, Stills and Nash!” Influences range wildly, from Neil Young, CSN and The Beatles to Sting and the Red Hot Chili Peppers; there’s truly something for everyone.  Jono Tait – vox, guitar Nick Catto – vox, bass Matt Catto – vox, cajon

These fine Songwriters join forces on a project of co-writing entitled “Scarecrows in a Field.”

“A band of them: reclusive half-forgotten Balladeers are scattered around South Africa. Weathered, weary dressed all in black with gravediggers’ hats; they’ll pass around Tales… and Prophesy with uncanny accuracy and historicize with earthy rhythms, the stories of South African Folk….all the people in this, the strangest of places” Alice Inggs, Rolling Stone Magazine.  https://www.facebook.com/Billknightsingersongwriter
