Catbath

Catbath, a three-piece rock outfit hailing from Minneapolis, MN, began in the basement of Travis Franklin and Crystal Stockert’s south side duplex. The duo began mining the arsenal of songs Franklin had been stockpiling. They were eclectic, drawing from disparate genres and eras of rock—from sixties garage pop to grunge to metal. However, the common thread binding them together could not be obscured; the songs were chock-full of undeniable melodies and irrepressible pop hooks.

Bassist Kristin Kosieracki was soon enlisted to round out the group and realize the lush vocal harmonies Stockert envisioned for the band. Catbath has shared the stage with countless Minneapolis acts—perhaps most notably punk legend Grant Hart—as well as national groups such as The Polyphonic Spree. Catbath’s purring harmonies, roaring screams and hissing fuzz and feedback, are as fresh and bracing to the ears as a rough cat’s tongue to the cheek.
