Fat Cat Cinema

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience. 

We are a diverse bunch who’ve been brought up in different countries including the UK, Ghana, Canada, USA, Australia, and Cyprus. We were all interested in music from a very young age whether it be singing, DJing, or playing whatever musical instruments were available.

Mister P: As a kid, I was really into break dancing and Hip Hop culture. I grew up in Perth, Australia where US sailors would dock and I would swap them a tour of the city for copies of their music from their ghetto blasters. Although I was quite crap at break dancing, I seemed to have all the best beats and was the ‘go 2 guy’ for music.

Tyrrell: Much of my childhood was spent learning musical instruments as a means to beat loneliness and that led to meeting others with similar interests with whom I could create music.

wOne: When I was a kid I had a pet monkey that died and I was very sad because I was told that I ate all his bananas. Ghana.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills. 

The name, ‘Fat Cat Cinema’ appealed to us because of how unusual and unique it sounded.

Mister P: I knew I wanted to make tracks from a very early age and once I scrounged enough money for a few bits of gear, I went and learned audio sound engineering and began DJing and collaborating with other artists to produce music of my own.

Tyrrell: Having learned several musical instruments including guitar, I attended one of North America’s best colleges for music but after endless touring in a covers band, soon learned the importance of simple, energetic popular music with soul.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 

It’s very difficult to label us as any one genre since we are a collective of musicians with some core members, guests, and featured performers. We are made up of males and females, black and white, all with varied musical backgrounds who contribute as producers. Even the single, “Nothing At All” has elements of hip hop, r&b, rock and reggae. Each of us brings a little of our own experience and taste to blend into our music.

The video was shot mostly in a forest just outside of London. Although a male is telling us he feels ‘nothing at all’ in the song, the video has twisted the perspective to come from a female’s point of view and her story of love, lust, and revenge.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business. 

We’ve learned from experience that the best ideas come from a willingness to share ideas and collaborate with talented people. It’s also important to never let setbacks keep you from pursuing what’s in your heart and to just keep moving forward one step at a time.

Mister P: It’s been difficult to adapt to the industry’s shift from selling music as a product to offering it as a service. It can be very difficult to make a living but the audience reaction to our live shows always makes it seem worth the struggle.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal. 

Passion for music can outweigh any number of years of experience and we have no shortage of passion.

wOne: The future goal is to make everyone feel love and be happy through our music.

Mister P: My future goal is to making this project massive and being able to have fun and be happy while making a living from what I’m passionate about!

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing. 

Mister P: Life, people, places, good music and I have to admit the competition in trying to achieve something that feels nearly impossible, when everyone is telling you to give up.

We are often inspired by music and events surrounding us but occasionally a tune may come from a dream. Then the only difficulty is trying to keep it in mind long enough to record it somehow!

wOne: The love energy!

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

Mister P: There is so many views on this one, I think it’s about music which has a lot of emotion and catchy melodies, performances from the heart and arrangements that keep you interested, I also think it’s about having a familiarity factor as people don’t seem to have the time to give things a chance.

Tyrrell: Originality yet familiarity. The simplicity of a nursery rhyme with the depth and nuance of a symphony.

wOne: Let it come from the heart.

.

.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there. 

Tyrrell: Sing along with us and enjoy the moment.

wOne: Feel the music!

Mister P: Live in the moment and support good and real music.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist. 

Find what you’re good at then do everything possible to become even better at it. Then never let anyone’s criticism hold you back from doing what you love.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 

We prefer to maintain an element of mystery! Listen to our music and everything you need to know is right there.

We prefer to maintain an element of mystery! And let it be all about the music rather than us.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

Mister P: Happiest days, when both my kids where born, the day I met my wife and the first time I heard my music out! Saddest Days when two of my friends died, one from a drug overdose and his brother from a motorcycle accident.

I’m also very sad to see children hurt in any way but mostly by war and poverty mainly cause by people being greedy.

Tyrrell: Happiest: randomly driving down the road on holiday and hearing our song on the radio. Saddest: saying goodbye to a loved one.

wOne: Day I was born! The saddest day has not happened yet!

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

Mister P: Quite easily, a million will not get you far these days!  But yes it would be nice to have, I would help my family financially and I would invest back into Fat Cat Cinema as I understand it needs a lot of marketing, also build a new studio! Of course I would have to invest in traveling and a lot of truffle pasta, a bar that sits near the infinity pool under the palm trees, you get the idea!

Getting our family and friends out of debt is a big priority and inevitably, anything left over would go straight back into the recording and marketing of Fat Cat Cinema.

wOne: The latest very very very very fast car!
