John Cate has written more than 300 songs and recorded 7 albums. His songs have been featured in many films and TV shows. He created and hosted the Americana Showcase at the House of Blues in Cambridge which ran for 8 years. The new CD release from John Cate and The Van Gogh Brothers is entitled "The Wonder Show", and contains new songs said to tell stories about side shows and religion at the Turn-of-the-Century. Cate's troop returned to Studio Bopnique in Chelmsford, MA to work with producer Anthony Resta and engineer Karyadi Sutedja recently, and critical previews have considered this latest release, which debuts on February 6 at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA, to be his best yet.
The Wonder Show is available on iTunes and on CD at the release event, where Cate will perform selections from the new album.
