New Album Available Now!
In honor of the first anniversary of the Occupy movement, Catherine has made a digital download of her highly anticipated new album "America" available today!
In the fall of 2011, singer-songwriter Catherine Feeny travelled from her home in Oregon to the financial district of New York City to sleep in a small privately-owned public park as part of the Occupy Wall Street protest. She staid for 5 weeks, getting to know some of the other hundreds that were there, sharing ideas, and gaining new understanding. It was a roller coaster -- from the dizzy excitement of communing with thousands of people in Times Square and Washington Square Park, to the frightening confrontation of brute force as she was arrested in Zuccotti Park.
This galvanizing experience inspired Feeny's fourth solo album. A bold and haunting statement about a nation on a precipice, "America" deftly juxtaposes the fragile beauty of hope with the menace of arrogance and corruption.
The album is available for download now at Bandcamp for just $7. Includes lyrics and making-of photos not available elsewhere.
