Waiting Room

Song of the Week: CATSELF - Waiting Room
Catself lives in Espoo, Finland, tours everywhere she can and accompanies herself on the guitar and piano. Her songs are catchy, her lyrics intelligent and she has a beautiful voice. Her stories are different and very original, often nature oriented. Don't expect sad love stories or other clichés from her.

Catself has recorded her debut album in Preisner Studio in Poland, accompanied by Poland’s folk band, Saint Nicholas Orchestra. The album was recorded and mixed by Tadeusz Mieczkowski, one of Poland's leading sound engineers. Catself had raised over €40,000 via crowdfunding to fund this project. A big part of her budget, meant for physical CDs and sending them to the album funders, got lost when the crowdfunding company went bankrupt, which has been delaying the release. Catself is looking for a good record label to release her album with.

Below you can watch a very nice video (recorded at Aalto University campus in Espoo, Finland) Catself made for this song. On her YouTube cannel she has posted many more of her original videos, including one of the songs from the upcoming album.
