Fat Cat Affair

An international cat of mystery, Fat Cat has spent years touring Europe, moving from city to city. A multi-instrumental, multi-genre, funktastical cat-beat monster!

He has lived and worked in the smoky jazz bars of Paris, the sweaty rock clubs of Hamburg, underground blues joints in Warsaw and been part of the new cool in Camden, London.

This is one of Fat Cat’s most emotional songs to date.

I wrote this with a fellow band member as a tribute to a beautiful singer we used to work with. The track is a smooth RnB Gospel memorial a homage to love lost and opportunities missed.


BACHTEL is a wholehearted lover of God. He is committed to seeing Gen Z set free through the power of the Holy Spirit, and made radical, lovesick, set apart followers of Jesus.

I Lack No Good Thing is a declaration of the fullness of life that I have found in God. This is a song Inspired by psalm 23! This is an upbeat song filled with celebration.

Tina Glasneck

Love and Lossa rock ballad, weeps emotion as it grapples with the idea that sometimes, love isn’t enough. But ‘Love and Loss’ is more than just a sad song – it’s a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there is hope. It’s a reminder that we are strong enough to survive heartbreak and that we can find the strength to move on and heal.

Inspired by his own life experiences, Rootspence creates engaging, dynamic music that seeks to inform and inspire listeners.

Now Meet … Ubuntu, the newly born, bantu-inspired sexy, happy, and chill side of Rootspence.

I went beyond the limits of reggae music to boldly emphasize the African vibes and mood by exploring the depths of Afrobeat and dancehall music. The song is a feel-good jam with lovely vibe, melody, and catchy lyrics. Ubuntu is the first single from my debut EP “Hello Summer”.

From the first beats of opening track ‘Ubuntu’, my sense of joy at the world is evident. The lyrics and title reflect the wisdom of ‘Ubuntu’, an ancient African philosophy meaning humanity towards others — something that percolates throughout each track of the EP.

Faith and community prove to be strong forces throughout Rootspence’s music.


How did the sound of “Human” take shape in the studio?

Musicians Dom Brown, Jamiroquai, Matt Catlow, and Corine did it all virtual, which is quite remarkable. Anna also was the project manager and reached out to her musician friends to work on the tracks. Everyone had a role and it turned out great. I recorded locally in Virginia — the rest was in the UK. Jamiroquai’s world-class keyboard player Matt Johnson worked on “Amazing Grace.” Matt Catlow is superstar, and Dom Brown, his style, talent is sublime. I look back at all this as think “Wow, God, only you could of put this together with so many gifted people.” When you’re a fan of theirs, it blows your mind.

Moon Rovers

WHAT IS a Moon Rovers Band? This is a breath of fresh air in an airless space. A team that is able to decorate even the most dull and lifeless place, see the positive in the ordinary and turn not the best day of your life into a holiday.

These guys take the stereotypes associated with the bright moments of life and transfer them to where they don’t seem to belong – a beach in the snow, Vegas in the countryside, a red carpet in a provincial cinema. They know how to add color to a colorless reality! Why do people trust them? Because this gang knows how to enjoy life in the dumbest places in the universe.
