There’s a new album on the way! Yessss! As I work in a flurry of furious fun with my illustrious team including the characters listed below, I will bring you into the friendly fold with snippets like this one! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel and share the love to others if you feel so inclined!
Arlene and I went strolling on a bridge one day after a soft rain had fallen. We thought we’d do a wee promo video for the release of my song Yodel. Arlene followed me around with her trusty camera phone as we ran through the song twice. What resulted after some limited but crafty editing by Arlene was this whole music video. I think it accurately represents the fun we had on the bridge that day and the fun and frolic I wish upon you every day. Have the fun! Dare to live! Doesn’t it make ya wanna yodel? 🙂

You can do magic
You pull wonderment out of thin air
You light up the night with the spark in your eye
I hear love songs that just ain’t there
You’re not mine but you land in my hand
I erupt like a chorus on high
Please brace me when I can’t stand
You make me wanna yodel
Your touch is taking me higher
It’s like hump day every day (Hump hump hump hump hump hump)
I’m lost for words of expression
(Vocalizing like a speechless maniac)
You make me wanna yodel
Revved up pressed up behind me
Your whisper rustles my hair
You kiss me like a drifter
With a reckless moment to spare
Nimble frenzy of thrills
Draw near, draw near, draw near
You crack me like a breakthrough
Making everything vaguely clear
Little old lady. little old lady, little old lady who
Diddlyeoo howdy doo
Little old lady who loves you
Bibbity bobbity boo
cuckoo cuckoo cuckoo
Buck buck buck buck
Nut n honey nut n honey nut n honey Good n plenty
A, E, I, O, U and sometimes Y
Thank you for watching!
LOVE KAT 🙂

KATBARET: Wherein I do what I want with my friends! Music! Laughter! Stories! This was the first ever live KATBARET, held at Free Times Cafe in Toronto June 2016.
I cover Arlene Paculan’s My Plea— with her help!
I cover Heather Hill’s Last Train— with her help!
One of my favourite songs to perform is Jewel’s Foolish Games.
This song is like a prodigal son for me.
It either comes off like the sound of heaven or I eff it up completely.
It is always a surprise– just like life. And I love to play it like I love to play in life!
Stay tuned for future KATBARET shows by following this blog or joining the mailing list or connecting on social media! Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and FB: @katbandoo
