Brothers James (bass) and John (drums) Webber have been playing music since they were teens, heavily influence by their father's love of music and playing. "Our father was a percussion player. He would make us stay up late and listen to all of his old records, and in the mornings we would see various band mates passed out on the couches as we left for school," John Webber remembers.
James and Jonathan Lennartz met in high school and became immediate friends through their love of music. Jonathan started playing and writing music in college, and has since used songwriting as an outlet for his own emotions and life experiences. Aaron Bateman, Florida native, met James in 2001, the two began jamming, along with John and Jonathan, and began forming a unique sound that represented each member's individual personality and influences.
Cattywompus is a band dedicated to American Roots music. As diverse as America itself, so is the band's musical heritage. Whether it be Rock, Country, Blues or Folk no specific genre accurately pin points Cattywompus. The four have been playing together for six years developing their craft under the influence of the Rolling Stones, Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Neil Young and countless others.
