The artist you’ve never heard of.

Pekoe Cat is multi-instrumentalist/producer Kyle Woolven. Like the city he comes from (Belleville, Ontario) Woolven is relatively unknown, but that does not stop his drive to create and progress. With the release of his new album Jungle Cop, Woolven continues show that creativity comes first.

“I don’t like the idea of creating an entire album of the same song.”

On Jungle Cop Pekoe Cat’s multiple musical influences are certainly evident. Ranging from Tame Impala, to Neon Indian, to Passion Pit, and even a little bit of The Strokes, Woolven’s refusal to settle on a sound is beginning to form his signature sound.

His recording process is a little different for a few reasons. Recording in his basement through a couple of mics and a Tascam US-1641 audio interface that doesn’t even belong to him. It’s actually owned by his brother Sean, who (by the way) is the guitarist for indie rockers The Most Serene Republic.

“I’ve never recorded a song that is finished being written; I write and record at the same time. So even I don’t know where the songs will end up once the recording process has started.”
