BIO
Tom “Satch” Kerans is a singer, songwriter and guitarist drawing on such influences as Graham Parker, Peter Case, Bob Dylan, and Barry and The Remains. The founder and front man of the Boston based band the Catalinas, he has opened shows for Little Steven Van Zandt, NRBQ, Charlie Sexton and South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. In fact, Kerans opened a show for Roy Orbison four days before the legendary singer’s untimely death. Though Kerans took a hiatus from recording throughout most of the 90’s, he has returned with a vengeance, and his output has been nothing short of prolific. Kerans was recently named a “River Rising Star” by Boston radio station 92.5 The River.

In a feature story that ran on May 22, 2009, Boston Globe music critic Jonathan Perry wrote, “years after settling into an entirely different identity and new set of priorities - reemerges with some of the best songs he's ever written… nodded in sound and temperament to his longtime heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, as well as ex-Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn and Mark Knopfler. At the collection's core was a clutch of sturdy melodies and classic pop structures”.

Kerans released his solo debut, “Elliot St.” in April of 2005 to rave reviews. The Boston Globe heralded the record as “a vibrant solo debut..a jangle-infused power-pop collection that recalled early Tom Petty and Dwight Twilley”. Phil Suggitt of Shindig Magazine declared, “In short, this is a little gem…Kerans’ sound is slightly reminiscent of the vagabond rock troubadour style of Willie Nile with elements of Petty and McGuinn- which is high praise not criticism.” Jeff May at the Noise cited “…great songs and old-fashioned chops.” Eric Sorensen at Fufkin.com declared simply, “Long may you run, Sir Satch!”. The title track, “Elliot Street” was selected for NPR’s “All Songs Considered-Open Mic” as well as the compilation “Wicked Hawt Spectacular” #6 also featuring Bronson Arroyo of the Boston Red Sox. In addition to the songs on “Elliot Street”, Kerans contributed a new song, “Dark Side of Dawn”, to David Bash’s “International Pop Overthrow V.9” compilation. Demonstrating his versatility as a writer, the socially conscious “Viva la Revolucion!” surfaced on a segment of Neal Young’s website-“Living With War Today”-devoted to songs protesting the war and the t Bush administration.

Hearing a roots-rock sound for his next project, “Riverboys”, Satch turned to Hi-N-Dry Studio in Cambridge, the studio founded by the legendary Mark Sandman of Morphine. Kerans also enlisted the help of some prominent Boston musicians including Sal Baglio (guitar and vocals on “Harrison Avenue”). Dana Colley (sax on “Riverboys”) and Tom Janovitz (vocals on “Big Love”). Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Morphine, Radiohead) handled the mixing at Camp St. Studio in Cambridge. “Riverboys” was released in early 2008 and was well received. The Boston Globe noted, “ Like most of his solo work, the bittersweet title track to "Riverboys&quo
