The Cat Empire is a six-piece band, based in Melbourne, Australia. Their sound is often described as a fusion of jazz, ska, funk and rock with heavy Latin influences. The band tour extensively throughout Australia, the US and Europe and have have released three distinct albums with the first two reaching double platinum status and the third receiving an ARIA Music Award for best world album.
Currently, the Cat Empire comprises Ollie McGill (keyboard and backing vocals), Ryan Monro (bass and backing vocals), Felix Riebl (percussion and vocals), Harry James Angus (trumpet and vocals), Will Hull-Brown (drums) and Jamshid "Jumps" Khadiwhala (decks, percussion). They also have guest musicians, who make guest appearances with the band on a recurring basis. A strong, recurrent theme of their music is a rejection of materialism, war and intolerance and an enthusiastic embrace of cultural diversity and a simple, carefree life. The band treats their fans kindly, doing things like sending out personally messaged and autographed postcards to members of their volunteer promotional teams across Australia.
The band's name was created by Felix Riebl's younger brother, Max, and its distinctive cat's eye icon was created by Ian McGill, Ollie McGill's father.
