Hailing from the Quad Cities, The Multiple Cat started in 1994 as a vehicle for the audio engineer, singer, songwriter, and producer Patrick Stolley. Over the course of 3 full length albums, 2 EPs and numerous singles on labels such as Zero Hour, Guilt Ridden Pop, Plow City and his own record label Futureappletree, The Multiple Cat became known for their complex and addictive American pop music.
Stolley eventually turned his energy towards his studio also named Futureappletree which led to him becoming a founding member of Daytrotter.com along with being the principal recordist. During his stint as engineer, Stolley has recorded over 600 bands including sessions with Vampire Weekend, The Magic Numbers, David Bazan, Low, The National, Dirty Projectors, Spoon, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, etc.
In 2013 The Multiple Cat have returned with their first new recordings in over a decade, honed from constant studio work, the LP “The Return of The Multiple Cat” features the first single and video “The Hill Pt. 1,” and is scheduled for a late spring release on Futureappletree/Guilt Ridden Pop.
