Here's more about my band Blue Hippopotamus:
Blue Hippopotamus is a three piece alternative rock dream-pop band. The vocals are lounge singer chanteuse style by Caitlin Jaene. Her voice is often compared to k.d. lang and Karen Carpenter. Caitlin is also the bassist of the band, trained classically on the upright bass. Chris Mercer creates an ocean of sound with his guitar and pedals taking the band into the shoe-gazer rock sound. Friends refer to his pedal collection as "pedal-topia". Everything dances on the beats made by drummers Rob Durham, Rich Breazzano, or John Mousseau depending on the show. Their sound has been described as Portishead and Garbage meets The Police, with a little Sigur Ros.
Blue Hippopotamus was started in 2005 by Caitlin Jaene and Rob Durham who played small clubs in NYC. Now based near Philadelphia, the band has traveled far playing clubs in LA, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, Portland, Detroit, Buffalo and North Carolina.
When Caitlin and Rob started the band they wanted to use the name of an animal with a big bottom like Caitlin's upright bass. When they learned about the ancient Egyptian blue hippopotamus artifact used to protect the dead on their way to the afterlife, they found their name. Caitlin became vegan soon after starting the band so now the name is also fitting because the hippopotamus is one of the fiercest vegans in the animal kingdom.
Blue Hippopotamus is an animal-rights supporting band. Caitlin, Chris and Rob are vegan and Rich is vegetarian. Anyone interested in literature on animal kindness can find it for free at their merch table at every show. The band often plays rescue and veg events. More info can be found on the "B Hipp to Animals" page of their website. www.BlueHippoMusic.com/bhipptoanimals
Blue Hippopotamus has a large repertoire of original music as a full band and Caitlin also likes to cover jazz standards and popular songs solo on her upright bass. Caitlin has a Patreon page (you're looking at it) where you can access digital recordings of All of the music made by Blue Hippopotamus for one price as well as older recordings, extra live videos and sensual photographs made by Caitlin. Blue Hippopotamus CDs and other merch can be purchased at www.BlueHippoMusic.com
Caitlin gets a lot of joy from learning about energy and tapping into her clairvoyance. Cindy Eyler helps her grow and open her energy more and more every day to channel inspiration and light. Blue Hippopotamus is very honored to be featured as the theme music for Cindy Eyler's life-changing eCourse "Manifesting Breakthroughs Level 2: Self-Mastery & Manifesting"! www.CindyEyler.com
