Cat Colada is a Brisbane-based music business specialising in Artist Management, Branding and Strategy. Founded in 2018 out of a lifetime passion of music, Cat Colada endeavours to develop artists and build careers for talented and diligent creatives.
Cat Colada is the cocktail-sipping, fur-grooming braincat of Deena Lynch. Deena stumbled into the music industry after slogging it out as a musician herself. To learn more about music business, she completed a Bachelor of Business (Marketing), went into music programming at Nightlife Music and has worked as an Artist Manager at Amplifire for the last 2 years where they look/have looked after artists such as The Jungle Giants, Confidence Man and Last Dinosaurs.
In 2018, she decided to step out onto her own side venture to further help pave the careers of talented artists through management, consulting and mentoring.
As an independent artist and taking care of producers & bands who are either indie or behind labels, she is dedicated to supporting the industry and has spoken at panels and has run workshops across Queensland for QMusic, APRA and lectures at JMC Academy.
Jaguar Jonze crafts songs of melancholic beauty woven with gun slinging guitar lines and a strikingly rich, yet intimate voice. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and Australian father, Jaguar Jonze is as eclectic as her cultural upbringing oozing influences by the likes of Portishead, The Last Shadow Puppets, Nick Cave and Angel Olsen.
Jonze’s debut single ‘You Got Left Behind’ is a driving, upbeat song suspended delicately above a breathtakingly haunting undercurrent which proved popular - landing New Music Fridays US and AU/NZ and getting spins on triple j, Unearthed and Double J.
Her first steps included showcases across Music Matters in Singapore, Australian Music Week in Sydney, International Indie Music Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia and supported Ocean Alley, Japanese Wallpaper, Charlie Collins, Philadelphia Grand Jury, CLEWS and Kingswood on a leg of their tours. She was also a finalist for the Billy Thorpe Scholarship in 2019.
An enigmatic yet vulnerable songwriter, Jaguar Jonze delivers defiant ferocity through smoky vocals that shift between fragile and forceful and a mature musicality that provides sweetness through dissonance.
