Demo Tracks and Info


Max the Pirate Cat and friends

Max the Pirate Cat and friends is the third solo album from singer/songwriter Carys and showcases her versatility and storytelling expertise. It is a unique album that avoids categorisation – it’s just great folk music.

It tells tales and salty sea songs of cats, dogs and parrots that as one listener commented, “… is magical, like the Odyssey, except with cats and songs and no nasty gods”. 

Indeed, Carys skilfully paints on a broad canvas with colourful brushstrokes to compose catchy tunes with clever and insightful lyrics that will appeal to adults and children of all ages.

Synths, guitar and rhythms are throughout by David Wright, added whistle, melodeon and Vocals from Sophie Watson and guest appearance from Rosemary Griffith and others, and also introducing Zoe Mia Wright. 

The CD is packaged in a standard jewel case and tray with 12 page booklet. The download version contains a special 16 page booklet, both containing artwork hand-drawn by Carys especially for the album.

“There’s a whole world in here, and what a cast of characters…I’m still smiling!” (fan quote after album launch).

Carys presented the album in its entirety with support from David Wright and Captain Morgan’s Rum Do and it was a roaring success.

The entire event was filmed and we hope to have it online very soon…watch this space.

For more information please visit Carys at her website.

  1. Folk & Honey (verified owner)

    Utilizing her endearing and eccentric songwriting style, in this album Carys delivers quirky tales of the adventures of pirate cats, parrots and salty dogs!
    Entwined with obscure wit and a vivid imagination, the songs are filled with a curious humour which will entertain children and adults alike. It´s a bit like Mary Poppins introducing a cartoon animal version of Pirates of the Caribbean.

    The CD comes with a lyric booklet, so you´ve no excuse for not singing along. It´s also accompanied with some charming illustrations created by Carys herself. I think this album is going to be a big hit with the kids in the car, I suspect “bring me the treasure” might stick as a catch phrase. For me, the track Barrett the Parrot had me laughing out loud, quite a character!

    Musically it´s hard to categorise, definitely more kids / comedy / musical theatre than serious folk, but it is all good fun and you even get a quirky hornpipe instrumental in the middle. Carys describes her album as folk/rock music for cat lovers and the big kid in all of us… And through this she is certainly carving herself an interesting niche!

    Unique, entertaining, and beautifully bizarre; we´ve never come across anything quite like it.
