Cannonball Statman emerged in March 2012 after a bizarre hand injury left an NYC-based musician writing songs with altered guitar techniques that allowed him to play with his left hand in a cast, under the name Cannonball Statman. Later that year, he formed a full band of local musicians to expand the sound of those songs, which has been performing around NY ever since. Their dark, dystopian songs draw equal inspiration from the worlds of folk and punk, and their performances are high energy and spontaneous. Cannonball Statman regularly performs the same songs as a solo act, on an acoustic guitar, with a similar emphasis on high energy. Cannonball Statman released a split CD with singer-songwriter Phoebe Novak, entitled “Dogs vs. Cats”, in addition to a small tour of the USA, in December 2013.
