I’m thrilled to announce that
the latest Catharsis protest album, 
Find the Common, Shine a Light,
is now available on Greenleaf Music!

The album is our response to growing political and social turmoil, and an urgent call for change


After 6 years of regular touring and performing, Catharsis, continues to evolve our collective sound while speaking out about our troubled times on Find the Common, Shine a Light. With six years of recording and extensive touring under their belt, the band stays true to our “potent blend of cinematic sweep and lush, ear-grabbing melodies” (Los Angeles Times) while opting for a more layered and multifaceted approach in the studio.

Become The Water

If I told you here
and now is all we have,
would you still hear
me? What if we are blind,
all of us, imagining
there was a time
when great was real.

Our weakest link is fear
of losing greatness.
Get on stage
before the curtain falls,
before the blind messiah
opens fire. We are here
to elevate, to greater.

Find the common, shine
a light. Become the water.
Put out the fire.

Through all the noise,
why do we only hear
what we already know?
Why don’t we think
the other side is here
with us? Why don’t we hear
the sirens wailing for us all?

Why don’t we fight
for greater common?
Are we not here
to elevate us all?

Why do we let our fear
be greater than our greatness?
In times of fear, compassion
is an orphan. Dethrone
the blind and elevate the kind.

Find the common, shine
a light. Become the water.
Put out the fire.
