Emerging band, Cata9tales, is using their principle “channeling hurt into hope” to help the family of one of their close friends.
The musically adventurous band designed and is selling T-shirts in memory of one of their dear friends, Jamie Satterfield, who recently passed away. “Jamie was a massive supporter and one of the sweetest, most vibrant people you would ever meet,” said Cata9tales frontman, Berkley Priest.
Because of Jamie’s nickname, the T-shirt reads, “We heart Cherrybomb.”
“It’s a term of endearment,” Priest explained. “She had a great, kind spirit and was definitely a firecracker, so we are honoring that with the shirt.”
The band will be releasing their latest album in October, according to Priest.
“Hello Maybe Everything” will be dedicated to two of its biggest angels, Korbin Drake LaFluer and Jamie Satterfield.
“It is a nod to the people that mean a lot to us and who will be missed dearly,” the frontman shared.
With the band covering the cost of production, all proceeds from the sales of the shirts will be donated to the Satterfield family to help with medical expenses. In addition to the sales of T-shirts, The Happy Oyster will be having a spaghetti dinner on July 1 with all proceeds going to the family.
