Eden the Cat's first solo release, Amateur, was written, recorded and released all within a week while visiting the beautiful city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The album deals with the ever-confusing nature of being lonely and angry while trying to find distraction in creating things.

released September 5, 2014

Vocals, guitar, clapping, lyric-writing, recording and mixing was done by Eden in her mom's apartment in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Photography for the album cover was done by Sabrina Millis of Regina, Saskatchewan.

Some really great friends provided feedback and support: Mike Case, Kelsey McKinney, Thomas Rackowitz, Kelsey Sherer, Ryan Gantz, Ally Palanzi, and Brian Altano. You're the best.

Track Name: The Other Woman
I’m always the other woman
And I can’t get away
I try to be a good one
But then someone seems to stray

Like a cat into my arms if I tied a piece of yarn to
My hips and then I strolled along the street

I’m always the other woman
Someones always catchin’ me

Im always the the other woman
A side glare in the car
A piece of indecision that never made it far
And ‘neath the crowded seams of linens in my dreams

I’m always the other woman
Someones always catchin’ me
Track Name: Ghost
Ghost
Ghost
If you ask me to wear that wedding white
To take your name to bear a child
To bake a cake to make a pie
Return myself to a quiet life

I'll be a ghost

Ghost
If you ask me to work from 9-5
In the evening turn off my mind
And tell you that I like your jokes
And watch TV and play the host

I'll be a ghost

But I don't think you're asking for more than a night
I don't think you're asking for more than a night

Ghost

Ghost
Ghost
If I ask you to spend just one more night
And fall in love and marital plight
I just want some lazy sex
None of this domestic

You'll be a ghost

But I don't think you're asking for more than a night
I don't think you're asking for more than a night
Track Name: Used to Be
I used to be somebody with a target and a plan
But then my whim and whimsy seemed to take a larger span
but oh guess that’s how it goes

I used to be the girl who only wanted just a man
But then she peaked my interest and I came to understand
but oh guess that’s how it goes

Don’t fear nothing
I tell myself
For these are better days


I made up all these wishes for money and an office
But then the plan unfurled oh when I came to cross it
but oh guess that’s how it goes

I made a bet in high school that I’d be finally stable
But I’ve had much more fun just gettin’ into trouble
and oh guess that’s how it goes
Track Name: Sleep Alone
I don’t wanna sleep alone tonight
I can’t believe you’re gone
I keep telling myself it’s alright
But I know it won’t be long

I wait for hours
Just sittin’ by the phone
I spend my breaths
In and out of my chest
Hopin’ he’ll come back home

I don’t wanna sleep alone tonight
I can’t believe the timing
I know if I called you right now
You’d be running like water

And water is the pool of my tears
When I think of my fears all alone
I’ll keep telling myself comforts near
But I think I might be wrong

I wait for hours
Just sittin’ by the phone
I spend my breaths
In and out of my chest
Hopin’ he’ll come back home
