CatPeople got together in Vigo, Galicia, Spain after a fortuitous encounter between Adrián Pérez (vocals) and Fito Rodriguez (bass) at the Santi-Rock 2002 Festival. Striking up an immediate connection they began to write their first songs together. Initially playing songs closer to post-rock they recruited Paco Iglesias on drums and adopted the name Isósceles. Now calling themselves Magic Noise, the next member to join was Javier Abalo on lead guitar, giving the songs greater solidity live and contributing some really inspirational arrangements in the studio.
2005 saw a move to Barcelona and the final name change, recording the promotional CD-R, CatPeople!, leading to them being signed by independent Spanish label PuPilo Records and the management and booking agency College Artists. In May 2006 they released their debut LP Reel #1 (PuPilo Records/Popstock!).
While Adrián and Fito remain largely responsible for songwriting, the latter has chosen not to form a part of the live line-up, focusing instead on musical composition and studio work. As such Iván Fernández has been recruited on bass, bringing a robust elegance to the live shows. Last but by no means least, Raúl Muñoz, joined as “guest member” in mid 2006 playing both keyboards and guitars with an enviable ability, allowing Adrián to concentrate on a better vocal interpretation.Lead singer Adrían Peréz co-directed Radio and Behind
In February 2007 CatPeople played their first shows outside of Spain, in the Czech Republic which lead to tour extensively throughout Spain and Europe (Portugal, France, Germany, the Czech Republic) including FIB Benicassim, Europavox, Festival do Norte, Contempopranea, Sonorama y Popkomm.
CatPeople launched their second album through Pias.
