    In late 2011 Cato (artist #1 on this page) was asked to write an ambient leaning opening track for the main theatrical trailer for their film "The Iron Lady", starring Meryl Streep (who recently won the Golden Globe™ for Best Actress, and is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar™). The trailer has subsequently been viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube and many have asked about Cato's opening track. On February 28th Cato's label Kiite Records will release "They Told Me It Could Not Be Done" as a digital only release available through most leading digital music stores.
