Mabel Stark (1889-1968) was a celebrated tiger trainer who worked until she was nearly 80 years old. This song was inspired by her incredible life and sheer guts, based on her fantastic obituary cut straight out of the New York Times. "Catch a Tiger" was written and recorded in a day at Blue Rock Studios.

We hope it inspires you to be fierce today!
