Katonah is the debut album by Boston area indie rock group Apollo Sunshine, released on October 7, 2003 on spinART Records.

Background[edit]

Jeremy Black and Sam Cohen met at Berklee College of Music in 1997 while attending a summer performance program, and then met Jesse Gallagher while attending the school full-time. Their musical tastes won the approval of professor Andy Edelstein, who taught classes Black and Cohen were in. Edelstein agreed to travel to Katonah, New York four days a week to produce the band's first album, which was about to be recorded in a large shed on Black's parents' property (featured in "Before and After" photos on the album's cover and sleeve art) which was constructed in May and June 2002.[3]

Recording[edit]

Recording commenced in June and wrapped in September, with post-production completing in June 2003 in Arlington, Massachusetts.
