HistoryEdit

2007–2013: The formation of Daydream CatapultEdit

Elle Bijet and Tom Johnson first met at a local songwriters Meetup in July of 2007. In 2008, they teamed up as Güerosmith, a Spanish-language acoustic cover act, playing at a few restaurants before their focus gradually shifted to original material. They met Chris Ray in June 2009 at an open mic hosted by Nashville's Bluebird Cafe. Ray and Bijet soon began co-writing songs (as well as dating), while Johnson undertook to create complementary guitar parts for some of Ray's instrumental pieces and to support Ray and Bijet's duets. Collaboration between the two guitarists continued long-distance during Johnson's two-year stint in Austin, Texas, and intensified following his return to Nashville in the summer of 2012. At this point, Ray and Bijet had been married for a year, composed several songs together, and were performing locally as a duo, "Chris Ray and Elle Bijet." Within a few months, Johnson became a regular guest performer at their shows until finally integrating as a full member of the band. In 2014, the trio adopted the name Daydream Catapult.
