After releasing her debut album in 2004, Catherine MacLellan earned immediate critical acclaim, labeled Critics Favourite New Discovery by Penguin Eggs magazine in 2008. Since then, she has toured internationally extensively and her music has been a perennial fixture at the top of Canada’s Roots Music charts, winning acclaim from international media including The Austin Chronicle, The Boston Globe, BBC Radio, Maverick Magazine and Q Magazine.
Her latest release, The Raven’s Sun, takes the listener further along Catherine’s journey in song, delving deeper into the territories of life, death and transformation. Produced by her long–time musical partner Chris Gauthier, The Raven’s Sun shines a light on their musical chemistry and catches them both at their best.
Recorded in the woods outside of Woodstock, NY by GRAMMY Award–winning Danny Blume, it features stellar guest performances by Nashville fiddler Andy Leftwich. This album is another reminder that Catherine’s songwriting and musicianship are unparalleled among performers of her generation.
Multiple ECMA, Music PEI, Canadian Folk Music and Juno award-winner Catherine MacLellan will soon be releasing and touring her new album If it’s Alright with You — The Life and Music of My Father, Gene MacLellan, paying tribute to her late father, singing his songs and telling his life-story. Gene MacLellan is best remembered for the international hit songs ’Snowbird’ – that he wrote for Anne Murray – and ‘Put Your Hand in the Hand’ – written for Ocean in the early 1970s.
