Multi award-winning Americana/folk artist, Cathy-Anne McClintock,
showcases her unique vocal styling along with her well crafted, personal songs creating a
beautiful outcome that she'd describe as folk/pop/bluegrass fusion. Cathy-Anne's first
solo CD features 13 songs with Grammy Award Winning bluegrass/folk legends, Tim O'Brien, John Reischman, Jim Nunally, fellow Juno-nominated Jaybirds and Juno Award Winner, Alan Doyle from renowned Canadian Celtic rock group Great Big Sea. Guitar great John Jorgenson and multi instrumentalist Stuart Duncan also lend their amazing talents to the project.
Cathy-Anne had the pleasure of performing guest spots on her sister Trisha Gagnon's highly anticipated upcoming CD alongside other folksy favorites such as Peter Rowan, Vince Gill and Chris Jones (Chris and Sally Jones). The CD will also feature fellow Jaybirds, Laurie Lewis and Kathy Kallick (Good Ol’ Persons).
She was recently nominated in the Americana/Folk category for LA Music Awards 2010, Country Category for Hollywood Music and Media Awards 2009, included in Music Connection's HOT 100 Unsigned Artists 2009, selected as one of Women's Radio Hot Up'N'Comers of 2010, and sang on camera in Oscar Award Winner Ed Zwick's, Leaving Normal.
She was invited for the second time to perform for 2010 Canadian Music Week in Toronto as well a first time appearance with her band in Austin Texas during this year’s South By Southwest. Coming off a Scotland and Ireland tour, plans are being made to head back over to Europe in July of 2010.
Along with her former group Tumbleweed, she was 9 time winner of British Columbia's Best Bluegrass Group, Country CD and Country Group, featured in Billboard, Music Connections, Country Weekly, The Record, Marquee, Disney, Showtime and HBO. Her self penned song, 'I Wanna Live Like That' has been recorded and released by a vast array of artists over 35 times internationally.
No wonder this song has had such success. This is brilliant and so honest. Great arrangement, melody and vocal. :)
