Toronto, ON – August 4, 2017 – Cat Clyde has been on a roll since the release of her debut album, Ivory Castanets. Having recently wrapped tours supporting Paul Kelly and ZZ Ward across North America, Cat will hit the road again this month to share the stage with Detroit’s renowned singer-songwriter, Rodriguez. The artist was the subject for acclaimed documentary, Searching For Sugarman. Cat will return to western Canada for shows in Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, before moving east to Peterborough, ON and Montreal, QC. See below for a complete list of dates.
Ivory Castanets was released on Friday May 5th via Cinematic Music Group. Highlight track, Chimes In The Night, premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio Show, as well as online via The FADER. The song follows her track, Mama Said, which was the first piece of music to quickly grow on streaming platforms to reach over 5 million streams, along with Like A Wave, The Meadow, and Move Along, which was featured as a Magnificent 7 track for its premiere on CBC Radio 2's The Strombo Show. Check out Cat’s live performance of The Meadow at the Calgary Stampede City Sessions here.
Cat is making waves in the music scene with her unique sound, blending contemporary and classic elements and a vast array of influences. Her music has been added to 105,000 Spotify playlists, peaking at 340.6K + monthly listeners on Spotify, with tracks featured on 96,000 Spotify playlists worldwide including: Fresh Folk, Spotify's Indie All Stars, Vintage Vibes, Women of Fresh Finds, Roots Rising, Relax & Unwind, Infinite Indie Folk, and Cool Hunting.
Cat Clyde is a new artist out of Stratford, ON. A fresh take on the classic sounds of yesteryear; breathing new life into the velvety vocal, tack-piano, slide-guitar-style that can instantly walk you through the swinging doors of a packed saloon. With influences ranging from Etta James to Janis Joplin to Lead Belly, hers is a mix that goes down smoother than a neat glass of mellow Kentucky bourbon. No longer do you need to reach for your trusty sifting pan and river boots to find gold. You just need to know one name.
It’s an old saying; time flows away like the water in a river. A comparison that has more to it than you might think at first glance. Whether it's a raging torrent or a bubbling backyard brook, both water and time can hide, obscure, and keep us from seeing some of the priceless treasures that lie just beneath the surface. The key to finding them is simply knowing where to look, and when to listen.
