Cathy-Anne McClintock / Press

“Cathy-Anne McClintock’s Canadian Music Fest set was a unique breath of fresh air, blending folk, country and bluegrass influences with pop and adult contemporary. The self-titled debut solo CD, which is stunningly produced by McClintock and award-winning songwriter Steven McClintock. The album has some pretty impressive contributors, including Grammy Award-winning bluegrass/folk legend Tim O’Brien and fellow Canadian Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea). The songs on the album and live show are honest and memorable, including “How Can We Be Friends,” “I Wanna Live Like That,” “Crazy Bout You” and her softer,gentler version of “Strong Enough” that Sheryl Crow made popular. This beautiful Canadian living in the U.S. has won a ton of awards internationally. “Who Knew” is another song of Cathy-Anne’s that made me wish I knew about this talent long before now, however, it definitely won’t be the last we see of her.”

“This artist is so unique. Her band was totally organic with stand up bass, light acoustic percussion and a fiddle player. The crowd went nuts over her and gave her an encore, making her one of only two who received that kind of ovation at this event. Nominated LAMA Americana Artist of the Year.”

“I Wanna Live Like That – Cathy-Anne McClintock w/Tim O’Brien: This track is one of the many fine songs that are on McClintock’s recently released debut album and any song that includes Bluegrass/Americana icon Tim O’Brien will easily warm our hearts but this one’s extra special .”

“Extraordinary honest-to-goodness homespun warmth oozes from this artist.All of her recordings are subtly arranged and nearly perfect in sound clarity, presenting in hi def the artist bluegrass honestly and authenticity.”

“With a breath of Canadian fresh air, Cathy-Anne effortlessly stakes her claim on this album, without the need for comparison. Elegance and soul.”

Fred Mollin - Grammy/Juno Award winning record producer, film and TV composer

“Profound and poignant, each lyrical line hits a familiar and relatable chord while conjuring up feelings from a particular stage in a person's life.The lyrics are woven into the fabric of an undeniably Bluegrass style.”

"Americana" is a much over-used label; but in this case it wraps itself like a down comforter around British Columbia's 9-time winner of "Best Country Group," Best Bluegrass Group," and "Best Country CD."
