Cat Clyde

Hunter’s Trance


SARAH AVRIN // Publicist


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.

Cat Clyde, a new artist out of Stratford, Ontario. 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.

Her hit single “Mama Said” has over 6 million streams on Spotify alone. Cat’s debut album, Ivory Castanets, came out May of 2017. In just one year, she has toured alongside ZZ Ward, Joe Purdy, Paul Kelly, and Rodriguez, subject of the critically acclaimed “Searching for Sugar Man” documentary in 2012.

In 2018, Cat Clyde set out for her first ever European trip opening up for Shakey Graves on a sold out tour. Her sophomore album Hunter’s Trance was released in June 2019.
