Halifax, Canada (2000 – present)

Catherine MacLellan is a Canadian folk singer-songwriter, currently based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Before going solo, she was a member of The New Drifts from 2000 until 2003. Her solo albums include Dark Dream Midnight (2004), Church Bell Blues (2006), Water in the Ground (2009), Silhouette (2011).

MacLellan wasborn and raised in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, the daughter of award-winning Canadian songwriter Gene MacLellan. With her expressive guitar playing, beautiful melodies, and evocative vocals, MacLellan pulls the listener into her world of song. Described as having a “quietly magnetic” stage presence, Catherine’s voice stretches out and hovers in a room with a projection that is deceptively low-key, but ends up fisted in the hearts of her audience.

MacLellan was born in southern Ontario, but from a young age has lived on Prince Edward Island. Coming from a musical family (famed singer/songwriter Gene MacLellan was her father) there was never any doubt in Catherine’s mind about her life’s work. She began her musical journey early, and now at twenty-five, her strength as a songwriter, confidence on guitar, and unique voice and style set her apart.

From 2000 until 2003, MacLellan was a member of The New Drifts, contributing to their CD release, Nemesis. These days she performs as a solo artist and as a duo with long-time musical collaborator James Phillips. Catherine is also part of the popular old-time-country group, Saddle River. Touring her new album across the maritime region and through Quebec and Ontario has broadened her fan base.

    I was at Lowe's this morning in Sunnyvale, and Catherine Maclellan was playing on their intercom. It was the song "Don't Need No One," from Dark Dream Midnight. I got excited!

    Really though, her new album is a gem. One of the best voices I've heard in a long time.
