Cat Clyde: All The Black

The singer/songwriter from Stratford has quietly gained a large international following. This new cut is a slow burning slab of sparse and soulful folk, while the accompanying video has a dark edge evocative of David Lynch.

Cat Clyde: All The Black

By Kerry Doole

Cat Clyde - "All The Black" (Cinematic Music Group): In a quiet under-the-radar way, this Stratford, ON, singer/songwriter has begun to gain wide international recognition.


Since the release of her 2017 debut album, Ivory Castanets, she wrapped tours supporting Paul Kelly and ZZ Ward across North America, shared the stage with Detroit’s renowned singer-songwriter, Rodriguez (Searching For Sugarman), rocked a sold-out tour in Europe with Shakey Graves, and made her first headline run across Canada. 

Her music peaked at 340.6K + monthly listeners on Spotify, with tracks featured on 96K Spotify playlists worldwide including many of the biggest roots lists around.

Soul, folk and blues strains coalesce in her rootsy sound, and she cites the likes of Etta James, Janis Joplin, and Lead Belly as influences. It is the power of her voice that will first ensnare you. That is showcased vividly on this new single, a slow burning slab of sparse and soulful folk. The accompanying video has a dark edge evocative of David Lynch.

Cat Clyde is back on the road this month with Toronto band, Wild Rivers, stopping in Toronto, Hamilton, Montreal, Quebec City, Kingston and London. Dates here

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
