Catherine MacLellan: Out Of Time

An achingly pure voice and poetic lyrics have earned the Juno-winning PEI folk artist a reputation as a master of melancholy, and this gently haunting new single serves as confirmation.

Catherine MacLellan: Out Of Time

By Kerry Doole

Catherine MacLellan - Out Of Time (Independent): It has been four years between albums for the much-heralded and Juno-winning PEI folk singer/songwriter, but she has not been slacking.

Over that period, she concentrated on celebrating the life and legacy of her late father, famed songwriter Gene MacLellan (Snowbird). She recorded and released the album If It’s Alright WithYou: The Songs of Gene MacLellan, produced a stage show and an award-winning documentary, The Song and the Sorrow - all in tribute to him.

“It’s been an important time for me, bringing my father’s life story and music back into the world," says Catherine in a press release. “I’ve learned a lot about myself and who he was. I’m ready, though, to get back to my path and to bring these songs into the world. They’ve been waiting for me.”


These new songs will surface on her sixth album, Coyote, set for Oct. 11 release. All 14 songs were recorded and self-produced at her PEI home studio.

The first single, Out Of Time, is out now, and it is a winner. Her achingly pure voice and poetic lyrics have earned MacLellan a reputation as a master of melancholy, and this gently haunting track serves as confirmation.

MacLellan has summer shows on the East Coast and in BC. Dates here

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
