The Raven’s Sun

The Raven’s Sun takes the listener further along Catherine’s journey in song, delving deeper into the territories of life, death and transformation. Produced by her long–time musical partner Chris Gauthier, The Raven’s Sun shines a light on their musical chemistry and catches them both at their best.

Water In The Ground

Water In The Ground was released by True North Records in March 2009, the limited edition package includes a re-release of Catherine’s first solo album, Dark Dream Midnight.

“Here’s a vote for Catherine MacLellan, whose upcoming third album will melt more than a few hearts this miserable winter. Seriously, if your throat is lump-free after the devastating goodbye song ‘Flowers On Your Grave’, check your pulse. MacLellan is that good and that ready for prime time.”

Church Bell Blues

“Released independently a year ago, the album—she recorded in her brother’s home studio with just a couple of guitars because &slquo;I wanted it to be as intimate as a living room performance and we didn’t have much money&srquo;—has developed critical mass since Toronto roots music powerhouse True North Records picked it up a few months back. A follow-up to her 2004 solo debut, Dark Dream Midnight, Church Bell Blues is stark, confessional, brutally honest. Its intense narratives invite self-examination and invoke universal experiences.”
— Greg Quill, The Star (Toronto)
