Rising Stratford, ON-based singer-songwriter Cat Clyde introduced herself to the world with her debut album, Ivory Castanets, on May 5th via Cinematic Music Group.

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.

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.

To celebrate her debut album, Cat Clyde is keeping an ongoing tour diary, and for this entry she chronicles her tour stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, and Revelstoke, B.C.!

So, Los Angeles was the first stop on the tour. I stopped at a road side stand to pick up some fresh grapefruit, oranges, and cherries. The fruit was so ripe and tasted sweeter than any fruit I had ever tasted.  I took a picture of this beautiful cactus before pulling away and continuing on.

The next place I played was San Francisco. I spent a day on Baker Beach. The weather was really beautiful and I laid in the sun and listened to the crashing ocean waves for a few hours. I made a spot by a cool shelter made of drift wood and snapped a photo. I also took another photo of the trees and exposed roots by the entrance of the beach.

After San Fran, I flew to Vancouver, where I stopped at a very cool poutine place called Belgian Fries.  I Sat on the patio in the sun, drank beer and ate pickles.

From there, I drove from Vancouver to Calgary through the beautiful rocky mountains. Stayed in a town called Revelstoke where I ate Sushi, and smelled the blooming Lilac flowers that were spread throughout the town.

On my way from Revelstoke to Calgary, I stopped for a walk on a trail called Skunk Cabbage. Again the weather was beautiful and the view, even more so. Snapped a sweet picture of the mountains and trees.
