‘So American’ To Playlist Through December 15

For the second consecutive year, 37 Records artist Cathy-Anne McClintock has been named one of Music Connection magazine’s Hot 100 Unsigned Bands & Artists of the year. But that’s not the only honor the popular industry magazine has bestowed upon the folk/americana/country singer-songwriter. Their review of her self-titled debut album has been named one of their Top 25 New Music Critiques of 2010 and will rerun in the December 2010 issue, along with the Hot 100 honor.

“Oh my gosh. What a huge honour for me and my amazing group (wouldn’t be here without them!!)…I love acoustic music, love what we do and am so happy that we can introduce people to a sound maybe they’re not as familiar with because there’s a lot of great stuff out there. I hope the new Celtic EP we’re working on is as well received!” exclaims McClintock.

McClintock was also named Musical Group of the Year at the 2010 Los Angeles Music Awards, where she was also nominated for Americana Blues Roots Artist of the Year and Americana Blues Roots Single Of The Year for her hit single “I Wanna Live Like That”, a co-write with fellow Canadian Larry Wayne Clark. has also selected McClintock’s “So American” for inclusion on their “Harmonium” playlist, airing between 8 a.m.-12 p.m. PST until December 15 on the brand-new WR Music Channel.

McClintock was recently nominated for Best Folk/Acoustic Song for “I Wanna Live Like That” at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, which took place on November 18 at The Highlands located in the Kodak Theater Complex/Hollywood & Highland Center. The HMMA recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums, the talented individuals responsible for it, and the music of both mainstream and independent artists from around the globe.

The honors, awards and nominations add to an incredible year for McClintock, including Bluegrass Inspirational Song of the Year for “I Wanna Live Like That” alongside Ricky Skaggs and Ronda Vincent at the Inspirational Country Music Awards in Nashville.

Since moving to Southern California to focus on her solo career several years ago, she established herself as a formidable performer with gigs at hotspots like House of Blues, The Canyon Club, The Brixton, Hermosa Beach Series, Genghis Cohen, The Mint, Kulaks, Hallenbecks and various special events, including Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, Sunset Serenade Series, Far West Folk Alliance, Canadian Music Week, Hermosa Beach Concert Series and the popular folk series The Living Tradition.  At a particularly memorable gig at the House of Blues on Sunset, she opened for Canadian Celtic rockers Great Big Sea for an audience comprised of fellow Canadians; one of the highlights was Russell Crowe sitting in and singing a few Johnny Cash tunes with the band. 

McClintock’s emergence as a solo artist is simply the latest triumph in a career that would make anyone want to “live like that.” Shortly after the Vancouver born and raised performer and her older sister Trisha Gagnon formed their bluegrass band Tumbleweed in the 90s, they played their first show on a slate in British Columbia with superstars Dolly Parton and Dwight Yoakam at Music 91, a government sponsored road show designed to boost tourism.

Its digital product is available in 35 different countries on over 120 separate websites… all leading back 37 Records.
