Melissa McClelland is a Canadian singer-songwriter who covers a lot of musical territory, from the bluesy rock of Glen Rio and Money Shot to the jazzy vaudeville of God Loves Me. Her third album Victoria Day will appeal to Tom Waits and Bonnie Raitt fans

The album contains two different takes of the title track. The Motown horns augmented version for rain in April, and the swagger for May. Melissa McClelland sings with ease and has the stage presence to shut up the guys discussing sports in the back of the hall. And yes, that's Ron Sexmith singing harmony on Seasoned Lovers.
