To find out more, read her exclusive interview with us below, and check her out on her social medias!
How did you first become interested in music?
CAITLIN: "I would spend all summer exploring my grandpa's music collection. I was so intrigued by all the music and all of the sounds. I would spend all day singing and dancing. My grandpa really ignited my love for music by telling me so many stories about the songs and musicians."
Who are some of your musical influences?
CAITLIN: "Billie Holiday, Robert Johnson, Paolo Nutini, Patsy Cline, and Otis Redding are some of my musical influences."
You recently released your sophomore album Balancing Act – can you tell us a little about the process creating it?
CAITLIN: "Cameron Tyler (co-producer) and I initially were building a catalog of songs. Eventually, we realized some of those songs should be an album for me. It was a very liberating process- it called for a lot of growth and hard work."
What song on the album are you most proud of?
CAITLIN: "I am most proud of Wolf Cry - it was written to empower and inspire. I can't think of any reason better for a song than that."
Was there a specific song on the album that you had a difficult time creating?
CAITLIN: "Michelangelo was the most difficult to share and create. It was the last song added to the album but one of the first ones created. I re-wrote the very end of the chorus and then decided I would send it out to the world with the rest of this album."
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
CAITLIN: "I would love to collaborate with Paolo Nutini. I love his voice and his eclectic musical style. I think it would be such a cool collaboration."
Is there anything we can expect from you in the near future?
CAITLIN: "I plan to release two more music videos for this album and release a new single. I will be touring Europe at the beginning of next year, and I will be playing shows in LA, Nashville, and a few other cities the rest of this year."
