Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a 1930’s Recording King guitar and a dusky alto, painting the line between joy and pathos with uncanny precision and power. Raised in small-town Vermont, she spent a decade in New York City cutting her teeth on both sides of the microphone – as a performer and as the first employee of the Artists Den. Produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, her latest record Reckless Skyline features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.
Caitlin teams up with some of the finest musicians in the world to create a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the very heart of American music, tempered with a voice both haunting and distinct. Her songs imbue commonplace moments and images with strange magic, wringing vastness from small details of light and shade. They convey a restless energy and a clarity of purpose and desire to live fully within elemental processes – moving light, moving water, wildfire, ashes. She becomes a part of the natural world the song inhabits.
