Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930’s Recording King guitar. Raised in small-town Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, 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 a live music startup. 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. Produced by Jeffrey Foucault, her breakout record garnered glowing praise from NPR, The Telegraph and Philadelphia Inquirer, among others. The San Francisco Chronicle lauded Canty’s “casually devastating voice and unshakable poise,” and her “easy way with folk, blues and country motifs.”
Both on the road and on her records, Caitlin Canty teams 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.
