My name is Colin Cooper. I believe in stories—the ones we tell and the ones we have been told from generations past. I started Cailean with longtime friend Kaity Jansma in early 2012 as a project devoted to the exploration of storytelling in the melding of Irish and American folk-rock themes.
Over the course of half a year, we spent our time writing, recording, playing, learning from, and cultivating our musical ideas into a five-song EP entitled ‘Old Salt’. The album is mastered by Grant Floering and set to release in early Autumn of 2012.
Recently we have added the talents of cellist Margaret Snider and guitarist David Simmer to our ranks in order to provide a even richer live musical experience.
Thank you for listening to and sharing our music.
