Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930’s Recording King guitar. Her music veers between earthy country, downtrodden blues, contemplative folk, and thunderous rock. 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 breakout 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. It has 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.” Her songs imbue commonplace moments and images with strange magic, wringing vastness from small details. They convey a restless energy, a clarity of purpose and desire to live fully within elemental processes – moving light, moving water, wildfire, ashes. She creates a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the very heart of American music, tempered with a voice that is both haunting and distinct.
