Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a 1930’s Recording King guitar and a dusky alto.
Her breakout record, Reckless Skyline, produced by Jeffrey Foucault, garnered glowing praise from NPR, The Telegraph and Philadelphia Inquirer, among others. Lead track, “Get Up” was nominated for Song of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards and was one of NPR’s “Favorite Songs of the Year.”
The San Francisco Chronicle lauded Canty’s, “casually devastating voice and unshakable poise” and her “easy way with folk, blues and country motifs. 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, features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.
“A casually devastating voice and unshakable poise”
“A stirring, pedal steel-powered pep talk from a Vermont-born, Nashville-bound songwriter”
“A delight… Fine songwriting on an album of 12 really strong songs”
“With her vintage guitar and rootsy rock style, Caitlin Canty makes a sound all her own on her dynamite new album Reckless Skyline”
“…Canty’s songs have an elemental sound – reflecting the influence of such songwriters as Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Johnny Cash and Tom Petty.”
