Caitlin Canty creates her own material on her 1930s Recording King guitar – which she describes as like “having another person in the room,” and delivers her songs with a dusky alto, painting the line between joy and pathos with uncanny precision and power. 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 the Artists Den. A constant collaborator, Caitlin writes and performs with several bands including Down Like Silver, her ongoing duo project with Peter Bradley Adams. She is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee.
While she was out on the road in support of her 2015 release ‘Reckless Skyline’ (produced by Jeffrey Foucault), she and Jefferson Hamer stopped by Beehive Studios in Saranac Lake, New York, for an in-studio performance and to talk about the new album, happy videos of little girls singing “Get Up” and her move to Nashville.
