      Caitlin was amazing - but your broadcast/stream only allowed me to see 1/3 of the show After that I only got every other word and hardly any of the music. I refreshed 6 times. I just updated Adobe. This was your end. Waste

Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a 1930's Recording King guitar and 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. Produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, Reckless Skyline (January 2015) features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.

Canty's songs imbue commonplace moments and images with strange magic, wringing vastness from small details of light and shade. They convey a restless energy, a clarity of purpose and desire to live fully within elemental processes - moving light, moving water, wildfire, ashes. She sings, 'Sleeping on embers / Breathing in rivers / Waking up shivering on summer's hottest night', and becomes a part of the natural world the song inhabits.

A constant collaborator, Canty writes and performs with several bands, including Down Like Silver - her ongoing duo project with Peter Bradley Adams. Prior to Reckless Skyline, she independently released the full-length Golden Hour, a gently produced and Western-tinged album tracked live in Maine in the winter of 2012.

Both on the road and on her records, Caitlin Canty teams with some of the finest musicians in the world - including members of Morphine, Booker T, Cold Satellite, and Ray LaMontagne's Pariah Dogs - 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.
