I am a 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Manchester, UK, who creates electronic pop music with heartfelt, autobiographical lyrics. My songs are written about my own experiences, which I think gives my music an honesty that is not always seen in commercial pop music, making it easy for people to relate to. I have been writing songs at the piano since the age of 15 and released my first single, Stuck In Limbo, in 2015 following my graduation from university.
“Manchester singer/songwriter Sally Caitlin’s voice glides across an electropop landscape in the club track “Lead Me Down.” Her strong honeyed voice is a pleasure to listen to.” – R8 Singer Blog
“‘Lead Me Down’ makes Caitlin sound like a female version of Flawes; dark electrifying beats and tastey pop synths fused with narrative lyrics create the ultimate pop tune.” – Indie Central Music
The title of the EP, ‘Experiments’, has a triple meaning as it refers to: the experimentation with styles and sub-genres on the EP, the experimental nature of growing up and making mistakes (featured in the lyrical themes) and also a reference to the Chemistry Degree I completed before entering the music industry. There is also a narrative woven between the tracks which appears if you listen to the tracks in order of the track list. Whilst rooted in pop, I think the wide range of genres that influenced ‘Experiments’ is obvious, resulting in a varied and mature selection of electro-pop songs with an edge.
The Experiments EP has been supported by several radio stations so far including Unity Radio Manchester, Identify Radio, Shout Radio, and Salitaire Radio and I have recorded acoustic sessions for Unity, CAT Radio and Fuse FM. I was also one of five grand finalists in the Pure Radio’s Stockport’s Finest Competition in 2016. Videos have been shot for all five of the tracks on the EP and will be released in order of the EP’s track list on blogs and social media. I was also really happy to hear that all five tracks from the Experiments EP were semi-finalists in the UK Song-writing Contest for 2016 across various categories.
Lead Me Down was released on all major digital distributors on February 16th and Experiments will be released on April 27th. You can find me performing around the Manchester and Cheshire areas and debuting new material at showcases and open mic nights. I am also going to be performing in Camden as part of the Camden Clique showcase for emerging talent on May 19th.
