Welcome to the world of Cait. A modern take on the classic singer/songwriter, Cait offers a hypnotic sensory escape to her listeners, somehow leaving them warmer, lighter, and painted with a subtle golden hue. Colorful guitars, genuine lyrics, warmly textured piano and unforgettable melodies combine to create a heartfelt and invigorating sound that Billboard describes as “raw emotion and an angelic vocal performance.” Drawing on her experience as an in-demand visual artist and photographer, Cait pairs her brand of honest pop with dreamy atmospheres full of stunning imagery that is distinctly her own.
A native of Madison, Wisconsin turned Los Angeles lover, Cait is an artist in multiple realms. Since graduating with a full scholarship from Berklee College of Music, Cait has worked behind the scenes as a writer for a range of artists from indie to major label. A creative force and a storyteller by nature, Cait not only writes & independently releases her own music, but is the sole visual creator for her music career: designing her own single artwork, producing her own photoshoots, filming, directing and editing her own music videos and online visual content. Having spent years as a videographer creating compelling video marketing for global brands and entrepreneurs,Cait’s eye for the visual has translated into her music career: creating an immersive brand for her art that is unmistakable.
“Genius” is Cait’s newest single in which colorful lyrics are painted over a dreamy pop soundscape. It’s that summery, glittery, roll-your-windows-down kind of song you’ve been waiting for. And it’s just in the nick of time as the weather starts to get warmer and the sunsets become more striking. The song revolves around the idea that humans are evidently complicated, messy, and intricate. So when someone manages to find their way through your maze and sees you clearly in all your imperfect glory, that must make them a genius.
The track gives us a look into the beauty and vulnerability in Cait’s own relationship and what it feels like for someone to see you better than yourself. Produced by Brian Phillips, the track paints a work of art that you’re unlikely to forget.
A breezy atmosphere is created with airy percussions and warbling sounds, so this literally is a roll-your-windows-down type of song because there is no way you’re not feeling a breeze with this soundscape. Personally, it transports me to my imaginary beach house (please, an actual vacation home in this economy?) where the ocean wind flutters through windchimes. To go with the picturesque sounds, Cait offers up enchanting lyrics that illustrate the song’s message in dulcet tones. There’s a sway in her voice that matches perfectly with the instrumental, creating a harmonious and enjoyable melody. Her lyrics convey the amazement and embrace she feels from having her whole self be appreciated. There’s an undeniable vibrance in this song that carries the emotive message over the fantastic production, making this a must listen!
