Caitlin Canty is a Vermont native now based in New York City, Caitlin spent her early
years working on the production side of live music and singing backup
for more established artists while quietly cultivating her own music.
After finally escaping the cubicle, Caitlin swung around to the other
side of the microphone and now performs regularly in coffeehouses,
restored theaters, and festivals. Her fans compare her soothing voice
and soulful songs to the likes of Patty Griffin, Jack Johnson and
Norah Jones. Caitlin’s latest album, Neon Streets (2010) was produced
by the band Darlingside, and she has independently released several
EP’s and one full-length album, Green (2007).
Darlingside is a string-rock quintet based in Northampton, MA. The
band originally formed in 2007 at Williams College, where they
recorded a studio EP and shared the stage with such acts as Guster and
The Format. A two-year hiatus allowed them to finish college, juggle
their lineup, and learn to play crazy instruments like the Brazilian
bandolim and the six-string electric cello.
Having had quite enough of life not in a band, these five
multi-instrumentalists now find themselves living under one roof, with
a basement never empty of music and a sink never empty of dishes.
Their music blends cello-violin duets, soaring vocal harmonies, catchy
hooks and compelling beats. Musical influences range from Nickel Creek
to Radiohead, Beethoven to Phoenix. A new EP is slated for release
this May, but in the meantime a free track is available for download
at their website, www.darlingside.com. Don’t miss Darlingside this
spring, as they bring their bold songs to audiences across the
