Singer-song­writer Caitlin Canty due in Rock Hall

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

ROCK HALL — Singer-song­writer Caitlin Canty will bring her coun­try, blues, folk and rock to the Main­stay at 8 p.m. Satur­day, July 9.

Canty de­liv­ers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930s Record­ing King gui­tar. Raised in small­town 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 a live mu­sic startup.

Her break­out record, “Reck­less Sky­line,” fea­tures an all-star band on 12 songs that veer be­tween coun­try bal­lads and straight-up rock­ers, dark blues and sparsely ar­ranged folk. The San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle lauded Canty’s “ca­su­ally dev­as­tat­ing voice and un­shak­able poise” and her “easy way with folk, blues and coun­try mo­tifs.”

Prior to “Reck­less Sky­line”, Canty in­de­pen­dently re­leased the full-length “Golden Hour,” a Western-tinged al­bum tracked live in Maine in win­ter 2012.

She was the win­ner of the 2015 Tel­luride Troubadour song­writ­ing con­test and is based in East Nashville, Tenn.

Tick­ets are $20. For in­for­ma­tion and reser­va­tions, call 410-639-9133. ----On­line: www.main­stay­rock­hall.org www.caitlin­canty.com
