Hello. I’m Cailey, and I’m a singer/songwriter with no sense of style and a reputation for losing everything, including my mind.
A lot of people ask me where I get most of my inspiration from, and that is a very beautiful, complicated question. I get the Taylor Swift question a bunch - usually somewhere along the lines of “You must have had a lot of boy troubles to have all of those songs." And the answer is really the exact opposite. I’ve only really had a short period of time when I was a “girlfriend". But I was like, 12, so it wasn’t like I actually understood what a relationship really was. But a lot of my songs stem from that experience and the emotions from feeling even remotely significant to someone plays a major part in my writing.
Most of my songs, however, come from situations I’ve seen happen or have been told about. They also come from things I wish I had and have yet to go through (yes, that includes the breakups and girly-sad stuff). I’m not looking for love, but in the time before I find it, I might as well write about what I believe it’s like.
I like walks in the park, as long as it’s not too hot. I cherish sleep because I enjoy dreaming. I love art and photography, though I’m not very good at either. I can be very shy and awkward sometimes, mostly because I find it hard to express myself through the act of speech. Writing is one of the ways I’m able to do that. I’ll write anything - songs, stories, poems, lame entries about my feelings, you name it - to get my thoughts across. I have a lot of jewelry and I’m just now beginning to incorporate multiple pieces into my outfits. I have an embarrassing fear of fish and bugs. I’m very keen on change. I don’t like the idea of being stuck in or with something for a super long period of time. This might explain my obsession with wanting to travel and see the world. I enjoy quiet company. I’m not a very social person, and habitually I rely on other people to approach me first. I always love meeting and talking to people so never be afraid to approach me. Odds are I’m sending a million prayers that you will.
I love everybody I know in specific ways, but overall I adore everyone. I appreciate all of the support you have given me so far and I hope that you’ll stick with me for the years to come.
