“It was a pivotal scene in Neighbours last week. As Andrew Robinson revealed to Tash that he didn’t love her, and he sent Facebook messages to the third member of the love triangle, Summer, the soundtrack was provided by Sydney singer-songwriter Caitlin Harnett. “Watch us breaking, folding beneath the fire,” Caitlin sang, “a battle between what we have and what we desire.” Before Now is the achingly beautiful opening cut on Caitlin’s second EP, All In The Golden Afternoon. You wonder how one so young – Caitlin has just said goodbye to her teenage years – can write something so melancholic and poetic. “I love you is just another thing we said to make it right,” Caitlin sings, “You tell me this is dying, well, I’ve been dying for too long now.”
. Many artists are doing the fey pop thing, but few are doing it with as much depth and poetic insight. . Caitlin Harnett is going to be a star, it’s just a matter of when.”
“Her sound is earnest and wonderfully simple, like a straight answer in a sea of bullshit. It is post-dreamy and threaded through with the good elements of country. If I had to choose one reason to listen to her it would be this, when she lifts you follow.”
“Caitlin Harnett is a beautiful person and you can hear it through her music. She's fantastic and I can't wait until the day she comes to the US so I can see her in person.”
“Every now and then you run across an artist who you feel, rather than hear. When I first saw Caitlin, I closed my eyes, and her music took me away. Yes, I heard it, but I also felt it which is a rare thing.”

“Caitlin's a terrific songwriter, superb singer and a really nice person to boot”
“Caitlin Harnett's debut EP Tiny Spark is a beautiful testament to just how lovely an acoustic guitar and melodic vocals can be.
