Caitlin Archibald / Bio

Like a lot of music that stays with you over time, there is an element of chance in your stumbling across it. Caitlin Archibald is the kind of artist who, emerging from your car radio one morning, could open your eyes to the day's clear colours, the kind of voice that could draw you magnetically toward a festival stage, and with the kind of songs that could make you weep quietly at night. Her music is the culmination of a winding journey from sweaty rock beginnings singing AC/DC covers, to the 90's gig circuit in Melbourne, followed by long stints travelling, busking and gigging away from home, arriving finally at her self funded debut album, "Gravity".
"Gravity" was recorded at Audrey Studios in Melbourne, Australia. Caitlin found a like minded collaborator in producer & engineer Craig Pilkington, who was able to call on a dream-list of Melbourne musicians to realise her vision, including Bruce Haymes (Paul Kelly) & Jen Anderson (Weddings, Parties, Anything) to realise the full potential of each song. The album rides between ethereal oceanic ballads, country flavoured laments & downright brassy blues. Caitlin's fiercely strong voice delivers meticulously crafted lyrics & idiosyncratic phrasing, which drives each & every moment of "Gravity". The eclectic strength and passion of the music of Caitlin Archibald has caught the attention of people such as Townes Van Zandt producer C.L Milburn who said; "Caitlin Archibald is a singer/songwriter who weaves her lyrics and melody into a unique blend of folk/rock/blues. Her voice is pure & pleasurable, conveying her life experiences into each song....She has a lot of potential to make a mark for herself beyond her native country of Australia. I've worked with artists such as Townes Van Zandt & feel Caitlin can prove herself as worthy an artist."
