Originally from Madison, Wisconsin turned Los Angeles lover, singer / songwriter Cait has released her highly anticipated new single 'Genius'.
With colourful lyrics painted over a dreamy pop track, 'Genius' gives us a look into the beauty and vulnerability in her own relationship, and what it feels like for someone to see you better than you see yourself. It is that summery, glittery, roll down your windows track that we've all been waiting for, with vibrant pop production, produced by Brian Phillips.
"You're human - which evidently makes you complicated, messy and intricate. So when someone manages to find their way through your maze and see you clearly in all your imperfect glory, that must make them a genius."
Cait gives us a modern take on the classic singer / songwriter, offering a hypnotic sensory escape to her listeners, somehow leaving them warmer, lighter, and painted with a subtle golden hue. Colourful guitars, genuine lyrics, warmly textured piano and unforgettable melodies combine to create a heartfelt and invigorating sound. Drawing on her experience as an in-demand visual artist and photographer, Cait pairs her brand of honest pop with dreamy atmospheres full of stunning imagery that is distinctly her own.
Since graduating from Berklee College of Music, Cait has worked behind the scenes as a writer for a range of artists from indie to major label. A creative force and a storyteller by nature, Cait not only writes & independently releases her own music, but is the sole visual creator for her music career: designing her own single artwork, producing her own photoshoots, filming, directing and editing her own music videos and online visual content.
