Philadelphia Inquirer / Daily News calls Canty “delightful”

“The first thing that strikes the listener about Caitlin Canty is her voice.

Her stage presence is delightful and her songwriting is well-crafted, insightful, creative and entertaining.”

Direct Current RADAR previews “Get Up”

“For her new album Reckless Skyline (January 20), Canty turned to producer, noted songwriter and guitarist Jeffrey Foucault and a razor sharp band of veteran studio players.”

“The collaboration led Canty into a slightly grittier, more electric territory as two-step ballads and delicate folk songs made room for some slightly rowdier musical company. Not surprisingly, Canty is looking forward to bringing her backing players on the road with her in January: “There’s nothing like the energy of a great live band and this one is so good it would be a pity to keep all the fun behind closed studio doors”
