Album review: Caitlin Canty, ‘Reckless Skyline’
“How can I belong to you and belong to me?” sings Caitlin Canty on “True,” a gorgeous lament from her new album, “Reckless Skyline.” The Vermont native with a casually devastating voice and unshakable poise is bound to be the next great Americana star — except nobody knows it yet. Recorded in just four days with money she raised on crowd-funding website Kickstarter, the 12 songs here sound wonderfully lived-in, with Canty’s easy way with folk, blues and country motifs driving standout songs like “My Love for You Will Not Fade” and “Southern Man.” That particular song is not a Neil Young composition, but she does manage to transform “Unknown Legend” — from his 1992 album, “Harvest Moon” — into a beautifully intimate night ballad. Joined by an all-star band that includes guys who played with Morphine, Booker T and Ray Lamontagne, Canty is ready to be discovered.
