EDITORS’ NOTES

Singer/songwriter Caitlin Canty’s music veers between earthy country, downtrodden blues, contemplative folk, and thunderous rock. That’s not a particularly unusual paper route—Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones, Shelby Lynn, and countless others do it—but Canty can say she’s very good at what she does, and she gets help from some top-shelf talent led by produce/guitarist Jeffrey Foucault. The catchy “Get Up,” the harrowing “My Love for You Will Not Fade,” and the poetic “The Brightest Day” should make believers out of hardened cynics. While this is nearly all-original material, the addition of Neil Young’s “Unknown Legend” is a nice grace note.

Highly recommended!

Was lucky enough to discover her one Saturday morning on WFMU's folk show Shrunken Planet, during a rebroadcast of a guest spot--she is so personalble and such a wonderful artist, both in her sensibilities and selections and in her writing, singing and playing. We caught her later at a gig with her band and were just blown away. She deserves every success!

Beautiful Album From Start to Finish

Such a beautiful album from start to finish. Listening to Reckless Skyline makes me want to drink whiskey from a boot flask.

Great album

After sampling just one song I knew I had to purchase this album. Caitlin's voice and lyrics are amazing. Definitely recommended!
