Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930’s Recording King guitar. Her breakout record Reckless Skyline features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk. Produced by Jeffrey Foucault, Reckless Skyline garnered glowing praise from NPR, among others. The San Francisco Chronicle lauded Canty’s, “casually devastating voice and unshakable poise,” and her “easy way with folk, blues and country motifs.”

Both on the road and on her records, Canty creates a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the very heart of American music, tempered with a voice both haunting and distinct.

A constant collaborator, Canty writes and performs with several bands including Down Like Silver, her ongoing duo with Peter Bradley Adams. Prior to Reckless Skyline, she independently released the full-length Golden Hour, a gently produced and Western-tinged album tracked live in Maine in the winter of 2012. Her song, “Get Up” received a Song of the Year nomination in the International Folk Music Awards, and she is the winner of the 2015 Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest.

Raised in small-town Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, she spent her early years in New York City as a backup singer and performing her own songs at Lower East Side music halls. Caitlin now lives in East Nashville, Tennessee.


Kate Lorenz has been singing ever since she learned to talk. An avid lover of classic rock and motown, she was surrounded by music from a young age and quickly fell in love with the stage. Starting off by singing what she heard on mixed tapes and in her parents' vinyl collection, she cut her teeth on the blues while studying abroad playing with a pub band in Ireland.

Singing with as many people as possible Kate has performed in a gypsy jazz group, afrobeat band, sleazy pop cover group, with a bluegrass trio, a female motown group, and formed the nationally touring band Rusty Belle with her brother Matt Lorenz (The Suitcase Junket) in 2006. 

Kate has recorded back up vocals for fellow folk artists: Chris SmitherJeffrey FoucaultCaitlin Canty,  Hayward WilliamsThe Suitcase Junket and Zak Trojano

Kate currently lives in Western MA and plays and sings with her band Kate Lorenz & The Constellations (Ben Falkoff, Max Adam and Don McAulay) and with the Southern VT honky tonk band The Rear Defrosters. Her all-vinyl radio show, The Vinyl Countdown, is on Valley Free Radio on Wednesday evenings. 

Kate Lorenz's first solo album is due out in January 2018.
