Bio

Caitlin King is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Throughout her adolescence, she studied classical and jazz piano, sang in choirs with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and participated in rock bands with organizations like School of Rock. 

Caitlin equally loved classical and "popular" music despite the age-old feud between the two genres. In her music, Caitlin mixes both styles. 

She was born and raised in Oak Cliff: the same Dallas neighborhood as Stevie Ray Vaughn. On Thursdays, throughout middle school and high school, Caitlin would sit in at a regular blues jam with a rotating cast of musicians, including Jimmy Vaughn. 

Her biggest influences are Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Elliott Smith, Nina Simone, and Joni Mitchell. 

Aside from music, Caitlin spent her adolescence battling depression. Unfortunately, seeking treatment for depression evokes the unpleasant process of convincing another person: a parent, counselor, or medical professional: of the seeker's distress.

Caitlin had written music for fun throughout her childhood, but songwriting began to take on a new meaning. She discovered that adults were more inclined to take her seriously if her message was presented through music.

Fortunately, Caitlin received the help she needed after seven years of seeking treatment. 

Caitlin is motivated by the experiences described above to be meticulous with her choice of words. She strives to deliberately craft music to each line. She hopes to empower listeners to take ownership of their lives by providing them with proof that change is possible and that they are not alone.
