Caitlyn Shadbolt has been lauded by many as one to watch and a rising star.
A finalist in The X Factor Australia in 2014, Caitlyn secured a recording deal with ABC MUSIC and released her debut album, ‘Songs On My Sleeve’ in May 2017. Upon release, the album hit #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart. The first single, ‘My Break Up Anthem’, held the #1 National Country Airplay Chart for over 8 consecutive weeks and became the second most played song on Country Radio. Caitlyn was recognised for her achievements by winning the CMC Award for Best New Artist, along with a nomination for Female Artist of the Year.
With her roots initially in country, Caitlyn has progressed her sound into a more polished pop-country feel with the release of her sophomore album, ‘Stages’. Smash singles from this album include ‘Bones’‚ ‘Porcelain’ and ‘Edge of the Earth’. The official music video for ‘Edge of the Earth’ featured Caitlyn’s hometown of Gympie, utilising the breath-taking views of Rainbow Beach and other parts of the Gympie Region. Her latest single ‘Oxygen’ hit the airwaves in March 2021.
After working on defining her sound over the last few years, be sure to watch Caitlyn play her re-invented authentic sound at Groundwater CMF 12-14 November 2021.
