Sherman has a clear, haunting voice that drew me deep into the music at first listen.

"Singer Caitlin Sherman is patient. She has the control and uneasy grace of Portishead's Beth Gibbons, but she makes that unease sound effortless with her exacting shrill" - The Stranger

“Caitlin Sherman is more than a sultry voice. With a storyteller's eye for detail, she paints a vivid portrait ” - City Arts

 

 

Seattle based singer-songwriter Caitlin Sherman has had her fair share of collaborations. From the moody experimental folk of Slow Skate, to electronic noir with Lusine, and most recently  cosmic country psych rock in Evening Bell, she has lent her skills to a variety of partnerships. And so in an "about damn time" kind of moment, she's stepping out solo. Think NW rocker trapped in the body of a honky tonk angel with the voice of a classic torch singer. Her debut solo album was produced and recorded by Colin J Nelson. Personnel, both on the album and live setting, include Jason Merculief on drums (J Tillman, Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, Alela Diane, Sera Cahoone), Bill Patton on guitar (Fleet Foxes, J Tillman) and Jesse Harmonson on bass (Jaime Wyatt, The Crying Shame).

Most recently the new solo project with backing band has provided local Seattle support for Frazey Ford, Esme Patterson, SUSTO, Liza Anne, Valley Queen, Banditos, All Our Exes Live In Texas, Barna Howard and Izaak Opatz. And with Evening Bell she has shared bills with Wanda Jackson, Howe Gelb, Kyle Craft, The Moondoggies, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Jaime Wyatt.
