Debut Self-Titled Album
In an "about damn time" kind of moment, Seattle based singer-songwriter Caitlin Sherman is stepping out solo. She’s 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 lent her skills to a variety of partnerships. And while the songs themselves have always been the centerpiece on her musical table, what’s the new sound? Think NW torchy rocker, with a lilt from her country roots. Her debut self-titled album was produced and recorded by longtime friend 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 Justin Townes Earl, Frazey Ford, SUSTO, Esme Patterson, Liza Anne, Banditos, Ruby Boots, All Our Exes Live In Texas, Valley Queen, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, 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.
