Caitlin Harnett hails from Sydney,
Australia but her songs evoke Laurel Canyon of the early 1970’s.
They share the personal and poetic nature of Joni and Jackson
Browne’s early songs, youthful in their outlook but with age-old
concerns at their core.
Caitlin is one of the youngest signings
to Mushroom Music Publishing, Australia’s largest independent music
publisher. She has been recognised both internationally
and locally for her songwriting.
September 2012 sees Caitlin return to
the US. She is part of a select group of 5 Australian's,
including Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, who have been
invited to officially showcase at the Americana Music Festival in
Nashville. In Australia she has performed in many venues
around the country and is a regular on the Festival circuit.
The fragility that has captured audiences at her live performances
belies the clarity and fullness of her voice. And when she tweaks a
word here and turns a phrase there, the simple notion of a girl
alone onstage with her guitar is not so simple anymore.
Caitlin’s much-anticipated sophomore EP
‘All in the Golden Afternoon’ uses the template from her delicate
debut ‘Tiny Spark’ but expands the musical palette. The ‘Alice in
Wonderland’ themed title and artwork serves as a pointer to
Harnett’s sweetness and wide-eyed innocence. In it’s first month of
release, two of the tracks featured in prime time Australian
Commercial Television programs.
All In The Golden Afternoon is exquisite” – Jeff Jenkins (Inpress,
'Tiny Spark', her debut EP released in
2009, achieved great success. All 5 original songs continue to be
used on television. The track ‘Tying Hands and Holding Shoelaces’
featured in the Australian film ‘Centreplace’ and earned her the
Runner up spot in the prestigious Vanda and Young Songwriting
"Tiny Spark is a beautiful testament to just how lovely an acoustic
guitar and melodic vocals can be" – Brag Magazine
now and then you run across an artist who you feel, rather than
hear. I closed my eyes, and her music took me away. Yes, I heard
it, but I also felt it which is a rare thing.
