Caitlin Mahoney is a New York City-based singer-songwriter, who writes of adventure, passion, chaos and love. Originally hailing from Orlando, Fla., Caitlin has been singing and performing since she was 7 years old and writing songs since she was 17. Her music is a mixture of folk, pop and rock music.
In 2011, she released her first single on iTunes, “A Year Ago Yesterday,”
an upbeat, acoustic tune that spins the silver lining of heartbreak. And in April 2013, Caitlin teamed up with producer Jeff Fettig and independently released her debut EP, “West for a While.” Caitlin and her band played the release show to an at-capacity crowd at Rockwood Music Hall in New York’s Lower East Side.
Shortly after moving to New York, Caitlin played at least 5 shows per month, both under her own project and as a valued backup vocalist for other local artists. She has played over 50 live shows in the NYC area in 2012, and went on a mini-tour across the nation this past summer, ending with a set at the Great Lakes Burning River Fest in Cleveland, Ohio. Her cover of “Dancing In The Dark” by Bruce Springsteen appeared on HelloGiggles (over 2 million unique visitors per month) in April 2013. Caitlin’s song “You are a Safe Place” was chosen over 1000 submissions in the 2013 Fatherhood Challenge Contest, sponsored by the “This is Fatherhood” campaign, a movement in support of the President’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative. This January, Caitlin will go on the “Songs and Whispers” tour with UK-based artist Pasco Tom. It will be her first European tour.
