Caiti Baker, a vocalist and front woman raised on the sounds that birthed popular music, is now ready to release her new music onto the masses. Born into a household filled with vinyl, CDs and tapes of blues, soul, gospel, jazz, big band and rock & roll, Caiti’s father, a blues musician himself, made sure that she was raised amongst music.
Writing songs about what she knows and feels, and singing with her soul, Caiti unashamedly performs the hell out of them. Her music, while showing influences of those styles, is clearly her own. Watching her perform you’ll find yourself drawn into her world; either dancing or chilling with a grin on your face.
Stepping out on her own, Caiti signed with Perambulator Records and has completed a successful national tour, which wrapped up at the Darwin Entertainment Centre with the Son Little Solo Tour.
Heavy On My Heart, an energetic, genre-hopping fusion of jazz, soul, hip-hop and plainspoken reflection.

Gorgeously rhythmic and sassy, the song is an honest, personal reflection on the state of the world and where Caiti sees herself fitting into it all.

Caiti Baker is making the kind of music we don’t hear enough of …Sounds of Oz
Of course, it helps that her voice is one of the best, and most versatile, in the country. She tackles pop, blues, soul, rock and R&B and makes it sound completely effortless. If Baker were to make a straightforward soul or pop record, it would be worthy of your attention. The fact she hasn’t makes it all the more interesting.
That Baker pulls it off so effortlessly is testament not only to her talent, but to her vision. There probably aren’t any other artists who could make an album like Zinc, because it relies so heavily on Baker’s intimate knowledge and love of the genres she tackles.
Perhaps it’s the benefit of having experienced such a rich career prior to her debut solo outing, maybe Baker’s maturity as an artist has made her less afraid to take risks, or maybe this is just the voice she’s always wanted to project …Dan Condon, Double J
… now solo, she’s [Caiti] re-embraced her beloved country, rootsy blues and retro-nuevo soul – kind of. In fact, the singer/songwriter made Zinc with old studio cohort James Mangohig and Skinnyfish Music’s Michael Hohnen cutting up her muso dad’s guitar and harmonica parts – very hip-hop. Baker has a swaggering voice to rival that of Adele …Cameron Adams, Mikey Cahill and Cyclone Wehner, Herald Sun
Baker’s voice never faltered, flicking between soaring falsettos and falling to lower octaves effortlessly.Tasman Keith, The Music Podcast
Each piece is unique, each uniquely wonderful.Gareth Hipwell, Rolling Stone
Caiti’s voice breaks the stratosphere with some high-octave magic in parts, making her a standout vocalist amongst her peers. She has the moves, the grooves and voice to take this act all the way to the top …Jean-Eddy Moutou, Foldback Magazine
