Caitlyn Shadbolt has hit the ground running this year with the release of her highly anticipated single, ‘Bones’.
Produced by Andy Mak (Vera Blue) & written with Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis), Caitlyn thinks ’Bones’ is a perfect summary of her life right now. As Caitlyn describes it, "Bones is about chasing the dream. It's a song about persistence, passion and trusting your gut instinct. There are always so many hurdles that come with dreaming big, but when you love something enough, you'll do it regardless. It couldn't speak more truth for me."
The 24 year old has been lauded as ‘one to watch’. Caitlyn was a finalist in the sixth season of The ‘X Factor’ Australia, since then she has released a catalogue of music, including her debut album ‘Songs On My Sleeve’ (May 2017). The album was co-written with some of the worlds best songwriters & producers including Liz Rose (Taylor Swift), John Alaiga (John Mayer), and A-grade Aussies, M-Phazes, Morgan Evans, Brooke McClymont & Phil Barton.
Upon release of the album, this Gympie girl’s creation hit #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart & the first single,‘My Break Up Anthem’, held the #1 National Country Airplay Chart for over 8 consecutive weeks and became the 2nd most played song on Country Radio (held out of the top spot by Sam Hunt’s monster hit' Body Like A Backroad) In 2017 Caitlyn was recognised for her achievements by winning the CMC award for best New Artist, along with a nomination for Female Artist of the Year.
