“I have spent the last few years writing songs and evolving my sound that reflects my country core and influences I grew up on. Right now, I feel like I’ve finally found who I am as an artist”, says Kaitlyn.
Born and raised in rural Victoria, Kaitlyn’s love for music came at a very early age. Soaking up the music that was being played around her while growing up, they inspired her to begin writing her own songs at the age of 8.
“I’ve had a lot of musical influences growing up, but I’ve always found myself drawn to strong independent women in the music industry. Artists like Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood, The McClymonts, Abby Anderson and rock artists Anne Wilson and Pat Benetar inspire me to push myself musically and vocally with my performances and writing”.
Kaitlyn Thomas is a graduate of both the junior and senior CMAA Academy of Country Music and was awarded Australian Youth Songwriter of the Year in 2012 and again in 2018. Personal highlights also include performing at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Café’ and Honky Tonk Central in 2016 and receiving an endorsement from Maton Guitars.
