Caitlyn is one of London’s most respected and decorated independent singer-songwriters. Taking inspiration from Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks, the singer is a wonderful alternative and independent sound that you could drop alongside Caroline Polachek and Joni Mitchell. His writing skills have earned him an array of impressive accomplishments, including his 70 million streams on Spotify, a publishing deal with BMG, a spot at Roc Nation writing camp, a sync on the popular reality show Love Island, a theme song on the BBC Drama Clique and a feature on Rudimental’s 2019 Distinction EP.

His ensemble is a string orchestra aiming to positively impact the gender gap in the industry, while creating space for musicians from marginalized genres – the first of its kind in the UK. Originating from the European Union Youth Orchestra, the band brings together some of the UK’s most in-demand musicians. The musicians in his Ensemble are passionate about creating meaningful change within the music industry, highlighting how outdated expectations, traditions and lack of awareness limit visibility and creative development. For performances, Her Ensemble musicians enjoy a casual dress code, often playing with colorful pants and replacing gendered concert attire. Addressing the dearth of women who have been overlooked in global concert programming, Her Ensemble seeks to engage with new and emerging composers, providing a platform for contemporary and historical voices.
