Caitlin LM

Singer-songwriter Caitlin LM makes music that creates an innate sense of space around it, bringing an immediate sense of intimacy to songs which, through their finely tuned arrangements, draw tight focus to her voice and lyrics.

New single ‘When Was The Last Time’ – following last month’s ‘I Know You Know’ – is a perfect example of this, not only through the sparse intertwining of synth and strings that make up the music, but through its lyrics, which are literally about creating space for yourself.

“’When Was The Last Time’ was written as a reminder for myself, and hopefully you, to pause, reflect and take time to breathe”, she says. “It’s often when things are most frantic that it feels the hardest thing to do, even though it’s what we need the most. In a world where hustling is celebrated, I think it’s important we still take time to be in this moment”.

You can catch Caitlin LM at Sofar Sounds in Brixton on 5 Oct, and then supporting the also recently approved Dilettante at Gulliver’s in Manchester on 14 Oct.
