Caiti Baker | 7:30pm Free Entry 

Soul/ Rhythm/ Blues/ Beats – 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. Whether it was playing on the stereo, in the car, at a concert or attending week long festivals – music was everywhere.

As a child, Caiti developed a love and appreciation for the pioneering music but was drawn obsessively to hip hop, R&B, New Jack Swing and Neo soul. After being given an 8 track digital recorder, she learnt how to write and record songs on her own from the age of 12. Inspired by the greats like Aretha Franklin, Big Mamma Thornton, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Etta James and Little Walter; Caiti began to take notes on Missy Elliott, Aaliyah, Destiny’s Child, Lauryn Hill and Faith Evans.

She got better at writing and singing and formed an electro-soul act with bass player and producer James Mangohig in her early 20s called Sietta. Together they toured nationally and internationally, supported some great acts, played many festivals, released 2 EPs and 2 albums which had a few songs that got some air play on a few great radio stations.
