Biography

Phoenix, United States (2012 – present)

Cait Brennan is a piano rock singer-songwriter whose work draws on Americana, alt-country, soul, glam rock and powerpop influences. Brennan’s huge, soaring tenor has been compared to Sam Cooke, Etta James and Iris DeMent. Brennan’s music combines melodic roots, soul and alternative country sensibilities with dense vocal harmonies and lyrics that occasionally draw on Vaudeville and Music hall themes. Many of her songs draw from her “rootless” early life experience growing up on the road from the Midwest to California, but her lyrics also invoke historical, literary, biblical and mythological figures and themes to create hook-laden, often wryly humorous character tales of faded heroes, road-weary romantics and quixotic dreamers. Brennan tips her cap to songwriters like Iris DeMent, Jarvis Cocker, David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Merle Haggard and Ray Davies.

International Pop Overthrow founder David Bash described her as “a singer songwriter with a unique brand of glitter glam soulful rock n’ roll sung straight from the heart” and said “you gotta love anyone who can channel Roy Orbison, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, and Etta James in the space of a single set.”

Brennan is also featured on the KAET/Tempe Center for the Arts public television concert series “Songwriters Showcase” airing on PBS stations in fall 2013. Other notable recent appearances include the “In The Spotlight” songwriters-in-the-round showcase and showcase sessions for Kulak’s Woodshed in Hollywood.
