‘Music has always been a huge part of my life but I'm a different artist from where I began - I now know who I am - and it's not just about music, it's about what you do with passion and perseverance. I have never felt as passionate as I do now about my music and I’m excited about this new phase in my life.’ Kaitlyn Thomas
A genuine and charming small town girl born and raised in rural Victoria Australia, Kaitlyn soaked up a vast variety of influences from her family and friends and at the age of 8 began writing songs. Over the following years Kaitlyn learned to play and write all genres of music and was rewarded with an armful of highly coveted awards including the Australian Songwriters Association Youth Songwriter of the Year and two-time winner of the Australian Children's Songwriter of the Year. Kaitlyn is a graduate of both the junior and senior CMAA Academy of Country Music and through her music and personal convictions is an active and respected ambassador for Bully Zero Foundation Australia. This role has cemented her belief that although being healthily vulnerable can be difficult; it also leads to an organic look on life. From this position Kaitlyn is a positive role model, openly exploring her own values and beliefs, and letting the world share the journey of her personal growth through her music.
In 2016 Kaitlyn performed at the famous Bluebird Café and Honky Tonk Central in Nashville, which has opened up great networking opportunities both as an artist and songwriter.
Currently working towards her new commercial release, Kaitlyn’s zest for life and all things musical, coupled with her desire to ‘take her time’ getting to know herself, Kaitlyn is on a journey into maturity both as a person and an artist. She writes from the heart, about things she knows and is experiencing, but with a maturity and understanding beyond her years, making her very popular not only with her peers, but with a wider audience.
2019 will see Kaitlyn working on a Bachelor of Music and Masters of Teaching with a 10 week exchange with Belmont University in Nashville – something she is very excited about and she is looking forward to soaking up all the opportunities that open up before her.
With muses like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Clare Dunn, Abby Anderson and The McClymonts, Kaitlyn loves to rock up her country, with dynamic, powerful vocals and entertaining, captivating performances.
Of this new phase in her life and career, Kaitlyn says this:
‘This is me – I hope you will join me on my journey.’
