Caitlyn Shadbolt My Breakup Anthem.jpg

After almost two years since the release of her successful self-titled EP, Caitlyn Shadbolt has worked hard to create a new album that truly shows her growth and commitment to the craft.‘Songs On My Sleeve’, Caitlyn’s exciting debut album, will be released May 26th via ABC/ Universal Music.

Launching today, Caitlyn introduces fans and media to her new sound with the first single, ‘My Breakup Anthem’. The infectious single shows a strong and independent Caitlyn having a whole lot of fun!

Caitlyn explains the first single from the album- “I wrote ‘My Breakup Anthem’ with a good friend, Jared Porter. I wanted to write something powerful for women and promote confidence and independence. When I finished the song, I had no idea what to call it. I was like okay what is this song? It’s a break up anthem. It’s MY break up anthem.”

Born and raised in Gympie Queensland, 21-year-old Caitlyn grew up immersed in music. A naturally gifted singer, accomplished guitar player and dynamic live performer, Caitlyn has all the qualities that form the basis of a credible and long-lasting career in music.

Songs On My Sleeve is a personal album for Caitlyn Shadbolt, who spent time in her hometown, Sydney, Nashville and Bali penning the songs. Produced with Andrew Cochrane (Veronicas), it’s an album of love, friends and relationship breakups but ultimately delivers some very positive messages.

Caitlyn herself agrees, “Overall I’m a pretty positive person, so if I’m writing a break up song it generally has underlying strength and quite often, cheekiness.” 

Featured in the list of album credits are some of the world’s most gifted and awarded songsmiths such as hip hop / R&B, Grammy award winning producer, M-Phazes (Eminem, Daniel Johns and Eskimo Joe); renowned producer John Alaiga (John Mayer, Jason Mraz and Ben Folds Five); country star, Brooke McClymont (The McClymonts); and ex-pat Aussies Kylie Sackley and Phil Barton who between them have had hit songs recorded by the likes of US superstars Alan Jackson, Leann Rimes and Lee Brice.  

Plus, signing on for a powerful duet is Reece Mastin who, apart from winning X Factor in 2011, has had number 1 singles and a double platinum, self-titled album.

Songs On My Sleeve is set to surprise and delight and will herald the arrival of this talented songstress in Australia and abroad. Watch this space, Caitlyn Shadbolt is a rising star in the truest sense!
