Originating from Southampton but now located in Brighton – Caity Baser combines honest, no-holds-barred lyrics with lilting, catchy melodies resulting in uplifting pop songs with a real bite. Her lyrics are filled with British slang, often aimed squarely at those who have wronged her in her past. Of the mixtape, Caity says:
“These songs and this mixtape mean everything to me. It literally describes my life the past year and a half and hearing all my thoughts and feelings put into 8 songs and explaining what I’ve gone through.. it just makes me feel so amazing! I’ve put so much love and fun into this and I hope people enjoy it as much as I loved making it.”
Most of the ‘Lil CB’ mixtape was produced by acclaimed duo Future Cut, the production team behind many of Lily Allen’s early hits, and features live horn sections, reggae-inspired beats and retro, Motown guitars – all of which reflect Caity’s diverse musical influences from across the decades.
Caity’s vocal style on the mixtape is dizzying in its range: From her quick talking, pseudo-rapping to full on pop melodies and vocal harmonies – despite the ‘Lil CB’ mixtape being her first material, it’s clear this is just the beginning of a long and varied artistic career for Caity Baser.
Caity’s fanbase erupted late last year – literally overnight. After singing some lyrics and a melody she’d written over a jazz guitar loop and posting it on TikTok, she woke up to be greeted by over 1.2 Million likes of the video with it going viral. Fast forward to today and Caity Baser just can’t stop the lyrics and melodies from flowing. She followed ‘Average Student’ with her next single ‘Haters’, her first official music video. Her single ‘Say It Like That’ was recently made Record Of The Week by BBC Introducing Solent. She’s also been shown support on Radio 1 from Jack Saunders, as he featured her on Next Wave. She’s also had a feature in the Observer.
Caity Baser’s debut mixtape ‘Lil CB’ is out now.
