Caity Baser is one of the UK’s fastest-rising pop acts of today. She is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and pop provocateur with an endearing, larger-than-life personality which has helped forge her huge legion of die-hard fans. Still only 21 years old, she gained initial success during lockdown from an improvised song she posted online – which took her on a whirlwind journey of success which today sees her performing to tens of thousands each week, earning widespread critical acclaim and regularly scoring hit singles for her honest, no-filter catchy Gen Z anthems.
These anthems include early successes ‘Friendly Sex’ and ‘X&Y’, which gained the attention of record labels across the world. She signed a deal with EMI Records in late 2022, going on to release hit singles including the top 30 track ‘Pretty Boys’ (which was also playlisted at BBC Radio 1 as well as many other national radio stations), recent single ‘Leave Me Alone’ and dance-pop summer anthem ‘Dance Around It’ with chart-topping DJ/producer Joel Corry.
Baser has earned the interest of national media for her prowess of writing a catchy, instantly recognisable melody combined with lyrics uniquely specific to her life growing up in the UK. She released her 2023 EP ‘Thanks For Nothing, See You Never’ to much critical acclaim, with NME dubbing her “pop’s wittiest new songwriter” and Rolling Stone UK hailing her “Gen Z’s new favourite pop star”. Music tastemaker magazine Dork crowned the EP as “pop chaos in the best tradition”.
Caity’s live performances are equally as memorable and lauded. Her most recent tour sold out in minutes and saw a record number of tickets sold. The tour garnered headlines across the country not only for her performances but for the landmark ticket price initiative she employed for the shows, capping the tickets at affordable rates for her young fans during the cost of living crisis. This resulted in coverage for Caity in publications including The BBC, The Sun, BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat and more.
Caity is currently performing at all major UK festivals, with a highly anticipated performance at Reading & Leeds later this Summer, having appeared at events earlier this year including Capital’s Summertime Ball, BST Hyde Park, Latitude Festival and many more.
