Caitie Thompson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter. Her love of music began in her grandpa's garage long before she could even walk. 1950's rock n roll was always blaring when Caitie and her grandpa were together. When she was eight years old, she got her first guitar and started taking lessons from a local legend named Carl Edwards. This man made the guitar come alive for Caitie. He was and always will be, her most beloved teacher. (http://facebook.com/
For almost eighteen years, Caitie has been playing guitar, and drums/percussion. She was in numerous bands and ensembles as a teenager. When Caitie wasn't directing the high school marching band (as the drum major) she was rocking it out in the local bars with her band, The Rip City Rockers. After high school Caitie pursued a degree in music business at Capital University. Ever since Capital, she has performed all over the U.S. and even in England! The last eight years have been full of amazing experiences and lots of growth in her career.
When she isn't playing in the bars of Nashville, or even her hometown, she spends her time teaching music to young musicians. She has held private lessons in various studios all over Ohio, and she was the interim music director at Independence High School in Antioch, TN. Her love of classical music and teaching came from performing at Carnegie Hall with her high school orchestra, and also playing numerous concerts with The Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra. Once in a while, Caitie will perform with her high school orchestra or choir, and even her former Professor, Eric Paton when he needs an extra hand.
In 2017, Caitie released her very first Solo EP, "Enough". It took a full year of hard work, and determination. Every instrument and vocal track that can be heard, she preformed. Everything from the guitars, drums, organs and even the vocals. It was a true labor of love. Though the last few years of Caitie's life have been rather amazing, theres also been struggle, pain, and loss. But, they say there's no better way to work through the pain than to write it out! Caitie, and producer/engineer Mark Abrams took a year to pour our emotions into the arrangements, and toiled hard to bring forth a vision that she has had for a long time. "Enough" is the stand that Caitie takes against the things of the past. "It is a step forward", she says.
"I hope that when you listen, you feel strong ENOUGH to take a stand with me, so that we can walk forward together."
