Singer/Songwriter Caity Gallagher plays the Open for Business Concert Series
A folk singer songwriter based in Albany, NY, Caity Gallagher’s rootsy compositions and lilting vocal lines serve to showcase intimate lyrics that tell universally relatable stories. Originating in the Capital Region scene as a founding member of the pop-rock/folk band, Honey Slider, Caity spent the better part of this past year honing her individual sound, and recording her debut solo EP, “Happens All the Time.” Likened to a modern combination of The Cranberries and Jackson Browne, Caity elevates melodic, lyrical, and emotional expression in her music, with each song aiming to map the endless meandering paths of the human experience.
Her newest single, “Give It All,” is on all streaming services. It’s her latest release since “Pressed Flowers,” which dropped in December.
“Give It All” boasts the sound that makes Gallagher so uniquely her; vocals that feel light and magical, but still showcase power and emotion. The song, which touches on the feelings one has when they’re ready to jump into a new relationship but still feel some boundaries preventing them from fully investing, rings in at a little over three minutes.” – Nippertown.com
