With two full-length albums under her belt (Hard Learned Truths , Separate Grooves ) and a kick-ass live band, East Bay singer-songwriter Caitlin Glennon brings her version of indie rock to the stage: pop-punk, rock & roll, lyrics-driven ballads, and a few all-out jams for good measure.
Influenced by the likes of The Bevis Frond, Buzzcocks, PJ Harvey, and Hüsker Dü, she takes her complaints on airline travel (TSA Patdown), gives a nod to throwback youth party culture (Young, Sassy & Drunk), and shares the pains of being an artist in the real world (Wanting In, Hard Learned Truths) with the help of her band.
She takes care of the vocals, keys, and guitar, while Alex Kenivel (Never Even, CHT, Inside Voice) lays down a mean lead guitar, Svend Nielsen (Skinny Knockdown, Footslog) keeps the groove on bass, and Jimmy Davidson (Calvary Chapel) gets you moving on drums.
“She's actually a careful, methodical artist with a folksinger lilt, and a cache of scrappy rock riffs that bring out — or jar with — the sweet tincture of her voice. It's a fascinating juxtaposition.” – East Bay Express
“Caitlin Glennon has managed to roll quite a bit of her magical music making skills into a brand new twelve track LP, titled Separate Grooves. The album itself takes us through a genre-bending mass of twists and turns, focusing largely on pop rock and bringing with it slow, simmering ballads that stick with you.” - Impose Magazine
Hard Learned Truths was the follow up to her 2006 4-song EP Someday We'll Be Gold which includes tight pop-rock Art School City and melodic synth-rock Every Day is a Dream, both which have been played on KALX's The Next Big Thing radio show. Songs off Hard Learned Truths have also been played on KALX and LA's The Independent FM radio, and the title track was also played on an episode of the CBS show Revolution (2014).
Separate Grooves is a digital-only release featuring upbeat guitar-pop single Working for You and its amusing YouTube video.
