Sensational American songstress, Caitlin Quisenberry has finally presented the acoustic version of “Take Only What You Need”.
Caitlin Quisenberry takes her most well-known songs and reduces them down to their most basic elements, including her vocals, with the help of legendary GRAMMY-winning guitarist Bryan Sutton.
The raw simplicity of this EP, produced by Ben Simonetti (#1 “Same Boat” with Zac Brown Band), creates space, allowing each song to be heard in a more intimate way. It has clarity that can only be found in acoustic music. Listen to “Nashville Stripped” here.
As said by Caitlin, “The idea for stripping down my songs came from LIVE performances where I’ve sung my music acapella. People commented that they would love for me to put out music with just me singing with a guitar.”
“So, this EP is really a response to those comments. I think it’s important to listen closely to your fanbase and give them what they want. Personally, when I listen to acoustic music, I feel more connected to the artist and the lyrics because it’s void of any other distractions.” she added.
Caitlin has been featured in American Songwriter, Country Note, Westword, and ThinkTankNashville, and was called “Nashville’s Newest Darling” by Hype Magazine. Caitlin began singing at the age of three and hasn’t stopped since.
She began recording with multi-GRAMMY-winning producer Robert Cutarella when she was 14 years old, and the next year, she was cast on American Idol, where she won a Golden Ticket and was propelled into Hollywood.
Caitlin developed her skills further while in college, studying in Switzerland with the famous opera soprano Karine Mkrtchyan.
The Colorado native has teamed up with producers Ben Simonetti (#1 with Zac Brown Band), Sal Oliveri (#1 with P!nk and Chris Stapleton), and Jason Wyatt (Top-40 artist) to create music that relates to ordinary life and readily understandable interpersonal interactions.
