With a voice influenced by the rugged blues of Etta James and Big Mama Thornton, Caiti Baker’s powerful presence and themes of empowerment, love and hurt leave an unforgettable mark on the listener.

In another time she may have gone down an R&B/pop path – such is her rich soaring delivery. Crucial to what makes Sietta special is producer James Mangohig’s street-smart bass and drums, a reimagined electronic sound heavily influenced by hip hop. You have to be a real music lover to bring together indie sensibilities and dubstep aesthetics, rhythm & blues and industrial sounds into a soul joint. Only then to strip it all back to an acoustic jam revealing a universal appeal that floors even the most guarded listener.
