California native, Kaitlyn Weathers, is a 21 year old singer/songwriter and a rising star on the country/pop scene. She grew up in the mid sized suburban town of Murietta about 5 miles outside of the beautiful Temecula vineyards that have become quite the tourist town in Southern California .
In her early years, Kaitlyn began performing first as a dancer before discovering her true passion and love for Country music. Kaitlyn's first break out performance was the National Anthem in her home town, followed by performances at Temecula’s form of ‘The Grand Ole Opry’, and “Temecula Live!”.
Since then Kaitlyn has performed at a variety of Temecula wineries, Country music festivals, and private parties all throughout Southern California both as a solo artist, and as a member of Painted Daizies
(A Country Female Duo).
Over the past 3 years she has developed a loyal fan base and relationships with many industry executives who have recognized her unique vocal abilities. One notable producer Kaitlyn has collaborated with prior to her current production team, is music veteran and producer Billy Alexander (John Waite).
Kaitlyn is a member of the West Coast Country Music Association headed by her vocal coach Gwyn Sanborn. In 2010 she traveled to Nashville with the WCCMA to compete in a singing competition winning “Rising Star Vocalist of the Year”. This is one of many accolades and awards this artist has received for her memorable performances.
During the first quarter of 2013, Kaitlyn was discovered by Entertainment Publicist/A&R Dani Thompson from DNT Agency, during a duo performance at an Old Town Temecula Winery called Tesoro.
DNT Agency and their writing team "The Assassination" (Corey Bush and Daniel Martin), have taken a genuine interest in helping develop Kaitlyn as an original artist so she can begin shopping record label offers after the release of her new Country/ Pop original EP. That is of course if she doesn't decide to pursue the independent distribution route which is also a realistic possibility unless the offer is too good to resist!
The next 3 months will be spent writing and producing with "The Assassination" team who is under the umbrella of Perfect Storm Music Group headed by Swedish Music industry execs and publishers Jorgen Elofsson and Robin Cass. PSMG won a Grammy this year for Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger" and have a powerful team of writers behind Kaitlyn's project who are hoping to repeat this process with their new artist in 2013/14.
Kaitlyn is inspired by artists including Carrie Underwood, Rascall Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, Adele and many other influential performers. Kaitlyn has incorporated a variety of modern instrumentals and fused them with old school grass root elements, to create a one of a kind sound that will engage fans across multiple platforms.
Stay tuned for new music from this next rising Country/ Pop star. Her playful wholesome personality, breathtaking beauty, and undeniable talent set the bar for new emerging talent. She is the next big thing on the Country music scene and you will be seeing great things from the lovely Kaitlyn Weathers in 2013. This is her year!
