Caitlin Simon, aka Baby Cate, actually started making music when she was about four years old. Her parents bought her some toy drums for Christmas and since that moment, she never turned back. She was hooked.
Growing up in a small town in Massachusetts for most of her life kept her grounded. However, the lack of diversity around had her lost for most of her adolescent years, especially since she was mixed and didn't know where she fit in.
Caitlin always grew up with music around the house. There was Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Seal, U2, Sting and many more blasting on a Sunday morning when everyone was cleaning. She taught herself piano and guitar for a few years before taking formal lessons, and really wanted to know more.
In middle school, she had first learned about production and recording through Garageband and Logic Pro 9. Experimenting with rock elements to pop to recording covers with a guitar to making beats really shaped her musical journey. It wasn't until she attended Hofstra University that she classically trained for guitar. She would then go on to graduate Hofstra with a Bachelor of Science in Music Business.
After releasing many 'mixtapes' she finally found her voice with her 'UFO' EP. She continues to make music and pursue a career full time as this is written. It is this ambition and relentless passion that keeps her determined to go as far as her creative can take her.
“I want people to want to listen to every song I make over and over again because they connect to it in some way. That’s what makes it timeless."
