Caitlin Givhan Morski
Caitlin was given the gift of music at a young age. Growing up listening to her mother's original songs led Caitlin to write her first song at the age of three. After starting to home school in third grade, Caitlin started picking up guitar from her mother and taking flute lessons at a local music store. Although she had a love for words her entire life and started writing stories in 5th grade, she did not write songs that she would perform in public until she was 18.
What Caitlin did do at the age of twelve after seeing a family band and finding out that the children in it were younger than she was, was to demand to sing with her mother. Kathryn agreed to let Caitlin sing with her professionally if Caitlin agreed to practice with her. Of course, Caitlin agreed. Over the years of singing together, the two have "mind-melded" and now switch harmony and lead from song to song. Caitlin's voice has gotten stronger over the years, and her writing skills are awesome and touch those she sings for.
She's THROUGH a Bachelors' Degree in Creative Writing (NO! she's not intending to teach - well, maybe college) from Northern Michigan University. Currently unemployed (and somewhat glad about it), her plans are to throw herself into writing, touring, and getting paid for the things she really wants to do with her life. Also a cute house somewhere on the MorSkies Ranch. Maybe a car. A girl can dream...
For any questions about how to become a diva or what it's like to be graduated with a degree in poverty, drop caitlin a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to one of her occasional Blog posts.
