Kaiti Jones has been making her home in the Boston folk scene since 2010. A native of Portland, Maine, she spent four years in Nashville, forming her sound in the backyard of Bob Dylan’s ballads and Flannery O’Connor’s southern gothic storytelling before returning north.
Jones’ first two releases were EPs - “Arise Child” in 2009, written and recorded in Nashville, and “Growing Things,” her first Boston release in 2013. For her first full-length album, VOWS, she teamed up with Golden Bear Records (The Well Pennies) in Des Moines, Iowa and released the album at the end of 2017 to a sold-out room at Club Passim in Cambridge. Jones was a 2018 NewSong Music Competition national finalist, and in 2019 she took home the grand prize at the Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge Main Event in Cambridge, MA and was selected for the Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase at the 2019 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York.
Jones’ music is Americana soaked in melancholy, with the occasional foot stomper thrown in for good measure. Her voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through good old-fashioned storytelling.
