Hot on the heels of a foray into solo territory, Caity Fowler (formerly of Playwrite) has announced her inspirational debut EP – ‘Whitelight Blackdog’.
I first met Caity Fowler a short while back at Golden Plains Music Festival and was immediately struck by her warmth, giving nature and positive energy, so it was a surprise for me to discover that like many young Australians, Caity has battled on and off with depression since she was a teenager. Having been affected by depression myself when I was younger and in more recent years by the struggles of family members, this is a topic that is close to mine own heart.
What I love about Caity is that this Melbourne-based singer/songwriter is now using her positive energies to shine a light on dark times. I was blown away 2 weeks ago by her openness onstage at The Evelyn Hotel when discussing the inspiration for her latest batch of music. ‘Whitelight Blackdog’ is a beacon of hope designed to start the conversation around a subject that has for too long been considered taboo, so that all of us affected may realize that we’re not alone.
“The secrecy and taboo that surrounds mental illness even in this day and age create shame and embarrassment. I may never learn to be proud of my suffering but I am proud of my resilience.”
