Australian Pop-Country sweetheart and The X Factor 2014 Top 5 Finalist CAITLYN SHADBOLT has signed to ABC Music, and today reveals plans to release her debut self-titled EP on 21 August through ABC/Universal.

‘SHOOT OUT THE LIGHTS’ is the latest single from the forthcoming EP. Produced by Andrew Cochrane, it’s a hooky upbeat pop-infused country anthem, reminiscent of long hot summer nights and sure to appeal to the wild, free and young at heart.

“I really love this next single!” said Caitlyn. “I think everyone has felt like this at some stage in their life – it reminds people to live young!”

Natalie Waller, GM ABC Music & Events said, “Caitlyn is a unique and talented young artist; We’re thrilled to welcome her to the ABC Music roster, and look forward to launching her debut solo release”.

Released earlier this year, Caitlyn’s debut single ‘Maps Out The Window’ shot straight to the top of the iTunes Country Singles Chart and reached the Top 5 on the Australian Country Airplay Chart.

Over the past 12 months, Caitlyn has established herself as one of the nation’s leading young performers; consistently wowing audiences and judges alike on top-rating TV program The X Factor. Since securing a Top 5 position in October 2014, she has shared the stage with Country Music royalty including the likes of Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand, The Wolfe Brothers and Jasmine Rae. Caitlyn gears up to play the Main Stage at this year’s Gympie Music Muster, for which she’s an Official Ambassador, promising to blow the hometown crowd away!
