Fast forward to her sold-out homecoming gig at The Engine Rooms in Southampton, she was truly a force to be reckoned with. Her voice was so powerful and raw, the crowd responded with thunderous cheers from the moment she stepped on stage. The energy in the room? Electric.
From the first note to the last, Caity had the crowd in the palm of her hand. She kicked off by belting out her hit songs like “Friendly Sex” followed by “Feel More OK” with such intensity, you couldn’t help but feel excited as she was Her performance encapsulated her charming & catchy melodies which had a real bite!
But it wasn’t just her vocals that blew us away. Caity’s stage presence was on point. She had this contagious energy that just radiated throughout the room, and you couldn’t help but jump and dance along with her.
One of the highlights of the night was when Caity decided to give the crowd a taste of her unreleased song, “Leave Me Alone”. You could feel the excitement in the air as Caity announced she had a surprise for everyone. She explained that “Leave Me Alone” has never even been played before and we all were the first to hear the yet unreleased and unfinished track she only started 2 weeks ago. It was a truly special moment, one that reminded us all why we love music so much. It takes courage to share something so new live on stage in her hometown.
I spoke to a group of people who had arrived at 1pm and were waiting in line for Caity’s performance. They told me that they wanted to get too front-row and were willing to wait for hours just to make sure they got there. To their surprise, Caity Baker herself appeared outside the venue and started doing cartwheels by the queue! The gig-goers were thrilled and started cheering her on.
Caity Baser’s sold-out show in Southampton was an absolute blast. From TikTok to a rising star in the music industry, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next. If you haven’t checked out her music yet, do yourself a favour and give her a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
