Cait talks to Billboard about Small Faces' "Ogdens Nut" at 50

Cait's in Billboard magazine this week talking with writer Ron Hart about the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking Small Faces album Ogdens Nut Gone Flake. "Crazily psychedelic, irresistibly tuneful and sometimes completely hilarious," she says. "I've always loved the music hall aspects of the record in particular. That combo of soul, psych, music hall and rock has been a huge inspiration and influence on my own work, especially on my album Third. Marriott's vocals are so fantastic on this record, '60s British soul at its finest. I love the entire record, but side two is absolute magic. It's a cockney fairy tale, a psych-soul spiritual predecessor of Harry Nilsson's The Point." Read more of Cait's thoughts on the record, alongside several of her musical favorites, here.

Cait & Third In Phoenix News Times' "Best Things We Heard In 2017"

"Cait Brennan’s 2017 record, Third, is a complex treasure trove of delights for the ear, psyche, and soul," writes Phoenix News Times' Tom Reardon. "From the opening verse of “Bad at Apologies” where Brennan says, “I’m the asshole who stole your boyfriend,” to the last notes of the heartachingly beautiful “Goodbye Miss America,” Third resonates with a perfect combination of charm, angst, and rock ’n’ roll swagger..."

Cait Brennan's Third is one of Popdose's 10 must-own albums of 2017!

Popdose's Keith Creighton praised Cait's album Third as a must-own and a "returning champion" of 2017! "We first met and interviewed her at the start of a whirlwind year that began with the release of her decades in the making power pop epic, Debutante; continued with her meeting Sire Records legend Seymour Stein who signed her to a 4-track demo deal; and ended with her signing to the perfect label to realize her vision: Omnivore," Creighton writes. "The album has been praised from coast to coast and around the world by a snowballing and quite rabid fanbase..."

Cait talks to Vice about Jackie Shane

"One of soul music's great gifts is its power to express suffering and yet somehow simultaneously alleviate it, both for the singer and the listener. I think of that a lot when I hear Jackie Shane sing," Cait tells Vice's Sam Reidel. Pioneering trans soul singer Jackie Shane graced us with a handful of amazing recordings before stepping out of the spotlight in 1971. A brilliant new Numero Group box set collects those sides and finally gives Jackie a chance to tell her own story. Cait and trans musician Mel Stone talk to Sam Reidel about Jackie Shane here.

No Depression on Third: "Prepare to be dazzled"

Doesn't get much better than Hyperbolum's No Depression review of Third! "Brennan’s full-length 2016 debut, Debutante, set a high bar for this follow-up...since this is technically her third album, it’s ineligible for a sophomore slump. And slump this is not. ‘Ascent’ is more apt. Those new to Brennan should prepare to be dazzled; fans should prepare to be dazzled anew.

Transforming Glam: Cait Brennan In Memphis

"Cait Brennan sings these words, and everything else on her new album, Third, as if her life depended on it," writes the Memphis Flyer's Alex Greene. "Not that she can't reveal a light touch, as when she sings, 'he knows too much, I think we'll have to kill him.' If the latter is built on a bedrock of T. Rex hand claps and chugging electric guitars, mixing the lighthearted with the murderous, that just comes with the territory..."

Omaha Comic Con: Cait Brennan vs Nellie Oleson!

Like any sensible girl in the 1970s and beyond, Cait Brennan grew up having night terrors about "Little House On The Prairie"'s own Nellie Oleson, the meanest mean girl in all of the meangirliverse. This Friday, July 7, we'll see if she's got what it takes as Cait squares off for a no holds barred con kickoff Q&A with the mighty Alison Arngrim, the actress who brought Nellie to life! It's the beginning of a very full weekend of events at O Comic Con at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs. Cait will be playing two concerts, hosting the unofficial kickoff session and leading a screenwriting panel/seminar on creating great characters for the big (and small) screen! So many great guests at O Comic Con this year and we're thrilled to be a part of it.

LA Weekly: Cait Brennan Could Be Pop/Rock's Next Big Thing

"Earlier this year, the 47-year-old singer-songwriter released Debutante, which is as powerful a debut as any in recent memory. If you combined Harry Nilsson, Paul McCartney, Rhodes, and a touch of Jane Wiedlin into one person, you’d have Brennan, whose sound identifies clearly with the most timeless and idiosyncratic songwriters in rock & roll," writes LA Weekly Music's Tom Reardon in a wonderful interview/profile out this morning in advance of Cait's show at International Pop Overthrow LA Saturday 7/30 at Molly Malone's.
