THE STORY SO FAR
‘Her music combines 80s synth-pop melodies with moody, crepuscular production and lyrics of striking emotional acuity – imagine a supergroup consisting of Banks, Florence Welch and London Grammar.’ Manchester Evening News
CAii is an exciting singer-songwriter and producer from Manchester, who fuses pop with dark production taking influence from Banks, Billie Eilish, Tula and Fleetwood Mac. She has been writing and performing for a number of years, using music as therapy and an emotional outlet. She recently branched out into production to curate her own unique sound.

CAii released her EP ‘tease.’ in May 2019, addressing themes such as lust, pride, fear and manipulation. The EP and singles ‘The Carousel’ and ‘Slowly’ were supported by several blogs including LA on Lock, Unheard Gems and Sora Music. Tease is the first of four EPs to be released in 2019, chronicling the rise and fall of a deeply unhealthy couple, with the next chapter ‘tangle.’ due for release in summer, and the first single ‘Fuel’ coming out on 30th July.
Having played Sundown Festival, Dot to Dot and Indie Week and gigged in Manchester, Liverpool and London, CAii is a captivating performer who is always fully immersed in her music, making it easy for the audience to connect with her.
