Caitlin Jane Bio

As a rising voice on the music stage, Caitlin Jane has a unique presence—offering not only amazing gifts of poetic songwriting and performance, but delivering with these a passionate message of hope in a broken world.  With piano-driven tunes and rich vocals, her heart-felt faith is interwoven through each one of her songs.  “The emotion in her music and depth of her lyrics make Caitlin Jane one of the most gripping Christian artists today,” commented Ray Ruddy (President, Gerard Health Foundation/Life Prizes).  Her stirring debut EP, Ashes into Beauty, produced by Alfonso DiGirolamo III (Gold Record Producer), launched Caitlin into the music scene in 2007.  Caitlin Jane’s sophomore album, Coming Season, was produced by Glenn Barratt (two-time Grammy Award Winner), and unlocked an even greater maturity in her songwriting and vocal ability.  Touring nationally and internationally, Caitlin Jane has opened for renowned artists including Todd Agnew and BarlowGirl, and has performed at a wide variety of venues—churches, conferences, universities, and music festivals (Creation East).  

In addition to her albums, Caitlin Jane has two visually stunning, award-winning music videos. The internationally-reaching “Unborn”, produced by Glenn Elliott (Cord3 Films) won Gold at the 2010 WEVA Awards. This music video and its accompanying Unborn: Please Keep Me DVD share a powerful, yet gentle and grace-filled narrative, celebrating the sanctity of life. “Unborn,” has been instrumental in helping save countless little one’s lives, and the DVD has been very effective in many pregnancy resource centers’ counseling and outreach ministries throughout the nation.  Equally inspiring, the whimsical, “Sing Over Us” music video, produced by James Knightly and Jessica Christine Ferraro portrays the heart Caitlin has poured into child advocacy for almost 15 years now through Compassion International.  Using her bold and beautiful voice, she champions the cause of those who are voiceless and helps release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.  “Sing Over Us” won 2nd place for Best Music Video at the International Christian Film Festival in 2015. 

Caitlin Jane has sung at numerous events honoring and advocating for life, including the National March for Life in Washington D.C., as well as pregnancy center banquets across the country.  She has used music as an outreach to inner city rescue missions, and has done concerts overseas with Made In Hope—an organization that liberates women and children out of the darkness of human trafficking.  Her music career has expanded beyond singing, opening doors for ministry in speaking to women’s groups and young people.  As the recipient of the 2016 Kindred Award for Female Contemporary Artist of the Year, she has been recognized for her talent, yet music isn’t just about performing to Caitlin Jane—rather, music is an opportunity to worship and give glory to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In recent years, Caitlin Jane has walked an unexpected journey and has received a second chance at life.  In June 2014, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was considered inoperable by several of the most renowned neurosurgeons in the U.S..  However, it was a series of providential events and her connection with the wonderful filmmaker and actor, Bruce Marchiano (Alison’s Choice), which led her to the only surgeon in the country who could safely remove the tumor and restore her to a healthy life.  The following year, in February 2015, she underwent life-saving endoscopic brain surgery in Los Angeles, California at the Skull Base Institute.  The tumor posed serious risks to her critical nerves and brain stem, but by God’s healing grace she is able today to walk, talk, sing, hear, and see.

Just two months after surgery, when she was turning a corner in her recovery, Caitlin’s soon-to-be fiancé, and now husband, Jamie, was diagnosed with cancer.  All they could do was trust the Lord with complete abandon and faith, once again placing their lives and future in His sovereign hands.  Jamie finished his chemo treatment just five days before their September 2015 wedding, and the couple remains truly in awe of the many miracles God has granted along their journey.  “We’ve learned to live on purpose, to take no day for granted, and to immerse ourselves in daily prayer—lessons I don’t ever want to forget,” Caitlin reflects.  The most amazing miracle was yet to unfold shortly into their marriage.  The newlywed couple was told that due to chemo treatments, the chances of having biological children would be nearly impossible, but God decided to bless them with a baby boy, which astounded the doctors!  Caitlin Jane’s most recent single, “Beautiful Mess,” (2016) depicts through song their story of faith and courage…holding onto hope when all seemed hopeless, and seeing beauty in the midst of life’s chaos and mess.

“Music transcends the barriers we encounter when communicating truth and faith,” Caitlin Jane shares. “…If I want to be authentic, then Christ must be at the center of everything I do.  I pray I never compromise on this.  I want to praise God, who has captured my heart, with every breath I take.”  The great Russian novelist, Dostoevsky, penned the simple, yet profound statement, “Beauty will save the world.”  This has embodied the very essence of Caitlin Jane’s mission—using the beautiful things in music, media and art to worship Jesus Christ, while conveying eternal truth and honoring the dignity of every human life.
