Caitlen Bailey, a young lady who loves to entertain and with undoubted vocal talent. Caitlen is an extremely popular and in demand singer working across the UK & abroad.
Caitlen’s love for the stage began in her early years with her very first performance, cast as Aladdin at just age 9 years old. This first role and experience of being on the stage enlisted a deep routed love and passion for performing. Caitlens love for the stage continued with roles in another show of Aladdin, The Little Shop of Horrors, Bugsy Malone and a more serious role of Mary Warren in The Crucible. Caitlens high school days were mainly spent either rehearsing for shows in the school theatre or singing in the music department very quickly becoming known as The Voice of the school. Gaining a grade A* in Drama and then going on to A-Level Theatre Studies, again A*, it was the obvious that a path in performance was the only career route for this naturally talented performer.
Caitlen undertook training in dance throughout her youth and also attended actor training classes with TV & Film actor, Ken Kitson. All these experiences taught Caitlen the necessary skills for commanding a stage and projecting confidence and emotion.
Vocal training from many sources including the BVA, was also taken allowing Caitlen to sing controlled and powerfully a wide genre of music including classical, musical theatre, jazz, pop and rock.
From around 14 years of age Caitlen took every opportunity to sing, performing at open mic nights and also with numerous bands. It became clear to Caitlen that to fulfil her yearn and passion to entertain that she would become a solo artiste.
Caitlen has been performing as a solo artiste for nearly 7 years and currently works across the country and abroad for weddings, corporate events, private parties, holiday parks, hotels, casinos, restaurants, clubs and pubs. There has been recent strong interest from various Cruise companies for Caitlen to perform with an on board resident live band as a guest entertainer as she is able to work with backing tracks and with dots.
Caitlen has also been performing as a wedding singer for several years and it has become a great love of Caitlens as it is such an honour to be a part of a couples special day. Caitlen loves to tailor the wedding entertainment to make each wedding as unique and personal as possible for the bride and groom to be.
As young a girl Caitlen was constantly dressing up in Mums clothes and high heels and loved anything that glittered. This love of all that glitters has most certainly transferred into how Caitlen dresses and presents herself for stage. Caitlen has built up a wardrobe of wonderful gowns and stage costumes appropriate for all types of events and loves nothing more that making sure she stands out from the crowd. Presentation is paramount to this talented singer.
Caitlen decided as a singer that she wanted to be able to present clients with specific shows so that an event could be directed towards a specific audience. Caitlen developed a show called Pop Go The Divas which is a tribute to modern pop divas such as Rihanna, Jesse J, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and more. This shows has been popular with casinos, nightclubs and holiday parks as it appeals to a younger audience.
Caitlen has since developed a show which is a hit for a wide age range of audiences called Supreme Gold, a tribute to motown. This show includes all the big hits from all the motown divas and has been a huge success for wedding receptions and corporate events.
Caitlen recognised a significant look and sound alike to the Dutch jazz singer Caro Emerald and decided that it would be a very fitting tribute show. The tribute show is called “A Night Like This” and has been popular with 1920’s theme parties and masonic lodges. Caro Emerald is a growing success worldwide and is set to be a huge hit in the UK very soon. Caitlens tribute show is the first in the world and has been acknowledged by Caro Emerald herself!!
Other specific shows are in production including a James Bond theme show and a tribute to the dance anthems of the 90’s.
