Caity Baser

We might be baubles-deep in preparation for 2023's Official Christmas Number 1 race right now, but 2024 is scarily close. So close, in fact, that the BRITs have announced the shortlist for their coveted Rising Star '24 award.

Having been secured by the likes of Adele, Sam Smith and FLO in years gone by, the BRITs Rising Star 2024 nominees have officially been announced as Caity Baser, The Last Dinner Party and Sekou.

Right now, we're here to talk about Caity and her unique brand of unabashed, playful pop.

Let's get to know her a little better, shall we?

Who is BRITs Rising Star 2024 nominee Caity Baser?

Caity Baser is a singer-songwriter born in Southampton, United Kingdom.

Following a stint as a supermarket worker, her first releases included Friendly Sex and X&Y, before breakout hit Pretty Boys saw Caity claim her first-ever Official Top 40 single in 2022.

Since then, Caity's released a steady string of singles including Leave Me Alone and latest track I Love Making Bad Boys Cry. Having played at Reading and Leeds Festivals this summer, Caity's soon to embark on her biggest-ever tour and will release her much-anticipated mixtape Still Learning in March 2024.

What has Caity Baser said about her BRITs Rising Star 2024 nomination?

Speaking on her acknowledgement, Caity said: "When I heard that I've been nominated for the BRITs Rising Star award this year, I literally screamed for 5 minutes and chucked everything around my room!

"I used to watch the awards on TV every year when I was a kid but had no idea how a kid from an estate in Southampton would ever get there. Now to be shortlisted for the Rising Star award for next! Little old me… All I have to say is I am so happy and thank you so much. It's really a dream come true!"

What does Caity Baser sing?

Caity's highest-charting hit in the UK so far is Pretty Boys, which peaked at Number 26 in March 2022.

Elsewhere, she's appeared on collaborations with Sigala and Mae Muller (Feels This Good) and Joel Corry (Dance Around It).

You might've also heard Caity on a remix of Campbell and Alcemist's Would You (go to bed with me?); a reworking of Touch & Go's Top 5 1999 hit Would You...?.
