In her first release since appearing among the Top 30 of this year’s Australian Idol, Kaitlyn Thomas empowers women everywhere with her barnstorming new single, Pretty Little Thing, out April 14.

The powerful anthem, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, is about breaking free from societal stereotypes and embracing one's true self.

Inspired by her love for legends such as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Shania Twain, Kaitlyn has developed a sound that blends the best of country, rock, and pop.

Kaitlyn says, “Pretty Little Thing came about after being told I don't fit the mould and what is typically expected as a female artist. I wanted to write about embracing who I am and female empowerment.”  

“Writing this song with [Michael] Paynter and [Michael] Delo was like a Nashville experience, the song was written in a day, vocals laid the next and final production completed on the third day,” she adds. “Working with MSquared allowed me to dig deeper into who I am as an artist and really find my distinct sound that no one else is doing.”

The companion music video, filmed locally at the Race Track Betting Shed and shot by Benny Greggs, depicts all the dynamism of Kaitlyn’s live performance.

“I didn’t want to go down the storytelling road, I wanted to capture what it would look like live,” shares Kaitlyn. “The live audience we had, had never heard the song until the day of filming.” Watch the video below or here!

Kaitlyn's journey as a musician began at the age of eight, when she started writing her own songs. Since then, she has honed her craft and established herself as one of Australia's most promising new talents.  

The singer-songwriter has represented Australia at the World Championships of Performing Arts taking home prestigious medals, performed with Opera Australia in La Boheme, and has been a passionate ambassador for anti-bullying organisation, Bully Zero since she was 12 years old.

A graduate of both the junior and senior Academy of Country Music, Kaitlyn has performed at many of Australia’s biggest festivals including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Road to Roma and Whittlesea Country Music Festival, and has opened for artists Casey Donovan, Amber Lawrence, Andrew Swift and Darlinghurst.
