Caitelen is a singer-songwriter, worship leader, multi-instrument musician, recording artist, and producer.
An early interest in playing music by ear led to songwriting by age 12 and worship leading by 14. After studying worship arts and studio production, and earning a Masters in Creative Writing, Caitelen went on to release 3 studio albums and 10 singles, and has taken her music ministry on the road, playing concerts and leading worship across the country and abroad.
Inspired by her faith and writing largely from her own experiences, Caitelen’s music often confronts themes of beauty in brokenness and hope in seasons of suffering. Collaborations with acclaimed animator Full Of Eyes have brought songs like the haunting Good Friday song, “It Is Finished (Tetelestai),” to audiences around the world, and Caitelen’s single, “I Will Stand In Your Love,” appears in the 2021 Hollywood film “Roe V. Wade.” Caitelen co-produced her 2021 album, “Heart In Remission” with Grammy winning producers in New York City.
When she’s not making music, Caitelen is a homeschooling mom of two, doula, and ministry partner alongside her husband who pastors a church in Santa Fe, NM.
