Kaitlin Stark “hindsight”


Singer-songwriter Kaitlin Stark released, “hindsight,” a beautiful reflection on the past, capturing the essence of nostalgia and introspection. Kaitlin’s smooth and captivating vocals take listeners on a cinematic journey through memories and emotions. This song intricately captures the emotional journey of reminiscing about past relationships over a stunning musical landscape.

“hindsight,” written with American Idol alum Hunter Metts and heavily-synced producer Dave Thomas Jr, is about wishing you could go back in time and fight harder for someone. The production is heavily inspired by dramatic moments in movies and the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Charli Adams, and Nightly—an ethereal, cinematic moment, resembling the feeling you might get tilting your head up toward the sky while it’s raining.

Kaitlin’s extraordinary ability to write songs is evident in this track, along with the dozens of cuts she has with other rising pop artists such as Rachel Grae and Blake Proehl, totaling in the tens of millions of streams. “hindsight” is a beautiful new addition to her discography, showcasing her growth as an artist and her commitment to creating music that resonates deeply with listeners. With its emotive feel, “hindsight” stands as a testament to Kaitlin Stark’s talent and artistry, promising to leave a lasting impression on all who listen.

There isn’t anything Kaitlin Stark is afraid to say — at least when it’s in song form.

As a singer-songwriter, Kaitlin is interested in the business of creating something that didn’t exist previously, and is especially interested in doing so thoughtfully and emotionally. She’s been writing since she was a teenager and has been playing instruments (particularly guitar and piano) even longer, and has now brought her small-town Georgia roots with her to the present moment creating in Nashville, Tennessee.

Kaitlin explores the big questions in her music, poking at the existential ideas of “why are we here?” She sees introspection and sadness as good and necessary things, and believes that the best reaction someone could possibly have to one of her songs is to cry. It’s a moment of connection to her, and creating a space where people can experience that kind of release is her favorite part of writing music.

If the honesty of Taylor Swift were to cross with the emotional touch of Phoebe Bridgers and the sonic savviness of Julia Michaels in a song, it might sound something like what Kaitlin strives to create as a writer.

Words and phrases are her jumping-off points — a passing comment or greeting from a stranger might just turn into her next great track. She believes that even if only a handful of people hear her work, it still matters if it meant something to them.

While already adept when it comes to writing for others, Kaitlin has also begun releasing music of her own as an artist this year.
