Cayley Thomas is a singer, guitarist and songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. Classically trained in voice & theatre, Cayley's credits include a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Alberta. Since graduating in 2013 Cayley has been featured on many of Edmonton’s main stages including the Winspear, the Citadel, the Eva O. Howard and the Hawrelak Park Amphitheater. Cayley was also finalist on the CBC television series ‘Triple Sensation,’ which featured young Canadians who act, sing and dance.
These days Cayley also embraces the world of the singer/songwriter. In 2013 she released a five-song EP 'Ash Mountains,' written after the sudden loss of her brother Alex Thomas-Haug. The album began as a private expression of grief but went on to reach audiences across the country. ‘Ash Mountains’ peaked at #1 on CJSR 88.5 and #3 on CKUA 94.9.
Invitations to the 2013 Edmonton and Canmore Folk Music Festivals continued to pave the way for this ambitious artist. In 2015 she was selected to play at the Winter Lights Festival in Iceland as a part of a cultural exchange between Alberta Music and the Reykjavik Tourism Board. In April 2016 Cayley released her first full length album 'Weird Love.' Following the release Cayley began an acting contract with The Freewill Shakespeare Company, playing the part of Juliet in Romeo and Juliet.
Cayley is currently working to write her third album. She just got back the inaugural Singer/Songwriter Residency at The Banff Centre. You can find her in Toronto, feverishly writing and experimenting with different instrumentation.
