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 loss of her brother Alex Thomas-Haug. The album began as a private expression of loss and 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 2014 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' to a sold out crowd at The Needle Vinyl Tavern in Edmonton. Following the release Cayley began a three month 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 is attending the inaugural Singer/Songwriter Residency happening this March at the Banff Centre. Thomas will be joined by collaborator and longtime friend Tasy Hudson who played drums on Cayley’s last album. Together they aim to create a strong, commercial effort that will help Cayley to break through to the next level of the Canadian music industry.
