Caregiver Shares New Single “Reason”

Sacramento-based musician Caregiver (the new project Lindsey Bitson) has spent a lot of time with her thoughts, reflecting on heartache, substance abuse, and self-discovery. She’s channeled it all into an absolutely dreamy debut album titled Bathing in Yesterday’s Fires.

Bitson’s proclivity for emotive vocals and storytelling comes to life in a lush, sonic landscape. The record is a vulnerable exploration of the human condition with mesmerizing production from Jon Joseph that envelops listeners in her experience. The result? A cleansing resolution–cathartic and brutally honest songwriting at its best.

Caregiver’s latest “Reason” was inspired by a relationship that Bitson ended. “I sabotaged a relationship to avoid being hurt,” Bitson explains. “Such an ironic characteristic, self-sabotage. It creates the exact thing I fear. When we reconnected, it was as if he could see right through me. There was nothing left for us. If I hadn’t been so distant and destructive, maybe things could have worked out differently. We swung outside on hammocks on opposing sides of his porch and it felt like goodbye. That week I wrote Reason.”
