Vulnerability & Intimacy Underscore Singer-Songwriter Caley Conway's Music

Singer-songwriter Caley Conway.

Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter Caley Conway has been on the scene for quite some time. But it wasn’t until the last couple years that she started releasing music under her own name.

Her latest EP titled Surrounded Middle was released earlier this year. It’s an intimate look at Conway’s worldview, underscored by a group of musicians she continues to work with. Conway and her band will perform this Saturday at the Cactus Club, and she explains how the addition of these musicians changes her performances:

"There’s a much bigger rush and like, more gratification I would say because you are sharing in the sentiment that you are trying to emote ... When it goes really well, there’s nothing like that feeling," she explains.
