Lila’Angelique or LA was born Caitlin Harkin in New York City. Her mother sang on Broadway, and her father runs a professional recording studio. She began studying classical violin and voice from the age of 7.
She studied voice intensively under Elizabeth Carter, a former “Queen of the Night” at the Met. Well known for her unusually high register, LA landed a paid soprano position in her church choir when she was 17. She was featured in many solos, including the top soprano in Allegri Miserere. Briefly attending University of Kentucky to study opera, she performed the lead in several shows, including Amahl in Amahl and the Night Visitors and Ariel in The Tempest.
LA has been traveling with Thoth and studying his unique violin and prayformance method for almost four years. She loves drawing, making costumes, doing make-up, listening to opera on her iPod, and watching YouTube videos.
