Who is Kaitlyn ni Donovan?

Kaitlyn ni Donovan is an American classically trained violinist and composer of experimental music, dream pop, and film scores, hailing from Portland, Oregon.

In the mid 1990s she performed regularly with a large group of players under her own name. These performances included strings, toy pianos, acoustic and electric instruments. This sound would become known as Chamber Pop or Baroque Pop in the Northwest music scene.

In 1999, Hush Records released ni Donovan's Songs for Three Days. Produced by Tony Lash, Three Days and the compilation Flag would launch Hush toward national distribution.

In 2000, ni Donovan joined the shoegaze band, The High Violets.
