From her teen years pouring over the lyrics of her favorite music to her college days majoring in linguistics at Moody Bible Institute, McCaul's gifts manifest themselves in vibrant, insightful songs crafted with thoughtful precision reflecting a compassionate heart and deep intellect.

McCaul's talent was brought to the attention of Reunion Records by five-time SESAC Christian Songwriter of the Year and 2010 Gospel Music Association Producer of the Year, Jason Ingram, and she released her label debut, If It Leads Me Back, Jan. 17, 2012. The up-and-comer has already received much national attention during her short time on the music scene, with TLC reality program "Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta" inviting McCaul to perform "Take My Hand," from her new release, on the program. Additionally, Mark Hall, frontman for platinum-selling band Casting Crowns, asked McCaul to open on the group's "Come to the Well" tour last fall and this spring.
