I don’t think we’ve had too many country gigs come up on gig buddies, so let’s see how this goes down. Caitlin Rose is a proper country singer from Nashville – she has a classic country voice, some lovely catchy songs and a great band.
Listen to her here:
Here’s the promotional blurb:
If you fell in love with Nashville’s Caitlin Rose and her garlanded 2010 debut album, 'Own Side Now', you were in good company. Led by her golden nectar voice, an irrepressible personality matched with a gift for emotionally direct songwriting, and deliciously melodic country sounds, Caitlin Rose beguiled and flat-out, jaw-droppingly impressed wherever she turned.
Racking up Albums of the Week plaudits from The Sunday Times, The Independent, Independent on Sunday and Evening Standard, to Albums of the Year placings from Rough Trade Shops (#4), The Sunday Times (#3 Best Newcomer of 2010 and #2 Best Song for ‘Shanghai Cigarettes’), Time Magazine (#7), The Sun (#11) and remarkably Album of the Year at the Nashville Scene newspaper.
Festival audiences swooned to her magnetic stage presence at the iTunes Festival, on the main stage at Green Man, while End of the Road demanded an encore performance and upgraded her to the Big Top stage. She covered the Arctic Monkeys for a Record Store Day 7” released on Domino. From radio sessions with Lauren Laverne, Marc Riley and many more, to a sterling debut UK TV performance on BBC TV Newsnight Review, even the likes of venerated songwriter Nick Lowe chipped in, giving Caitlin Rose the nod for her cover of ‘Lately I’ve Let Things Slide’ on the Lowe Country tribute album.
