‘Rose’s voice is one of the finest instruments to grace country music in decades’ – Album of the Week – The Sunday Times
‘One of the first truly great American albums of 2013’ – 9/10 Uncut
‘Own Side Now won deserved plaudits but this second effort really ups her game’ – 4/5 The Guardian
Nashville singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose has announced a date at Whelan’s on Sunday 8th September. Tickets €16.50 on sale from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie
Caitlin Rose returns with her follow up album, The Stand-In. The scope of her progression as an artist is palpable from the outset, and Rose herself concurs. “I have a tendency to work small so this album is like my first attempt at a high kick,” acknowledging Own Side Now as a more pared down recording.
Racking up Albums of the Week plaudits from The Sunday Times, The Independent, Independent on Sunday and Evening Standard, to Albums of the Year placing 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.
Working with old friends, Nashville producers and musicians Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson, and her bandmates Jeremy Fetzer (electric guitar) and Spencer Cullum (pedal & slide guitar), her crew was tightly bonded. Rose and her crew handpicked local Nashville musicians they knew would accentuate individual songs, with a veritable orchestra of players contributing cello, violin, saxophone, trumpet and mandolin. Careful pre-production deliberations concerning arrangements, a focus on achieving the best performances and a highly conducive studio atmosphere have paid off, with wildly good results.
The outpouring of acclaim Caitlin Rose generated with her debut is about to become a deluge. The Stand-In is Caitlin Rose unabashedly stating her case for being at the very forefront of the burgeoning ‘New Nashville’.
