Caroline Rose On World Cafe

  • Listen:
    Caroline Rose on World Cafe Caroline Rose is host Stephen Kallao's guest on the next World Cafe. Her new album is a dramatic departure from the alt-country sound of her first two albums; she calls her new genre Schizodrift. On Loner, her razor-sharp wit and smart lyrics tackle subjects like single motherhood to political topics like sexism. We'll hear about that, her sonic evolution, and ambitions as a producer. Also, hear a few songs from Loner performed live, on the next World Cafe.
Compare her 2014 album I Will Not Be Afraid to her latest, LONER, and you'll find that this singer-songwriter has arrived.
Caroline Rose has arrived. I know this sounds a little unusual to say considering her new record LONER is her third studio album. But for a point of reference, if you listen to a moment of "Red Bikini Waltz" from her 2014 album, I Will Not Be Afraid, to her new album, LONER ... Yeah, it's a little different. But this is who Rose is.
