Caitlin Rose has a fresh and gentle face, but her sweet demeanor seems deceiving when you listen to her fearless and energetic Nashville country style. The 23 year old hides no controversial topic in her songs, a brashness that gives her wry country-blues that added bump in character. With a vocal style that is compared to Loretta Lynn, Rose's popularity in Europe exploded very early in her career. And before she even had the chance to release a full debut album in the states, she was listed on NME's "Cool List" in 2010

Since the release of her Dead Flowers EP in 2008, Rose has performed alongside a number of top artists. Her debut LP, Own Side Now, was released in August 2010 in Europe and this past March here in the states.
