I’ve just spent the past day listening to a new CD by Nashville based folk singer, Caroline Brewer. Caroline is a good friend of Sarah’s from her days at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. I’ve heard Sarah mention Caroline before, and then I heard that she had a CD coming out. While I totally trusted Sarah, there’s always part of me that knows that lots of people have friends who have CDs coming out, and you’re never really sure what the quality of the CD is going to be. Well, as I said above, I’ve spent the past day or so listening to the tracks on Caroline Brewer’s “A Me-Shaped Hole” and I’ve been really enjoying it.
According to Caroline’s Facebook Fan page and her MySpace Music page, she’s in the Folk Rock/Americana/Indie musical genres. Considering the fact that I really enjoy listening to Patty Griffin, Indigo Girls, Ryan Adams, Ben Harper and others, it’s not surprising that I really enjoy Caroline’s music. She has a really beautiful, strong voice, but it’s never over-powering. She’s got a great group of musicians playing with her on this album, and it’s definitely an album that you can just sit and listen to in its entirety. After listening to it for a day, my favorite track on the album is “Blackbird” (listen to it here or on iTunes), and I also really like Sally, Paper Airplane and Let it Go.
I think you’re definitely going to start Caroline Brewer’s name more often – and I’m guessing that “Blackbird” will get picked up some stations as a great single for the album. Caroline’s got a great sound and her album “A Me-Shaped Hole” is a really soothing, delightful album to listen to. Here are some places where you can find Caroline and either grab the album or stay updated with her music:
