Singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose releases her sophomore album, The Stand-In , on March 5th on ATO Records. At the core of Rose’s musical heart, she’s a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. Blending confessional song with a strong penchant for storytelling, Rose’s unique voice and a talent for writing strong pop melodies sets her miles ahead of the alt-country-rock pack. She’s matured greatly as a songwriter since her 2011 debut Own Side Now and her new album is filled with pedal steel guitars, ballads and swinging rock and roll songs. Above it all floats her warm, inviting and sultry vocals. Caitlin plays Milkboy Philly on Wednesday, April 3rd. Tickets go on sale today at Noon.
