At her core, Nashville’s Caitlin Rose is a storyteller and a song-crafter who is more interested in what’s being produced than how it helps her along the way. Though much of her acclaimed debut 'Own Side Now' was personally-inspired, what stood out most was its ability to paint a picture and tell a near-cinematic story. With her follow-up, 'The Stand-In', Rose seems more interested in telling tales than spilling confessionals. 'The Stand-In' seamlessly melds pedal-steel guitar with restless pop beats, creating lush instrumentals that build on the more spare construction of 'Own Side Now'. ”These songs are all based in sentiment. We wrote the stories to convey a feeling,” says Rose. The result is infinitely more universal.

It’s fitting that Rose wrote her first song at sixteen as a substitution for a high school paper. Even as a means to an end, she recognized the power of music and melody. Growing up in Nashville to music industry parents (her mother, Liz Rose, is a songwriter who found success working with artists like Taylor Swift, Leann Womack and others), Rose inherited her mother’s “inclination towards melody. She references a long list of influences -- from Hank Williams to The Rolling Stones -- many of which would be easily found in her parents' record collections.

 “I’ve always been inspired by what others have done. she says.” This is evident in her penchant for covers. She considers herself not just a writer, but an interpreter of song, eager to take works she admires and expose others to their brilliance and also reinvent them in a way that upon listening, you might catch something you missed before. “For me the intention behind any song is writing a good one,” Rose says “and to create something worthy enough to share with other people.” Rose’s songs, however, are way beyond worthy. They’re downright necessary!
