I first met Caitlin Rose in 2010 backstage at Bonnaroo. Of course I had known of her for quite some time, but meeting her in person was a real treat. Here is the song she played for us in a media tour bus way back when.
Let us not mince words here, Caitlin is one of Nashville’s best songwriters. That’s not just me saying that either…
“Rose’s voice is one of the finest instruments to grace country music in decades” – Album of the Week – The Sunday Times
“We’ve been waiting with bated breath for Caitlin Rose’s sophomore effort The Stand-In” – American Songwriter
“Through her indie-leaning yet twanging vocals, Rose reveals a talent for conveying her emotions through opaque narratives instead of straight forward confessionals” – Rolling Stone
Caitlin will be coming into the Lightning 100 studios Thursday, March 7th at 3pm, just 48 hours removed from the release of her sophomore effort The Stand-In. Don’t forget, Lightning 100 will be presenting her album release show at Mercy Lounge on March 9th. Tickets available at the Concert Calendar.

After missing Tristen’s in store performance at Grimey’s with We Were the States, I returned to The Basement later that evening for her second performance of the night. It was a Black Cab Session‘s showcase featuring several underground Nashville artists. If you’ve never visited their website, please take the time to visit their site. Black Cab Session’s are primarily filmed in the UK. Black Cab Session’s decided to tour the Untied States documenting different music scene all around the states.
The first few times I’ve seen Tristen perform it was singing backup for Caitlin Rose. Later she made an appearance on The Non-Commissioned Officers “Soundtrack to Make-out With Violence.” It was my first time seeing Tristen with the full band featuring Jordan Caress’ beautiful voice for backup and Buddy Hughen on guitar. Jordan Caress can do nothing wrong in my book. I’ve seen her work with countless people and her voice always sounds perfect. I’m looking forward to Tristen’s full length album, coming out in February I believe, but until then download her free Eager For Your Love 7″ by clicking below.
