Caroline Herring in-store this Saturday!
It's been just north of five months since the last time we had the lovely Caroline Herring here in the store for a performance. In the meantime, she released Lantana, which you should really take a moment and listen to on our listening station here in the store. But don't take our word for it...
All Music Guide: "The women Herring writes are all ordinary, and extraordinary, in the ways we all are, but Herring's ability to illuminate their hearts and souls is truly something special." (4-star review)
Paste: "...Herring effortlessly plumbs the emotional depths of her songs with her evocative alto. Her delivery...makes this song cycle resonant in more ways than a simple, rootsy singer/songwriter album ought to."
No Depression: "Insightful, evocative writing is the common denominator of Lantana...a compelling acoustic album."
Pop Matters: "...the artistry involved makes it accessible to all listeners... She's talking about the situation of all of us in a world not of our making, where our deepest impulses aren't always our best ones, and even when we try hard, we can't always win."
Robert Earl Keen: "Caroline Herring confidently returns to the forefront of the American roots music scene with her new album Lantana."
She's a songwriting treasure, and we're proud that she calls Decatur home. This very Saturday (May 3rd), she'll play Decatur CD at 1pm. Hope to see you then, y'all...
