ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pollyanna is Caroline’s second original and solo album and was recorded in Barcelona, Spain in April, 2008. The recording was done in the same live, acoustic style as the first album, Back on the Train (2007). Again, each song is honest and unrefined, not edited or fiddled with, and totally organic - just like Caroline :)

Caroline tells stories pulled from her travels, her relationships, and what has concerned her in all that she has experienced in the past few years. Each song tells a different story, packed with honesty and personal experience. The stories are wordy and wise, detailed depictions of real life wrapped in universal themes of independence, loneliness and finding comfort within.

Last September Caroline traveled to Europe to begin her walk on the Camino de Santiago, as anticipated in her song El Camino (track 5 from Back on the Train). She began in St. Jean Pied de Port, France and walked for 30 days across 800k of northern Spain until she reached Santiago de Compostela. After she arrived in Santiago, she continued her walk for three more days to reach the Atlantic coast. In mid October, she went back to France to work and live on a small organic farm and vineyard in the Southwest, entertaining vendors and shoppers in the village markets on her days off. In late November she moved to vibrant Barcelona where she continued her adventuring and music writing.

These 10 original songs illustrate Caroline’s experiences and thoughts during her travels last fall. Songs are presented in the same order as they were written, moving as a pilgrim along the Camino de Santiago, to working on the farm and vineyard in France, to searching out a life for herself in Barcelona, and finally arriving home to spend Christmas with her family.


With her music, Caroline invites you to share in her adventures and explorations, and encourages you to continue discovering new ways of living life to its fullest.

Enjoy!!!

so good
This is the kind of album that I listen to from start to finish. Caroline's voice is honest and her lyrics are thought provoking. Sweet and soft guitar and voice combine with an energy that makes her music an important part of my auditory experience. I highly recommend this album!
