ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Caroline Monroe is a city girl who sings country songs.

A native Atlantan who now lives in Athens, Ga. - the indy music capital of the world - Caroline fronted a rock group, Umpteen. But she realized her heart was in country music and the high lonesome sound of the Appalachian South. She met Athens Outlaw Fester Hagood, now with King Cotton, a Southern rocker who had a similar passion for country.

They played Athens' clubs as a duet while Hagood produced Caroline's first CD, "Ghost Town," backed by some of the top musicians in Athens. The songs range from humor ("See Rock City") to heartbreak ("Right Here In My Heart") to hell-raising ("Sunday Sinner").

Since her CD's release, Caroline has been playing clubs in Athens and Atlanta. She's branching out from hard-edged country into a more reflective alt-country style that suits her distinctive, haunting voice - she's been compared to Emmylou Harris, Iris Dement and Lucinda Williams. Mostly, people say Caroline sounds like a country Natalie Merchant. And her fans enjoy Caroline's relaxed and unpretentious stage presence.

As she grows as an artist, Caroline is writing more and more of her own material to match her strikingly original sound.

I love it! “Right here in my heart” and “Brand New Chapter of Life” are still two of my favorites but I really like “this old town” too… Who am I kidding I love them all! =o)

Excellent
I was fortunate enough to stumble across Caroline Monroe while looking for artists to perform at a benefit. After hearing a snippet of her songs, I bought this cd and I'm glad I did.

The strongest songs on this collection are "Mystery Mourner," "This Old Town," and "She Regrets Her Tattoos."

The good folks at CD BABY sent the disc to me in quick time, in perfect condition and with quality care. Thank y'all!

Great voice, nice catchy lyrics.
Caroline has a great sounding voice. Her songs are well done and very catchy. This is her first CD but I'm sure it won't be her last. Superb!

Great New Country Sound with Old Country Style
This great new CD has great catchy lyrics, (She Regrets Her Tatoos, See Rock City, Ghost Town, Brand New Chapter of Life), with some music that really stays in your head. It's a great singalong for a road trip. Keep watching Caroline and these great songwriters. We'll hear more from them I'm sure.

Excellant country music from Athens, GA
Great work. The title track is a beautiful song and sticks out in the forefront in my opinion. Caroline's beautiful voice is right out front and she sings of people that I can relate to. Great songwriting, great CD!
