After significant touring, Caroline’s second album, 2014’s I Will Not Be Afraid, expanded her musical boundaries and embraced an eclectic variety of vintage pop, rockabilly, and roots rock influences. The album picked up satellite radio play, which helped spread the word about Rose’s music. As she gained a larger audience, she found herself wanting to make music that better suited her sense of humour, as well as her growing interest in contemporary pop sounds. After collecting a wider variety of instruments and learning more about production by assembling a home recording setup, Rose went into the studio with producer Paul Butler, who had previously worked with Devendra Banhart. The result, 2018’s Loner, released by New West Records was both adventurous and user-friendly and merged Rose’s serious ideas with her often humorous approach highlighted on ‘Money’ and ‘Soul No. 5’. Loner earned Rose her best reviews to date and helped set the stage for Superstar, a loose concept album about fame that saw her embrace modern pop. Most recently Caroline joined Courtney Barnett on the Here and There Tour in the US and is featured on the Milk! Records Here and There compilation.
