Caroline Herring

Lantana

Caroline Herring : Lantana : Signature Sounds Being altogether unfamiliar with Caroline Herring, I was pleasantly surprised after listening to her latest offering, Lantana. The Georgia-based singer/songwriter, who, with the release of this record, recently came off a self-induced hiatus filled with the joyous, albeit time-consuming, immersion into family life, has crafted a record that reflects just that. Here is a woman that doesn’t have the time to beat around the bush with cute one-liners and overproduced pap. Herring’s songs are straightforward tales, effectively conveyed by tight, yet loose feeling, country/folk instrumentation in the vein of Wilco’s more recent Sky Blue Sky or Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline. All tracks suitable for airplay Reviewed by Trevor Edmonds : February 2008
