Caitlin Rose is a singer-songwriter who started out as a country artist and in the span of a few albums (which adds up to quite a few years in her case), found herself playing a mixture of indie rock, pop, and country. This change came to the front on CAZIMI, her 2022 release following a long gap where she adopted a somewhat idiosyncratic sound that feels more like Rose playing indie pop with an underlying country sensibility than a simple case of genre crossing. That said, she actually was never really a straight up contemporary country artist in the first place. Her earlier albums had a distinct throwback vibe that reached a few decades back to the country pop sound of Linda Ronstadt and friends. She sings in a sweet voice that compounds the comparison a bit, along with well-deserved references to Patsy Cline that frequently swirl around her work.
