Tom Speed of PASTE Magazine has written an extraordinary review of Camilla."Folksinger Caroline Herring has quietly but steadily been building a canon. It began back with her debut record, Twilight, in 2001. From the start she received many accolades, including “Best New Artist” at SXSW. Since then, the praise has continued to come in droves for her five subsequent albums. Camilla continues this construction project with her now-trademark deft craftsmanship, stirring storytelling and timeless tales that reveal a songwriter whose gifts of keen observation are being honed more sharply with each outing. Here, with Camilla, we have again Herring the historian, the storyteller who excels at chronicling and mythologizing historical figures who might otherwise exist only on the fringes of American folklore. Her assured, haunting voice and the beauty of her melodies belie the weight of her topics..." Read more at http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2012/08/caroline-herring-camilla.html

Folk Alley is streaming the entirety of Caroline's new album, Camilla. Of course you can listen to a few tracks here on the website (and buy a signed copy!), but why not stream the entire album while you have the chance? Check it out here athttp://www.folkalley.com/music/firstlisten/caroline-herring Thanks to Kim Ruehl for the lovely review. Here are a few of her words: There’s something about the way Caroline Herring delivers a line like, “Mama, sweet mama, where are you going with all your babies and that casserole?” Indeed, this is the opening line of “Camilla” – the title track on her new album – and it sets the tone and scene for the rest of the exquisitely written songs included therein. You know even as she’s delivering that line, this isn’t just a single song. This is a world in which women know they must take a casserole with them when they’re trying to appeal to justice. (The next line: “I’m going to the jailhouse in Camilla, Georgia, to see a woman and ask for her parole.”) You can listen to Camilla in the same way you might drive through such a town. ...It’s a difficult world in Herring’s Camilla."
