I just saw her show with the darker dogs - only one hour ago... I´ve never heard of her until today. And what should I say? It was really really great! A very lovely person with music which is putting arms around you...
Hear an exclusive track from Caroline Martin in part two of my Peel Legends special on Dandelion Radio this month, streaming throughout October at various times at www.dandelionradio.com. Check the schedule on the website for when the shows go out.
And, for the fourth year, Dandelion Radio are hosting the official Festive Fifty. Voting is open at the website now.
Compelling songs that are beautiful but slightly unsettling delivered in a gentle voice that can bite when you least expect, intriguing and intoxicating, I find Caroline's music quite addictive.
For fans of Nina Nastasia, Cat Power, Gillian Welch.
