Caroline Herring took a break from her music career to raise a family, but returned with an acclaimed new album, Lantana”, in 2008.
“When a release gets this good, words have a tendency to become superfluous. Herring’s antecedents lie in bluegrass, and her vision has been termed American Gothic but neither term gives her what she’s due. She’s a songwriter par excellence. Lantana is forty minutes, (too damn short by half!), of unadulterated listening pleasure.
