One of the musical finds for me at this year’s SXSW was Caitlin Rose, a 23 year old country/alt country/Americana/rock/whatever singer-songwriter from Nashville. Getting to see her wasn’t easy: I missed her on Friday and finally caught her on Saturday. But she turns out to be the real deal. So much so that I was not surprised in the least to find out that Caitlin sings on the forthcoming album from Laura Cantrell.
Here is a professionally produced video which has the studio version of Shanghai Cigarettes. Turning the sound up here would not be a bad idea.
