I used to host an internet radio show in Gainesville–and since I’ve moved away I’ve missed doing that very much. Podcasting on your own turns out to be much harder than working with all the great equipment and coworkers at GrowRadio. So, I ask for your patience and hope for your interest in hearing me try to resume something that gives me great joy–compiling songs and stories. Let me know what you think, what works, what could be worked on. It’s a demo-heavy setlist from all over the last half-century and as Paul Westerberg says, it “rocks like murder.”

Episode 45: aired 11.10.2011


I think I heard Caitlin’s EP, Dead Flowers, but it didn’t make much of an impression on me. I only remember seeing the CD cover. I didn’t even recall her name when I decided to do a little research on the opener for tonight’s Justin Townes Earle show here in Tampa.

Shame on me.

This new album from Caitlin is silky smooth, fun and infectious as hell. I definitely wouldn’t classify the album as a “country” album though. No, I’d file it under the same label as Justin’s latest effort, Harlem River Blues. Kind of contemporary pop with country undertones? The kind of sound you might pick up at a Starbucks or hear on “All Songs Considered”. Normally, the Starbucks thing would be meant as a backhanded slap but that’s not the case here. I genuinely like the album, I just can’t find a better (more accurate) descriptor for the sound. Think of her as the more upbeat sister of Jessica Lea Mayfield. Her vocal stylings have drawn comparisons to Patsy Cline and I see no reason to disagree.

Anyhow, check out this album and if you’re in Tampa/St. Pete join me at the show tonight and let’s see how this 23 year old lays it down live.

Songs from Caitlin’s Daytrotter Session:
