Caroline Rose is a songwriter, producer and wildly entertaining live performer, who is responsible for the incredible albums Loner and Superstar — and — our "8Track" theme music.

She's a hometown favorite at WFUV who is now based in Austin, but her song choices take us in a lot of different directions. They are all recent discoveries and rediscoveries for Caroline, and in telling me about them, she also described how they're influencing her next album.
