Indie Artist Caroline Rose Is Proud of New Albums Vulnerability, Despite Moments of Regret
LOS ANGELES (AP) During a recent performance at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, indie musician Caroline Rose disappeared from the stage and emerged moments later atop a table in the back of the room.
Were going to do a trust fall, they told the audience, encouraging concertgoers to gather around before plunging backward into the sea of people and letting it carry her back to the stage.
The stunt was emblematic of her latest album admittedly, their most unguarded yet about a breakup and its aftermath. One to always hide behind humor, Rose said this level of vulnerability was new for her and that she is still processing whether it was even the right choice.
When Im writing the material, it feels really cathartic. And Im like, Wow, I made something beautiful from this really dark time. But performing the songs has been totally different, they said of having to recount those dark memories over and over.
But despite having some huge moments of regret, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist tends to think it was ultimately worth it. Because Im fine. And, you know, hopefully, my ex is fine, they grinned sheepishly.
