Debut EP from solo artist, Caine Rose, from rural Virginia. Hailing from a long line of mountain folk that settled part of southwestern Virginia in the early 19th century, and migrated from Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and France from as early as the 1600s, Rose has American and European folk music in his blood. These four tracks are inspired by his passion for ancient acoustic stringed music, traditional folk, bluegrass, as well as more modern ambient and electronic soundscapes, and the caustic strains of black metal, with lyrics and vocals that emote the depth and frailty of love and love lost.


released May 4, 2017

All music written and performed by Caine Rose with the exception of generous contributions by Daniel Klyne.

Recorded and mixed by Caine Rose in Virginia.
Engineered and mastered by Daniel Klyne at Wilt Hollow Workhouse Studio in Pennsylvania.

This EP could not have been produced without the many broken hearts I've endured in loving and losing the ones I thought would never leave. The ones that swore they'd never go. The ones that gave me everything and then took it all away. The ones I will never stop loving. The ones that gave me the reason to not give up. I am still here and they are all gone, but the scars, the heartache, the revelations, the lingering recollections of love still live on.

Track Name: My Lady
Fair lady- where have you been?
My lady- forever, it's been

And the sun rises high on our love
And the moon shines bright on my love
Track Name: Never Before
Never have I- found true love like this before
Never will I- find you again
You were alone- wounded and lost without me
I was alone- I rescued thee

And the moon shined bright
And all the stars came out that night
Everything seemed right
Where are you now?

We were in love- you were my only true love
We were as one- I loved you
The stars were aligned- nothing could tear us apart
You were the one- now you're gone
Track Name: You Took It All Away
Your smile- took away all the tears
And your laugh- made me feel again
Your touch- brought me back to life
And your love- made me whole again

Then you took it away

You took it away
You took it away from me
Everything I had
You took it away from me
Track Name: Dragonfly
