Now LA based, Kingsbury has released two singles, “Easy” and “Emeralds.” Kingsbury’s music is described as intensely personal, combined with dreamy textures. With her soulful voice, she aims to create a sound, she hopes brings comfort and movement to people.
Caroline Kingsbury on “Alone Again”
“Alone Again is about regaining control over a part of your life you didn’t realize was compromised. I framed the song around a relationship but it was never about a specific relationship or person, but rather about a season of immense change and learning to be honest with myself about my desires as I made the move from Nashville to Los Angeles. The act of physically moving away from everything that was comfortable liberated me and jolted me into the realization that I was having a hard time differentiating between what other people wanted for me and what I wanted for myself. I realized that pleasing the people around me was an innate part of my character, and that I had to actively fight that to be able to pursue the life I wanted.”
