There is something blissful and sublime tone throughout Raina Rose‘s new album, Caldera. This is her fifth solo effort, a graceful work with a deep connection to the beauty and mystique of nature. Not surprisingly, Rose used to teach environmental science to kids on the Oregon coast about nine or so years ago, after graduating from high school in Portland. It didn’t take long for all the lush, green surroundings there to convince her that making music was her true calling.
Caldera was officially released Tuesday, but Rose is celebrating with a special release show tonight at the Cactus Cafe, 24th and Guadalupe, in the Texas Union on the UT campus. Opening the show is songwriter Rebecca Loebe. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the music starts at 8:30 p.m. Recommended.
