Caroline Kole, Only Slightly Emotional Review
Caroline Kole is a rising Starstruck Entertainment artist that was first discovered performing at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe by country icon Reba McEntire when she was just 13. Shortly after, Kole was signed to a management deal with Starstruck Entertainment and a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. After a few years on tour as direct support for McEntire, Blake Shelton and more, Kole took time off to write – and quickly realized she was creating music more influenced by her favorite pop artists than her country music upbringing. In September of 2018, Kole joined forces with Toronto-based producer/artist Pusher to release “BTDT,” which staked its claim on several Spotify and Apple Music playlists. In October, NYC-based electronic duo VAVO released a tropical house version of Kole’s “Right Now.” The dance mix, which features Kole’s vocals and lyrical aptitude, hit No. 32 on the Billboard Dance chart, No. 16 on the Mediabase Dance chart, and has been featured on several coveted Apple Music and Spotify playlists. Kole is now releasing her second EP from Starstruck Entertainment titled, Only Slightly Emotional. The six song EP includes previously released singles “What If,” “Strawberry Lip Smacker” and “Flow,” as well as a new single “Always Almost.”
