ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Produced by Pete Kennedy,
Narrow Lane Studios, Bridgehampton, New York

With "Sweet to Me" Caroline Doctorow and producer Pete Kennedy follow up the critically acclaimed ANOTHER COUNTRY with this new collection of originals songs and 1960's folk classics, all washed in stunning layers of acoustic walls of sound. Featuring famed multi-instrumentalist Pete Kennedy and members of Doctorow band "The Steamrollers" along with special guest Mike Auldridge (on "Measure My Love") this recording offers brand new renditions of folk classics such as Mary McCaslin's " Prairie in the Sky" Gordon Lightfoot's "For Lovin' Me" and Mickey Newbury's "Wish I Was" plus many more. "Sweet to Me" features twelve tracks in all, including two that were recorded live. Great examples of just how stellar Doctorow's band has become.

"My goal for this record was to try and sing so that the sound of my voice evokes the history of folk music and all it's great artists, somehow all rolled up into one sound. My own sound. This will always be a work in progress and will always be what I am working towards...the collection of songs on SWEET TO ME reflects this journey."

Another Great Album
I just listened to Sweet to Me, and then listened again, and again. It's just great!! Seamless and polished, with weight, humor and depth. The choice of songs is great and Pete Kennedy did a wonder job producing this.

loved, loved, loved this
I could listen to Doctorow's voice forever--compelling and seductive, yet incredibly innocent at the same time. Her new songs are as delicious as her cover material. An extraordinary album.

Lee Zimmerman review
"Caroline Doctorow Sweet to Me (Narrow Lane Records) Caroline Doctorow’s musical career has bequeathed an admirable repertoire, although she still resides well below the surface as far as popular acclaim is concerned. Regardless, with a rustic back porch stance that finds her akin to Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, Judy Collins and Lucinda Williams, she has all the makings of an understated star. Hiring Pete Kennedy to helm her new album, the aptly titled Sweet To Me, offers all the more reason to believe that Doctorow is ready to break beyond her limited following. Likewise, an assortment of assured covers – Gordon Lightfoot’s “For Lovin’ Me,” Donovan’s “Young Girl Blues” and the ever-reliable “Gentle on my Mind” among them – gives added impetus to bring in a bigger audience. Happily though, Doctorow’s beguiling delivery and seductive prowess stand up on their own and suggest that Doctorow is not only adept but accomplished."
