Caoilfhionn Rose (pronounced Keelin), is a singer, songwriter and producer who was born in
Manchester, England, with family routes in Northern Ireland and Yorkshire (UK). Emerging from a diverse
music scene, she ties together remnants of Manchester’s musical past with its evolving present. She has
collaborated with musicians from around the world and is perhaps best known for her work with Vini
Reilly of The Durutti Column: Collaborating on four songs on the Chronicle LX:XL album.
Caoilfhionn will release her long awaited sophomore album ‘Truly’ on April 9th on Gondwana Records
which was co-produced by Kier Stewart of The Durutti Column. It moves through a tapestry of curious
musical inflections; nods towards folk, jazz, ambient, electronica and even a subtle influence of
psychedelia. Rose’s song writing draws from a diverse palette of influences, including Building Instrument,
Rachel Sermanni, Alabaster dePlume and Broadcast. Rose also professes to a love for beautiful, stripped
back, piano based music, such as Dustin O’Halloran and label mate Hania Rani.
With Manchester’s Fletcher Moss Park proving especially inspiring, Rose’s debut album Awaken was
released in October 2018 on Gondwana Records. A deeply collaborative recording, co-produced by
Matthew Halsall, Caoilfhionn and members of her band, that draws on folk, psychedelia and subtle
electronica influences to produce something expansive, fragile and experimental.
