Her 2017 EP release SKY is still gaining national press:

“Sky is top class roots rock. Caroline Ferrante is a master of her craft.”

- Joshua Smotherman, Middle Tennessee Music (Nov 26, 2017)

“The folk-pop fundamental texture of Caroline Ferrante’s newly released EP ‘Sky’ is turning heads within the indy music scene as a rhythmically- revolutionary sensation of intricate compositions.”

- ArtisTrack (Dec 05, 2017)

“By choosing such an eclectic blend of styles Caroline Ferrante delivers an incredible kaleidoscope of color with the powerful “SKY”.”

- Vince Rodman, Skope Magazine (Nov 20, 2017)

“The last track Symphony contains some of the most powerful and clever songwriting on SKY. The instrumentation is stripped down to subdued sounding drums, an array of piano chords, and Ferrante’s most visceral vocal riffs on the EP. As the piano chords change keys from downtrodden, to hopeful and back”

- Justin Lugo, ReviewFix.com (Dec 24, 2017)

“Caroline Ferrante Will Make Your Ears Smile”

- Keith Pro, Indie Band Guru (Dec 14, 2017)

““Singing, “You say I’m the Devil/You’re a Savior to me/The demons you wrestled /Stayed offa me,” Caroline’s voice sends shivers up your spine with an immaculate tone and emotive phrases.”

- Bryon William, Indie Spoonful (Nov 29, 2017)

“What Caroline Ferrante showcases throughout this four-track release is immense versatility and a uniquely inspired sense of creativity that strikes all at once as incredibly professional, deeply soulful, and forever unpredictable.”-

- Rebecca Cullin, Stereo Stickman (Nov 19, 2017)
