Caroline Romano is a Nashville-based alt-pop singer songwriter.  

At just 22-years-old, the Nashville-based singer and songwriter has repeatedly demonstrated her ability to create anthems that capture the highs and lows of young adulthood. She memorializes her messy, relatable emotions into buoyant, unflinchingly honest songs.

In 2022, Caroline shared her debut album, Oddities and Prodigies, to widespread support from tastemakers like EARMILK and Sweety High. She has continued to come into her own with her more mature and intentional alt-leaning sound which she showcased on her 2023 EP, ‘A Brief Epic.’ With millions of streams already, and more music on the way, Caroline Romano is an artist whose star will only continue to rise.

“girl in a china shop” is an emotional rollercoaster of a song. Caroline juxtaposes the song’s explosive, untempered chorus with stripped-back, reflective verses. It’s a delicate balancing act that only an artist as meticulous as Caroline can pull off.

I often feel like I break everything I touch. I’ve come to view myself as one major juxtaposition,” says Caroline. “One thing I’ve learned is that as life moves on, things get broken in the process. Whether it’s relationships, or my own heart, I’ve come to realize that it’s all too easy to shatter either one by my own hand. At times it’s left me feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and with my own footing. ‘girl in a china shop is my attempt at acknowledging that, in a way that summarizes the chaotic feeling that is navigating myself and other’s emotions.”
