Anna Rose

Anna Rose is rock n' roll. Raw and unfiltered only begins to describe the petite-blonde’s persona; so don't let her looks fool you. After her sophomore album Behold a Pale Horse, Rose has evolved deeper with her upcoming release, Strays In The Cut.

Rose sums Strays In The Cut into one crisp breath - bravery. Stripped of its fat and fluff, tracks like “Bury Me Deep” coarse through your veins with depth and rock energy. Rose is unconcerned with conformity and hones in on feeling. It is equally a reflection for Rose as it is for the heart of each listener: Bury me shallow where the rain can touch / keep the knife dull ‘cause I feel too much of everything. “I wrote this song at a time where I very often felt misunderstood,” where spurts of emotion get lost in the chaos of life and the vast music industry,” said Rose. “Bury Me Deep” attests to that focus heard in its hazy guitar riffs, defined pulse and electricity. Attitude crosses honest writing and pierces your skin: Bury me deeper where the sun don't reach / breaking my heart just so you can see the rest of me.

The six-track EP is a defiant revolution that pushes both personal and musical boundaries for Anna Rose. “I am very much an album artist and a storyteller,” said Rose. Sentiment and conviction fountain from Strays In The Cut while embracing electronic elements like omnichord, edgy guitar and Rose’s powerhouse vocals. “I gave myself more freedom to push my ability as a writer and artist” said Rose, all of which underline the EP’s transparency from the studio to the stage.

“Start A War” is equally mesmerizing. The intro conjures a calming effect, soothing the ear in the wake of its storm. Rose’s voice is healing. Her tone lures listeners into the heart and soul of Strays In The Cut. “Start A War” becomes a melting-pot of life, death and sorrow that blooms at each chorus and snare rolls propel the band into a distant forum of release.

By the age of five Anna had already taken up piano, guitar and dance. “My house was a rock n' roll house,” said Rose. The lineage of rock music is potent, filled with innovation, rebellion and respect, which Anna Rose fully embraces. Her roots travel deep to the birth of rock and blues, or as Rose calls it, “soul-food.” Artists like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin have been at the core of Rose’s upbringing; “Oh my god, Led Zeppelin,” Anna repeated. Rose’s musical palette extends to innovators such as Muddy Waters and Tom Waits to Placebo, Nirvana and Soundgarden.
