More on Rose...
Rose released her self-titled debut on Nov. 3  and while it’s definitely rooted in those sepia-toned classic country songs, she has a way of giving it a fresh burst of Technicolor. Whether she’s singing about summer love (“Daisies in Our Eyes”), prison love letters (“Send You Away”) or the very real pangs of being an East Coast woman whose partner has gone west for work (“East Coast Woman Blues”), Rose evokes the very best of her influences, such as Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells or Emmylou Harris, while at the same time sounding completely fresh. - Jesse Kinos-Goodin (CBC music)
Rose has a strong voice with a retro feel, a la Patsy Cline, and she proves herself a promising songwriter too. Not since Lori Yates has the Queen West scene produced such an authentic country voice. - Kerry Doole (New Canadian Music)
“The reason I was drawn to Whitney was because she was playing real legitimate 1960′s era country music, because there is none of that around on the radio any more – there’s nobody that I know of that is making honest…what I call real country music. When I heard her songs, I heard what she was doing, I went hey – that’s real country music and I’m glad somebody’s interested in it.” Bazil Donovan (Blue Rodeo)
Since releasing her debut record to rave reviews in November 2012, Whitney Rose’s name has been slowly seeping throughout the country, winning over fans in every nook and cranny of Canada both east and west. Her next album is in the works and due out in 2015.
