ROCK AND ROLL POWERHOUSE
ANNA ROSERELEASES NEW SINGLE
“The song is fueled by Rose’s serene voice, a simple guitar, and soothing percussion. Though it began as heavy rock, the musician and cowriters Jordan Lawhead and Adam B. Smith decided to strip it down, giving the song an almost purely acoustic soundscape; it acts as the calm after the storm.”
STRAYS IN THE CUT COMING 2016
At first glance, one wouldn’t guess that Anna Rose, the adorably petite blonde with the sugary name, is a fearless, unabashed, mind-blowingly talented Rock and Roll powerhouse. But, Rose, in fact, is walking, singing proof that big things most definitely come in small packages. It’s no wonder that Pancakes and Whiskey declares her a “complete badass.”
Rose is gearing up for the release of her new EP, Strays In The Cut, a collection of six mesmerizing tracks that find the singer/songwriter pushing her musical boundaries. “I am very much an album artist and a storyteller, so the idea of scaling it all back to the size of an EP was a challenge in itself. It forced me to look at the songs in a different way, the production, everything. These six songs needed to tell the whole story. The limitations I placed on the length made the process so much more imaginative in every other aspect.” shares Rose.
Strays in the Cut is the much-anticipated follow-up to Rose’s Beyond a Pale Horse, which Flashwounds declared a “deep swirl of Blues and Rock and Roll” that “beautifully represents the many dark and beautiful corridors of the human heart.” Beyond a Pale Horse introduced us to Rose’s dynamic voice and effortless command of the guitar; each song highlighted by attitude and pure grit. Undoubtedly, Beyond the Pale Horsecemented Rose as a veritable force, with hard-driving Rock and dirty Blues coursing through her veins.
In 2012, Rose also gained attention for her sultry take on Arcade Fire’s “My Body is a Cage,” which is currently available for download on iTunes.Cover Me Songs premiered the track, affirming, “The sparse cover showcases her effortlessly soulful singing.” Since then, Rose has shared the stage with a variety of notable artists, including: Crystal Bowersox, Howie Day, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton and founding member of Live, Ed Kowalczyk. The consummate artist, Rose lets her spirit shine through with every performance, while captivated fans hang on every note.
Rose is set to play the Brooklyn Bowl on January 27, 2016 with more dates to be announced soon.
“Anna Rose is a singer-songwriter who balances the grit and attitude of pure American rock ‘n’ roll with gorgeously constructed songs and a softer emotional center.”
“Anna Rose is something of a rare breed. A singer-songwriter with an ear to 90s pop-rock and a penchant for big hooks, her sound is straightforward, even earnest, with a focus on performance over production.”

“Anna Rose’s vocal talents far exceed anything I could describe. Her charisma makes her even more exciting to watch. Her bluesy croon brings me back to the days of Heart and Janis Joplin. She perfectly melds rock ‘n’ roll with classic blues. This girl is a complete badass.”
