Rosie Carney ~ Bare

“Coming from a musician who so effectively articulates alienation and thwarted desire, it’s no surprise that “Winter” paints a delicate, bleakly beautiful picture of seasonal isolation.” – NPR
“Exquisite” – The Independent
“…one of my favourite voices of the past few years, both in her tone and the personality and character that she instills in her delicately composed tracks” – Crack in the Road


If we follow the narrative of Rosie Carney as expressed through her songwriting, 2017’s ‘Awake Me’ was about the undefeated kernel of hope inside us all that gets us through each day. It was a public acknowledgement of the mental health struggles (See VISUS mini documentary here) that engulfed her late teen years and her harrowing rise and fall in the major label system. Today, her new single ‘Bare’ conveys a sense of solitude, but, as Rosie points out, solitude is a tender and creative muse, allowing us the reflection needed to be our best selves, let go of the past.
She says of the song: “Bare was one of those songs that took me about 20 minutes to write. It felt like the song was already written, and all I had to do was play it aloud. It stems from the feelings of solitude and isolation you experience after going through something negatively impacting. I tried to write the song in stages of that experience, the first verse being the most raw and vulnerable, and the last, letting go. I don’t necessarily think solitude is a negative thing, but actually very positive. It allows us to get to know ourselves better within each situation. I tried to capture that strength in this song.”
Produced in Ireland with her frequent collaborator Orri McBrearty, ‘Bare’ looks to build on highly acclaimed singles ‘Winter’, ‘Your Moon’ and ‘Awake Me’. These few tracks have racked up over eight million streams on Spotify and received acclaim from NPR, The Line of Best Fit, The Independent and Crack in the Road. The praise lead to 2017 performances at Latitude, Seven Layers and the Bon Iver, National and Cillian Murphy curated Sounds From a Safe Harbour. This spring she embarks on her biggest run of shows yet supporting Haux in 11 countries across Europe and North America. Rosie recently signed a deal with London-based Akira Records (Phoria, Henry Jamison, Henry Green) and is currently working on her debut album.
Having spent half her life in the music industry already, Rosie Carney packs an extraordinary sense of lived experience into her music. At 13 she left school in Donegal, Ireland to showcase her work in New York and Los Angeles, getting signed to a major before she could legally drive. Her later teen years were spent largely grappling with her own health, trying to navigate the confusion of her ailing mental health in the wake of trauma while simultaneously having to assert herself creatively in a large commercial system. Throughout her youthful evolution, the one constant has been her songwriting, which is both cathartic and empowering, “Songs that feel lived-in and worn, conveying a bruised ache well beyond her years.” – NPR
Rosie’s is a deeply human story, one that is crucial at this point in time, as she and artists like her, continue to let us know that we are not alone, and that ultimately things can and do get better.
