Whitney Rose (from the album Rosie available on MCG Recordings) (by Danny McCloskey)
Quietly strummed Country chords are the beginning footsteps when Canadian-born, Austin, Texas-based songstress Whitney Rose asks “Tell Me a Story, Babe” as she steps into Rosie, her recent release. Beginning her album release cycle in 2012, Whitney Rose has built a reputation in a cluttered camp of Country-loving, Rock’n’Roll raised musicians clutching on to Americana. Rosie continues to hear Whitney Rose dancing with the sound that brought her to the party as she stretches both her own artistry and what the music can provide. A soft cloud of sawdust is raised when “Minding My Own Pain” spins its troubles with a Classic Country nod while jangly guitar notes and electric chord slashes introduce “Barb Wire Blossom”. Whitney Rose puts her tail between her legs for “I Need a Little Shame” as she advises “You’re Gonna Get Lonely”.
Tough choices are always in arms-reach for album releases, and Whitney Rose discovered a pandemic between her and her career was just one of her hurdles. For Rosie, things have change for Whitney, putting those changes into a song for “Memphis in My Mind” as she shares that ‘I am not excitedly checking my various tour schedules to see what cities are being added to support the record. Release day will find me at home resting, and this is where I'll be indefinitely - or until Doc gives me the okay to work again. After ignoring my body while in constant pain for a number of months, I was hospitalized in December 2022. I'm still in recovery but am focusing solely on getting better, and it seems to be paying off thus far. Right now, I know two things for certain: I am proud of these songs, and I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Hell, who does? I’m not one for sittin' on records for the perfect moment or perfect label. Never have been, never will be, for better or worse. There's no such thing as a perfect time’. Her decisions give the world Rosie, once again reminding the world that Whitney Rose has a voice marinated in Country AM Gold circa 1950/60. Her songs the familiar sound of neon jukeboxes and faraway melodies found in the distant echoes of radio dials. She puts herself into the smiles brought by a tiny car speakers and family singalongs with “Can’t Remember Happiness” as a dreamy reverie closes the audio door for Rosie when Whitney Rose exits the album with “Mermaid in a Pantsuit”.
