Gramercy Theater - Mon Sept 21
Rockwood - Sept 29 (release day for her self-titled EP.)
Always, she has known she would perform and record as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist-pianist who would release an album such as Nomad, her upcoming debut, which she co-produced with William (Billy) Sullivan, five songs from which comprise her sensational current Anna Rose EP. And always she has been a little nuts about guitars. She started playing at age 5, after an older cousin brought one along to a holiday family gift exchange.
On Anna Rose, songs like the guitar-rich '"Picture" and the atmospheric ballad "Wilshire Blvd." proceed with an elegant ruggedness that comes from Anna Rose's life-long attraction to rock and roll from the halcyon days of '60s and '70s southern California, and she sings them with an effortless-sounding soprano gravity. "I love that Mulholland Drive, rock-songwriter, star-tripped, holed-up-in-a-house-drinking-gin-and-smoking-weed-writing-songs thing," she says. "I think that's why I moved to California when I was 18, and the place will always be that to me, even though it wasn't that for me. I remember driving up on Mulholland Drive, for example, one night after I'd played one of my gigs in L.A. I was with Billy Sullivan, my co-producer on 'Nomad'. It was like I had found a place in the music world."
