Whitney Rose
 
 

The past two years have been massive for Whitney Rose, who is rapidly becoming an international sensation. The vintage country pop specialist’s sophomore offering, 'Heartbreaker of the Year', converted critics’ double takes into palpable buzz with its beguiling blend of then and now.

Her 2015 release 'Heartbreaker of the Year' was produced by The Mavericks’ Raul Malo, who also performs on multiple tracks. Rose’s vocals convey both vulnerability and sharpness – a contrast that permeates her music as a whole – to enthralling results.

The album’s success has impelled those in the know to include Rose’s name in any conversation about the future faces of Americana and Country music.

“Whitney Rose has been lighting up the touring venues ever since her breakout album, 'Heartbreaker of the Year', and standout performance at last year's AMA. She's been praised everywhere from ND to The New York Times. And like any serious heartbreaker, she's got a killer band”
- No Depression


 

Before moving to Austin, Whitney Rose had never danced the two-step. Now, the country-pop singer’s infatuation with Texas’ rich musical culture, from stage to studio to dance floor, informs an enthralling new project, a love letter to the Lone Star State. Her new EP, 'South Texas Suite', is a touch nostalgic, deeply romantic and defiantly personal — it’s Texas, through Whitney Rose’s eyes and ears.

'South Texas Suite' is a meticulous study of sound and place, but also a product of unexpected circumstance. Last October, shortly after the release of her album 'Heartbreaker of the Year', Rose packed up her boot collection and headed south to play a two-month residency at Austin’s famed Americana bastion, the Continental Club. But that November-December engagement went so well, she wound up staying. Since then, she’s toured extensively throughout North America, made her European debut and signed with ThirtyTigers-distributed Six Shooter Records.
