Rewind to January 2017. Whitney Rose was primed to release her first recording of the year, South Texas Suite, a countrypolitan valentine to her hometown of Austin, Texas. Days before the EP hit the streets and Rose kicked off a four-month worldwide tour, the burgeoning songwriting force packed her boots for Nashville, where she entered BlackBird Studio Ato reconvene with the Mavericks’ Raul Malo. In one short week, Rose, Malo and co-producer Niko Bolas crafted her acclaimed latest effort, Rule 62.
"A sultry country classicist with a tremble in her voice, Whitney Rose is partial to the magisterial gestures of the 1950s and 1960s."
Rose, a unique and inimitable writer and performer has been highly lauded for her work. She and her seasoned band have performed nearly four hundred shows in the past two years gaining international notoriety. The above quote by the New York Times is a perfect and spot-on example of this acclaim. She's used to hot climates now she's been living in Texas for a while so touring around Europe this forthcoming month and August is just perfect.
Although coming to Hull may be something of a shock both weather-wise and culturally, I'm sure we are going to make her feel welcome.
This is going to be a night to remember as not only is Whitney going to be performing with her band, there will also be a chance to celebrate women in music from a local perspective as support comes from Leeds-based Emilia Quinn and the even more local and brilliant Emma Fee.
