Whitney Rose http://www.whitneyrosemusic.com

“Even the chief architect, standing in the ruins of her dream, could laugh at herself — and that is the very acme of humility.” —Tradition Four, AA

There are many useful rules to live by, but for Whitney Rose, there’s one that stands alone as a guiding principle for life as she knows it: Rule 62. The origin of the rule is best summed up by the poignant, pronoun-adjusted excerpt from Alcoholics Anonymous’ Tradition Four cited above, a treatise on how to find harmony between ambition and self-awareness, and how to learn one’s lessons with humor and humility. This truism, officially worded as “Don’t Take Yourself Too Damn Seriously,” is the origin of both the title and ethos of Whitney Rose’s album, Rule 62.

Rewind to January 2017. Rose was primed to release South Texas Suite, a countrypolitan valentine to Austin, Texas. (Rolling Stone noted that it “bristles with local flavor.”) Days before the EP hit the streets and Rose kicked off a four-month worldwide tour, the burgeoning songwriting force (and “country hair” disciple) packed her boots for Nashville, where she entered BlackBird Studio A to reconvene with the Mavericks’ Raul Malo. In one short week, Rose, Malo and co-producer Niko Bolas channeled the tumult, turbulence and tension outside of the studio into Rose’s sophomore worldwide release, which includes nine self-penned songs. Playful yet uncompromising, Whitney Rose reminds us of popular music’s rich history of strong female voices and perspectives, and on Rule 62, she channels her inner Nancy Sinatra, Bobbie Gentry and Françoise Hardy. Rule 62 finds Rose “breaking up with patriarchy,” a breakup evidenced by new songs that show verve, swagger and self-assurance in Rose’s instinctive sense of tone, broadened scope and attention to detail.

 

"A sultry country classicist with a tremble in her voice, Whitney Rose is partial to the magisterial gestures of the 1950s and 1960s." – New York Times
"Playfully croons through tales of love and mischief with girlish breath and devilish twang." – Rolling Stone
"Rose nailed this concoction of joining the purer sides of pop and country. The most exciting part is seeing where she goes next." – American Songwriter
"Whitney Rose’s voice sounds like it's comin' on out of a time machine in RCA’s Studio B in Nashville circa 1960. Her songwriting blends vintage R&B and retro country." — Magnet
- “Following in the tradition of Patti Griffith, Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely, and others who use place as an essential element of their music. That place could be East Texas, West Texas, Houston, or Dallas—it’s a big state that contains multitudes—but one that is quintessentially Texas.” – PopMatters
- “The sound the young singer-songwriter has crafted for herself is entirely Texan twang.” – Rolling Stone
- “Images of bluebonnets, boots, bands, and old records fill the songs, every one conjuring a distinct Texas tradition.” – All Music
- “This sounds like vintage Texas music, and Rose serves it up with élan.” – Texas Music Magazine
- “Ready-made for packing a Central Texas dance hall.” – Austin Chronicle  
"Sultry, dynamic, spicy in the way it slides between styles yet continues forward cohesively, Heartbreaker of the Year is quite the exhibition of Whitney’s talents." – Saving Country Music
"Stark and sultry, here Rose hits heartache right between the eyes. With a croon that wraps dances perfectly between plaintive guitar riffs, Rose skillfully delivers classic country magic." — Guitar World
"Her writing is first rate, and she is really fucking good at her instrument." — PopMatters
