a sprinkling of new songs, but still the fine show we’ve come to expect from Rachel Ries, who returned to The Greystones last night in her new guise of Her Crooked Heart (complete with Sarah Smout on cello once again). Thanks to Rachel, Sarah, the Torn Sail two for a spellbinding opening set, and those who made it out to support live music on a warm Wednesday night.

It will be Wednesday once again when WagonWheel Presents… is back at The Greystones on May 24th. It’ll be a first visit to Sheffield for Canadian songstress Whitney Rose and her band, with support coming from A Prayer Away (new project from Jody Davies of The Fargo Railroad Co. & King Quentin). You can find a full preview for this show here. Maybe we’ll see you then?

On Wednesday May 24th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Whitney Rose and her band to The Greystones. Whitney Rose is a Canadian singer and songwriter who describes her sound as “vintage-pop-infused neo-traditional country.” She grew up on Prince Edward Island and was exposed to country music from a very young age: as a child she spent most of her time at her grandparents’ bar, where the jukebox constantly played hits by Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Patsy Cline, and Dolly Parton. Having now relocated to Austin, Texas, Whitney is touring Europe in support of her brand new record South Texas Suite. Support comes from A Prayer Away. Advance tickets priced at £10 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/384848 and the venue (12-6pm). Entry on the night will be £12. Doors open 7.45pm.

 

***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 Thirty Tigers-distributed Six Shooter Records.

South Texas Suite was released on January 27th 2017 and is being supported by a month long North American tour, and following that, over two months of performances in Europe, Scandinavia and the UK.

“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

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
