Rising country/Americana artist hits the road again in support of critically acclaimed new album Rule 62, out now on Six Shooter through Thirty Tigers
“Show the highway no mercy, just get me where I’m going” —“Wake Me in Wyoming,” Rule 62
“Rich with sly wisdom.” —Rolling Stone
“Rose has acquired a deft talent for penning timeless material.” —Paste
“Whitney Rose’s voice sounds like it’s comin’ on out of a time machine in RCA’s Studio B in Nashville circa 1960.” —Magnet
Whitney Rose has hit her stride. The Austin-based songwriter has had a banner year, releasing two excellent, distinct, thematic collections that have expanded her sound and amplified her profile worldwide.
Rule 62, the most recent album, is a bold, brass-accented coming-to-terms with the people and challenges that threaten to derail life’s best-laid plans. The album has been met with great respect for Rose’s sharp songwriting style and liberating message (“Don’t take yourself too damn seriously”) as much as for the smooth studio work of the Mavericks’ Raul Malo and a collective of venerable guest musicians. And don’t forget South Texas Suite, the EP released in early 2017, a concise and homage to classic Texas tradition through Rose’s appreciative eyes. Between releases, she’s toured the tires off the van and solidified her reputation as a determined and dynamic artist on the stage as well.
A recent nomination for Honky Tonk Female of the Year by the Ameripolitan Music Awards confirms Rose is hitting the right notes in the Americana and Country worlds. Rule 62 is also breaking new ground, with coverage from The Fader, Paste and Rolling Stone. The album has already appeared on AllMusic’s Best of 2017 list.
