“I’m not that naughty, but I’ve got a dirty smile”
In a era of sub-categorized music genres, The Blue Rose Band takes the stand with a "Just Rock" attitude. Their main drive is what feels right, how it moves your soul and the energy they share with the audience. Bringing out the passion in their music to the the stage and cd.
The Blue Rose Band emerged in 2006, when longtime friends Jimmy Ros...e and Trevor Hammer were inspired by the talents of the sassy and sexy vocalist Amanda Peachey. In 2008, bassist Mark Blades brought his gritty yet refined barrage on the rhythm section to complete the lineup of this Arizona based band. The Blue Rose Band has an original, "Just Rock" sound to compliment an energetic live show that will keep you moving and always wanting more.
The Blue Rose Band's debut album “Home” was released in the late summer of 2008. “Home” was engineered and produced by four time Grammy nominee, Ralph Patlan. This album has a guitar driven edge accompanied by soulful lyrics and vocals that create a vintage "Just Rock" sound with a modern day twist. “Home” is “a unique blues and rock album with a classic feel,” says KWSS 106.7FM’s Rob Fowler. “Home” is currently distributed worldwide through Itunes, CD Baby and Zia Records.
"Sometimes I come across a band that throws a wrench in my master plan to be a constant Ahole. That band is The Blue Rose Band. I have seen show after show and have continued to enjoy solid performances. So when I got a hold of their album HOME I was hoping to find a flaw and engage in my usual juvenile rant...no such luck. Dammit!
The album journies through bar room boogies, power ballads and southern rock infused pop. It has a well produced tone and exudes a brilliance in it's simplicity. The Blue Rose Band has a formula on this album and it works...
1 part soul diva vocals mixed liberally with scorching (but not overpowering) guitar. Combine the solid rhythm of the drums with the gritty tone of the impeccable bass lines and it's near impossible to keep yourself from repeatedly listening to this album and finding new treats in each listen.
Go listen for yourself, as for me...I'm off to find a band I can talk shit about.
Simple in it's appearance but deep in it's soul!"
