Album Notes
The basic tracks for "Rose" were recorded December 1-4, 2011 at a cabin just outside of Flagstaff, AZ. Blaine and 4 other people (friends) spent the weekend laying tracks, finishing songs, and doing rewrites while it snowed outside the cabin. Don Bosse produced this album and also is the multi-instrumentalist genius. Alan Sangma, videographer and friend, created a short "making of" film about the album. Brad Dilli, harmonica player, and his wife Melanie Ryan (weekend cook and life coach) also contributed. All the songs were recorded live with a Macbook Pro and two microphones onto two tracks to catch the vibe and the honesty of the songs. Minimal overdubs and tracking were done at the cabin. Blaine's vocals and guitars were recorded live on that weekend along with overdubs of harmonica, drums, whistles & hoots, and the background noise of snow plows. Don took the tracks back to Maryland and added the rest of the instruments that you hear (which is quite a bit). Blaine Long and Don Bosse are long time friends and have worked on other projects together in the past. They have not worked together in over 10 years. This current project was worth the wait.

"Rose" is a reflection of Blaine Long's life right now - making his living off of playing original music. "Bring it Back Again" describes the daily grind and pitfalls of a being a solo, original artist. "Rose for Stars" and "Jerusalem Goodnight" talk about the struggles and rituals of being a new father to a 4 year old who doesn't like it when you leave every night to go to work. The name of the album is his daughter's middle name. And with the surprising, personal political song, "Paper Hearts", Blaine Long's new album, "Rose" is full of songs that mean a lot to him and hopefully will mean something to you.
