“Rose is capable of a kaleidoscope of emotion in the same song, injecting the tracks with a living, breathing reality and often singing like Emmy Lou Harris at her most brooding…shivers the soul” – AMERICANA UK
Eileen Rose is a unique blend of 70’s style troubadour, torch singer, rock chick, and honkytonk girl. She’s lived in Boston, London, Nashville and recently made the move to Freeport, Maine. She’s toured for decades, through the US and Europe, recorded with Alabama 3, released two records on Rough Trade, shared her self-penned songs, her spine-chilling voice, and a deep catalogue of classic covers from the some of the greatest songwriters of all time. This show features The Legendary Rich Gilbert – a jaw-dropping soloist on both electric guitar and pedal steel.
May 2023 sees the release of Eileen’s newest album, recorded in her beloved Italy. Eileen blended the Holy Wreck with some of the greatest, innovative musicians in Italy to produce a collection of songs that are startling in their uniqueness. The fun and joy of merging this cross-cultural group of players is evident in their beautiful and exciting interpretation of Eileen’s material. At the center of it all is Eileen’s unmistakable voice which has been called “a beguiling hybrid of Patti Smith and Marianne Faithful…Rose’s formidable array of assault weapons: a curling, insinuating voice at once coy and confessional.” – The Sunday Times
