EMILY ROSE AND THE ROUNDERS - S/T
Emily Rose and the Rounders (formerly the Blue Rose Rounders) are a traditional country outfit from Los Angeles, California. After the dissolution of singer/songwriter Emily Rose Epstein’s old country band and on the tail end of her Saturn return and a near full on mental breakdown, she recruited a few old friends to play the songs she wrote to nurse her broken heart. Fans of sad songs, waltzes and a kicker or two, the Rounders serve country up in the tradition of George Jones, Patsy Cline and Waylon Jennings without looking too far into the past for inspiration. The Rounders songs touch on grief, regret, lost love, (all) female empowerment, nihilism, in hopes that even in the darkest of times we can dance and sing and find a way out.
