To my European friends and, even worse, all of you suffering from the East Coast cold; I feel your pain (and hope you’re all safe). Winter has gotten me feeling chilly, slightly unmotivated and in need of a cuddle bae. To help you get through these rainy days, I present you the soul diva of our times; Baby Rose. Also, Jasmine Rose.
Once you play her two-piece EP From Dusk Till Dawn (Side A and B) you only really need thirty seconds to be convinced that the Atlanta singer/songwriter Baby Rose is very precious. Her sound takes me back to a time when Leela James’ Music was on the air continuously. The warmth, the deep vibrations, the emotion – her voice is exactly what this industry is missing, IMHO. The two EPs are a collection of smooth candlelight joints that give some much-needed warmth during this winter bluesy season.
