Rose signs with Six Shooter
Thursday, January 14, 2016
– Traditional country singer Whitney Rose signed a deal with Six Shooter Records, she announced today.
Rose released "Heartbreaker of the Year" last year to much praise. Raul Malo of The Mavericks produced the disc and sang duets with Rose as well. She was discovered five years ago by Blue Rodeo's Bob Egan at a party where she sang a few songs a capella.
Rose plays Austin's Continental Club every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with her ongoing artist residency. A debut gig in Los Angeles is confirmed for Thursday, February 18 at Hotel Café.
The label, which is based in Toronto and Nashville, is also home to Sam Outlaw, whose CD also was given much praise.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man
Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
