Old Soul. The term defines someone who possesses wisdom and knowledge deeper than her years. At first glance Anna Rose would not appear to be an old soul. With her youth and her pop-flavored upbringing (Her father is Oscar-winning Disney composer Alan Menken) she should be singing disposable, auto-tuned sugar pop. But with her powerful voice and timeless rock and roll songs, she defies expectations.
Behold A Pale Horse is full of 70s-inspired rock and roll tunes that run from straight ahead blues rockers to haunting piano ballads. Her versatility has never been clearer, and Behold A Pale Horse recalls everything from Little Feat to Tori Amos. Produced by Kevin Salem (Rachel Yamagata, Lenka), it follows Rose’s 2010 debut Nomad.
With recent features from Deli Magazine, Bust Magazine, Huffington Post, Diffuser FM, and more, Anna Rose is an artist on the rise. Time Out New York calls her “a splendid songstress who offers gusty, bluesy rock,” and Magnet Magazine praises her “haunting vocals” and “distinct 70s vibe.” Like artists of that era, Anna Rose knows showmanship. Experience the power of her live show this July and August, including dates with Howie Day.
The new video from the powerhouse album’s second single “Beautiful World” is out now. Check it out on Blastro here. This follows the enchanting video for title track “Behold A Pale Horse” which premiered exclusively via Nylon Magazine.
