Over here in the UK, country music isn't really popular at all, That really is a shame. So, today, I'm going to introduce to you a very talented country singer-songwriter that goes by the name of Rose Falcon.
Rose mixes deep lyrical content, with lovely tones and catch melodies. To the point that even rock legend Jon Bon Jovi is a fan! Rose kindly took the time to answer a few questions so that you could get to know her better, so let's see what she had to say..
Hey Rose, thanks for taking the time to talk to us here at Popshade! Why don't you tell people a bit about who you are and what you do?
I am a singer/songwriter. I got my first record deal when I was 14, so it’s been a long journey and I feel so blessed to get to do what I love every day. Currently I have two EP’s out on i-tunes, the latest is called, “19th Avenue Volume 2” . I am about to release a new video for a song I wrote called “Like Crazy” and I cannot wait to share it. It has a really cool concept, which I won’t reveal, just yet, but you will be able to find it next month on www.RoseFalcon.com .You can catch me on the road this fall with Rodney Atkins and Frankie Ballard.
How would you describe your sound?
I would say that my music is organic country/pop. The production is really meant to highlight the lyrical content of the songs. My passion is writing and I use my voice as a tool to get my songs across as effectively as possible. If I had to describe my music in one word I would say it’s, “honest”.
We absolutely love "If Love Had A Heart", but what does the song mean to you?
“If Love had a Heart” is not about one relationship, but, rather, a series of unfortunate ones. When I wrote the song with Tommy Lee James, I was just at a place where I was tired of falling in and out of love. Heartache has fueled a lot of my songs over the years. Basically, the song is a letter to love, begging it to stop being so damn hard and I think maybe love listened this time ! lol.
You've already impressed rock superstar Jon Bon Jovi, so is there anyone else out there you'd love to be a fan?
Ya know, it’s funny, I recently have been writing with one of my all time favorite writers, Matraca Berg. I admired her for years and now I actually have the opportunity to get to know her.
It’s so cool when that happens. It’s kind of surreal. So, if you would have asked me that two months ago I would have said Matraca. Now I’m thinking, I’d like to write with Lucinda Williams. I don’t really think in terms of, “I want this person to be a fan”, I’m always thinking of my dream co-writers.
What can people expect when they listen to "19th Avenue (Volume 2)"?
They can expect to hear true stories of a girls life. If hope they will find comfort in my truth and be able to relate to my experiences in a way that makes them feel as if my songs are a friend in times when they feel alone or like no one “gets” what they are going through or when they are feeling overwhelmingly in love. I want people to hear my songs and say, “that’s me. that’s my story”.
Your songs have been recorded by some pretty big names (Lady Antebellum to name but one), is there anyone out there who you'd absolutely love to write for?
I have this obsession with getting a Tim McGraw cut.
What can we expect if we come down to one of your shows?
You can expect to hear stories and learn more about the songs. I admire artists who reveal more of themselves in their live performance. If the person on stage is perfect and does not communicate with the audience I feel like I should have just stayed home and listened to their cd. When I see a live performance I want to feel like I got to know more about the artist. I strive to reveal more of myself and communicate with the audience as if we are having a conversation. I want everyone to have a great time and to take a little vacation from their problems and enjoy some music !
And finally, where can your new fans find you?
I'd like to thank Rose for taking the time to answer these questions!
Rose really is one of the best upcoming talents in the music industry today. Sweet, talented, and someone who really cares about her music and the way it connects to her fans. She deserves a lot more attention, and I really do wish Rose the best of success.
