Haroula Rose is originally from Chicago and currently based in LA. Her debut album These Open Roads, a realized collection of soft, gently picked acoustic and upbeat Americana numbers was released in 2011. The album was recorded by Andy LeMaster at Chase Park Transduction (Now It's Overhead, Bright Eyes) and also featured Orenda Fink of Azure Ray on guest vocals.
Rose is currently finishing an EP and that will be released in early spring with a second LP coming late 2012. The upcoming albums are being recorded in Athens and Atlanta, GA with Jim White producing.
Remix mastermind Luke Top, who is the lead singer and bassist in Fool's Gold, also a member of Papercuts, and Foreign Born, recently remixed a track from the album, "Close My Eyes To See," which turns the poignant acoustic song into a dark and mysterious beat-heavy jam with handclaps and synth. Download that song at the link below.
Haroula Rose's full-length includes a cover of Mason Jenning's song Duluth.
