“A SULTRY COUNTRY CLASSICIST WITH A TREMBLE IN HER VOICE, WHITNEY ROSE IS PARTIAL TO THE MAGISTERIAL GESTURES OF THE 1950S AND 1960S."
– NEW YORK TIMES
"THIS TEXAS-BASED SINGER'S 21ST-CENTURY UPDATE OF CLASSIC COUNTRY'S MOST CHERISHED IDEALS – BOOT-STOMPING RHYTHMS AND TAKE-NO-GUFF LYRICS – IS RICH WITH SLY WISDOM, ITS FULL-BODIED ARRANGEMENTS PUTTING THE SPOTLIGHT ON HER SWEETLY TART SOPRANO."
– ROLLING STONE
"ALL PERFORMANCES ON RULE 62 ARE DELIVERED WITH A CASUAL ASSURANCE THAT GIVES THE RECORD THE FEELING OF AN OLD FAVORITE; IT FEELS LIKE A RECORD THAT YOU'VE LIVED WITH FOR YEARS, IN THE BEST POSSIBLE SENSE."
"THIS IS HER SINGULAR VISION. AND WITH TWO TERRIFIC WORLDWIDE RELEASES TO HER NAME, SHE’S JUST GETTING STARTED."
– AMERICAN SONGWRITER
"METICULOUS IN EVERY RESPECT. ON RULE 62 SHE CHANNELS HER INNER BOBBIE GENTRY... IN SHORT, ROSE DOES NOT LIMIT HERSELF, OR WANT TO BE PIGEONHOLED. SHE'S DOING IT HER WAY."
– NO DEPRESSION
" ROSE HAS ACQUIRED A DEFT TALENT FOR PENNING TIMELESS MATERIAL... RULE 62 SUGGESTS SHE’S FIRMLY ETCHED HER IDENTITY IN A GENRE THAT BEGS FOR SINGULARITY SIMPLY TO STAND OUT"
"THIS IS PURE COUNTRY MUSIC, TEXAS-STYLE, MEANT FOR THE STATE’S DISTINCTIVE DANCE FLOORS, NIGHTCLUBS, DIVE BARS, AND OPEN-AIR VENUES."
"WHITNEY ROSE ELEVATES HERSELF BY WRITING AND SELECTING SONGS THAT DO WHAT ALL THE BEST CLASSIC COUNTRY ARTISTS DID: SAY SOMETHING IN A WAY THAT’S NEVER BEEN SAID BEFORE, GIVING PERSPECTIVE TO UNIVERSAL EMOTIONS AND MOMENTS, AND MAKING YOU FEEL SOMETHING DEEPER THAN SIMPLE NOSTALGIA."
– SAVING COUNTRY MUSIC
Lethbridge based Shaela Miller is fast becoming a senior stateswoman of Western Canadian Music Scene. Although steeped in tradition, Shaela’s sound is distinctly fresh and suggestive of contemporary influences like Lucinda Williams, Neko Case & Howe Gelb. Her affinity for the classic country greats of the yesteryear gives her an unparalleled disposition as an original ambassador of a new wave of country music. When asked to describe her music she replies simply: "Honky Tonk." But that’s certainly not all it is. Tear in your beer ballads, dance hall shuffles, and dark alt-country craft work are all part of the package. With a voice that will send shivers up your spine and a penchant for turning a phrase that will make you relish in its simple eloquence, Shaela’s musical force is unabated and unrivaled. Now in the latter throws of polishing her 2nd full length release (expected early 2018), look for Shaela to make a major career high water mark in the coming year.
The sweet, sad longing and play of words and phrases, delivered in a voice from days far gone; holding the plaintive echoes of the struggles of women who bore the weight of abject sorrow and hardships, reaching through the ages and channeled through this figure of a girl. Amy Nelson's songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
