EILEEN ROSE ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD - SPRING TOUR 2020
'EILEEN ROSE – MUSCLE SHOALS'
2019 brought a creative avalanche and a rare opportunity for acclaimed singer-songwriter-musician Eileen Rose. Writing two novels and recording a double album is a hearty year, by anyone's standard. But the chance to make that album at the historic Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama, was something truly extraordinary.
The result, 'Eileen Rose - Muscle Shoals,' is slated for an April 2020 release. Produced by Rose herself, it is destined to be a hands-down favorite for long term fans and the surprise of the year for those yet to discover Rose's extraordinary songcraft and astonishing voice.
Rose’s breakthrough album, 2000's Shine Like It Does, recorded with country-techno renegades Alabama 3 (responsible for the theme tune to The Sopranos) and co-produced with Jerry Boise (The Beatles, Buena Vista Social Club) was released on seminal label, Rough Trade Records. The newly minted solo artist had the music press reaching for the superlatives. And so it’s been for every Rose album to follow.
These include Rose stand-outs Be Many Gone (2015), Luna Turista (2010), At Our Tables (2008), Come The Storm (2005) which Judy Collins personally offered to release in the US after seeing Rose on stage in Glasgow, and Long Shot Novena (2002), which features members of Del Amitri, legendary British punk band The Ruts and sometime Sex Pistol Glen Matlock.
'Eileen Rose - Muscle Shoals,' may be her most accomplished record to date. It includes an "A-side" of new songs that shimmer with the brilliance and confidence of a seasoned songwriter and performer at the top of her game. There is also a bonus "B-side" of Rose's most beloved tracks, re-recorded in those extraordinary surroundings because Eileen “fell in love with the sound of this band in that room, and I just had to."
Established in 1969 by legendary Fame Studio session musicians, The Swampers, the iconic studio helped make Muscle Shoals the "Hit Recording Capital of the World." Though still a working studio, MSSS is so crucial to music history that it’s also a museum. Thousands of music fans the world over come to tour this former casket factory where icons like The Rolling Stones, Linda Rondstadt, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Willie Nelson, The Staple Singers, Rod Stewart, Leon Russell, Bob Seger, The Allman Brothers recorded some of their most beloved songs.
A natural fit for Eileen who "has absorbed and oozed so many musical influences throughout her career, that the term 'Americana' could have almost been created for her." (Three Chords and The Truth)
"The studio is primarily a museum now run by a foundation. We had to apply to record there," Eileen says, "They've done an incredible job of preserving the place—it’s downright humbling. The instruments used on records like Brown Sugar, Wild Horses, Kodachrome...right there for us to play. I’m in a chair in the control room leaning over the desk, and on the wall is a photo of Mick Jagger in the same spot, recording Wild Horses and Brown Sugar. I used Linda Ronstadt’s headphones in the same vocal booth right next to a photo of her in the same pot. Blew my mind. And the sound of that room is an instrument in itself. Easy to understand why it became a creative destination for so many great artists.”
"This band" is, of course, The Holy Wreck, an extraordinary group of Nashville veterans including guitar master Rich Gilbert (Frank Black, Jack White) on guitar and pedal steel, Chris Machlalan (Human Sexual Response, Haley Thompson King) on bass, and Steve Latanation (Agent Orange, The Legendary Shack Shakers) on drums.
Catch Eileen Rose & The Holy Wreck in Spring 2020 on their 'Eileen Rose - Muscle Shoals' tour of Europe with stops in England, Scotland, Ireland, The Netherlands, and more.
It's about time I headed back to Europe, wouldn't you say? Rich Gilbert, Scott Icenogle, Todd Jewell and I will be flitting around The Netherlands, Switzerland and Italy the last two weeks in May. We'll be playing a mix of Eileen Rose & The Holy Wreck shows and a few Silver Threads tradition country shows too. And, excited to say, hot off the presses, we'll be performing, for the first time ever, brand new songs from the Natasha The Party Crasher audio book! This record is a lot of fun--for kids AND adults. We'll be selling it on the road but it won't be available for general sale or download until June.

June 2014 Hey folks! The last couple weeks saw the release of 'Be Many Gone' throughout the whole of Europe! Pretty proud of that. We're busy putting together European tour details for September. We'll be The Netherlands and Germany for certain - not sure where else yet - but I'll be posting those dates in a week or so. The record is gathering lots of GREAT reviews in The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. I'll post them over on the press page, if you want to have a look. In the meantime, I want to say thank you to HomeDefence UK for this reflective piece on my career, with particular focus on Long Shot Novena. Great writing and I appreciate being the subject. More tour details and reviews about to posted. Thanks for stopping by, friends!
May 2014 Happy Spring. It's certainly been a gorgeous one here in Nashville. I continue to be pleased and humbled by the great reaction the 'Be Many Gone is getting. Thank you all so much. And guess what? I'm excited to say, you'll be seeing me, LRG and ole Nicky Boy in Europe this September. We'll be playing songs from 'Be Many Gone', of course, and a handful of new ones I'm working on. (Isn't that just like me? Why can't I stick to the plot?)I've posted some newTOUR DATESin The Netherlands and Germany (more details and dates coming soon). We'll be in a couple other countries too. I've got a couple UK shows on hold but, unless a few more can be worked into the schedule, I may have to skip old Blighty this time around. Sorry folks, you know I love you and it's my second home, but touring is expensive business. Hit me up The Silver Threads, we've just recorded a TWO record set, Nashville I and Nashville II. I'll be putting those in the store very soon! Take care, friends, and stay in touch! I love to hear from you!
April 2014 Hey, I'm in REUTERS! An interview feature piece going out all over world. Thanks REUTERS! And thanks to photographer Sam Donato for the nice photo.
EILEEN ROSE - BE MANY GONE With a long and illustrious musical pedigree, the Americana-influenced Be Many Gone ranks among Eileen-Rose Giadone's best work. The Boston-born singer, who moved to the UK from America in 1991, was involved with short-lived bands Daisy Chain and Fledgling before branching out on her own, where she came to the attention of Geoff Travis, then owner of Rough Trade Records, resulting in her first two solo albums being released on his label to critical acclaim. Having returned to the US in 2003, she relocated to Nashville and continued to turn out strong albums, with songs incorporating blues, folk and country influences. Opening track Queen Of The Fake Smile is an absolute belter while Space You Needed is touching and beautifully sung. Rose proves throughout these nine tracks that she has quite a way with lyrics, with most of the songs about matters of the heart. (- Kim Mayo)
