Rule 62, which has its origins in an excerpt from Alcoholics Anonymous’ Tradition Four—“Don’t Take Yourself Too Damn Seriously,” is the title of Whitney Rose’s album of the same name.
Just after releasing South Texas Suite, a tribute to Austin, Texas, Whitney Rose headed to Nashville, where she began recording at BlackBird Studio A with The Mavericks’ Raul Malo and co-producer Niko Bolas.
Musicians on the recording include Raul Malo, Paul Deakin (The Mavericks) on drums, Jay Weaver (Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, The Mavericks) on bass; Jen Gunderman (Sheryl Crow) on piano; Chris Scruggs (Marty Stuart) on steel; Aaron Till (Asleep at the Wheel) on the fiddle; and Kenny Vaughn (Marty Stuart, Lucinda Williams) on lead guitar.
“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
At present PEI’s Whitney Rose is on tour to Norway, Sweden, UK, US and across Canada promoting this latest release. Not sure when we’ll see her next on the Island. Soon we hope.
