Out now via Cameron House Records, Heartbreaker Of The Year, is the new record from Whitney Rose. Supporting the album, the Prince Edward Island artist has been hitting the road for the last two months to the west coast and back including a recent run with The Mavericks in southern Ontario. She performed at Cavendish Beach Music Festival in July.
Heartbreaker Of The Year was produced by Raul Malo (Mavericks), who was so impressed by Rose that he decided to sing and play on the album. “I love this record,” says Malo. “I’m honoured to have played a part in the making of it. The songs are so strong no one could ruin them…not even me.”
Recorded in four days at Revolution Studios in Toronto the album also features Jay Weaver (Mavericks, Dolly Parton) on bass, Nichol Robertson (Devin Cuddy Band) on guitars, Jerry Dale McFadden (Mavericks) on keys, Paul Deakin (Mavericks) on drums, Burke Carroll on pedal steel, and Drew Jurecka on strings. Learning the songs on the spot, the band came through with a spontaneous recording that brings Rose’s vocals and lyrical content to the spotlight. Heartbreaker Of The Year was mixed at Capitol Records by Niko Bolas, mastered by: Rob Vosgien and engineered by Guillermo Subauste.
