Artists

Esther Rose

Everything clicks on Safe to Run, the fourth album from singer, songwriter and perpetual searcher Esther Rose. It’s the quiet culmination of years spent fully immersed in a developing artistry, and presents Rose’s always vividly detailed emotional scenes with new levels of clarity and control. As with previous work, her songwriting transfigures the chaos and uncertainty of a life in progress, but here she sharpens the pop elements and attaches unshakably catchy hooks to even the darkest stretches of the journey.
 
After spending her formative years in Michigan, Rose relocated to New Orleans and got her start in music there while awash in the unparalleled energy of the city’s scene. Over the course of her first three records, an infatuation with traditional country gradually evolved into a more distinctive style and increasingly personal material. Rose’s music traced her changes as she moved through stages, studios, and home addresses, and she eventually left NOLA for New Mexico where the two year writing process for Safe to Run unfolded. Making the transition to this new environment after spending the better part of a decade building a life somewhere else demanded looking around and taking stock. All the heaviness, sweetness, levity, and self-discovery that had led up to that point began funneling into new songs that moved slower in order to dig deeper, taking on the intricate hues of a desert horizon as they came together.

Charlotte Rose Benjamin

"'With all the glossy, “woe unto me” pop clogging up Spotify, it’s such a wonderful thing to come across such a pure songwriting talent in the absolute classic sense. And young Charlotte Rose Benjamin does indeed pen tunes with a distinctly trad sensibility, yet with an emotional complexity that surely belies her age.' - Blackbook Magazine. Charlotte Rose Benjamin's Debut Album 'Dreamtina' comes out April 22nd"

Dylan Earl

People’s most interesting aspects often arise from their contradictions, the parts of us which would seem dissonant but in truth create the fantastic harmony of our personas. This is certainly the case with Dylan Earl. At first glance, he is the spitting image of your classic ramblin’ man - ripping doobies outside the truckstop, singing his sad songs in a different dive every night, riding off into every sunset and pissing in the wind. However, if you look a little closer, listen a little deeper, you might uncover more delicate and thoughtful selves - the philosopher, the poet, and the gooey hearted dreamer. This duality is highlighted in the lore of “I Saw The Arkansas,” the tale of a homesick road dog howling for the rolling hills of his natural habitat, yet dazzled by the siren call of the American touring circuit’s beautiful chaos.
