Alexa Rose

Memphis bases Alexa Rose is set to release her debut LP, Medicine For Living, on 10/4 via the fine folks at Big Legal Mess. In a nutshell, this is gorgeous twang. Alexa Rose has a lovely voice. Here’s some more info from the PR team.

The track, which informs the title of her debut album, is a slice of contemporary roots music in the vein of Gillian Welch, imbued with the Appalachian storytelling sensibilities of her ancestral home in the Alleghany Highlands in western Virginia Rose brings her poignant, soulful, timeless voice to this deep well of traditional songwriting. Speaking to this first single Rose says “this song is about a love that is failing and that moment when something is about to come to an end. That moment should still be appreciated and enjoyed because it’s still part of love. I was trying to reason with myself about something that I had no control over. Medicine for Living is about realizing that all we can do is be loving and reach for love and that in itself can be healing.“
