Looking For Some New Bands To Obsess Over? Rosie and Me!

SXSW is right around the corner, and it is already time to start discovering your new favorite bands for 2012. Look no further, as we have the answer right here in front of you! Meet the infectious, and sensational, ROSIE AND ME, an act that will catch your attention immediately.

Hailing from Southern Brazil, the five-piece band fronted by Rosanne Machado, draws inspiration from their culture as they blend their sound with American folk music. This is a unique combination that illuminates throughout their music. Machado leads the band on their musical journey as she is a triple threat on lead vocals, acoustic guitars and banjo. Alongside Rosie are Ivan Camargo (acoustic guitars), Thomas Kossar (electric guitars), Guilherme Miranda (bass guitars) and Tiago Barbosa (drums/perc). The group blends insightful lyrics, brilliant melodies and luscious female vocals reminiscent of indie favorites like Feist and Joy Williams from The Civil Wars.

2010 saw ROSIE AND ME releasing Bird and Whale, which gained critical acclaim from over 80 music blogs worldwide, and a dedicated fan base. Now with a new batch of songs in tow, ROSIE AND ME are a ready to take the music world by storm once against as they will see the release of Arrow of My Ways on January 25th on iTunes.

Today, I listened to Arrow of My Ways (featuring Greg Thomas). I love the sound. Quiet and haunting accompanied by a beautiful voice.  Arrow of My Ways, reminds me of droving down the road on a rainy day, alone, with no direction, just the sound of the road, the rain and my thoughts. 

I also listened to Home (featuring Joshua Thomas). I love the acoustic guitars, very dreamy and haunting.
