Today I'm happy to introduce the beautiful and talented Audrey Rose, she grew up in Kentucky but is currently a resident of Nashville, TN.
If your are in music, you have to be in a musical city, and none better than Nashville.
Artist and songwriter Audrey Rose is possessed of a singular vision of what music can be. “I have to create music that I’m proud of as a songwriter and as an artist,” she says with equal parts confidence and good humor. With the release of Smoke, her debut independent EP, Rose has much to be proud of. Her carefully composed, confessional songs evoke trans-continental imagery, from the romance of the West Coast to the darkened corners of Music City. These unflinchingly honest songs are rendered in enchanting shades of modern and classic pop, with whiffs of jazz and blues adding depth and soul and a uniquely arresting vocal style bringing it all home. more ............So now we know a little about her, it's time to listen to her music.
BTW: for a limited time you can download a live album featuring Audrey as well as Jessica Campbell and Hannah Miller recorded at the Red Clay Theater, from the wonderful folks at Noisetrade.

This is the great title track from her "Smoke" EP, released last year and still available.
No video per se, but the music is what we are here for.

If you are gonna do a cover then do the best songs I always say, and this is one of the best.
