Nashville up-and-comer Whitney Rose will bring her formidable talents to Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom this Sunday evening.
The Canadian-bred singer is out on tour in support of her new album, Rule 62, which dropped on October 6th. Born on Prince Edward Island and transplanted to South Texas, Rose’s background brings a unique flavor to her Country stylings. Heavily influenced by old-school Country stars like Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Dolly Parton and Hank Williams, Sr., she did a one-time opener in Toronto for The Mavericks. Raul Malo, founder and lead vocalist of The Mavericks, saw something special in her and she became their opening act for the majority of The Mavericks 2013 tour.
Assembling a dream team of musicians, Rule 62 was produced by Raul Malo of The Mavericks and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge among others). The band assembled for the recording resembled a “Fantasy Pick,” with not only Raul being able to add his own musical prowess (in addition to producing), but also Paul Deakin (The Mavericks) on drums, Jay Weaver (Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, The Mavericks) on bass; Jen Gunderman (Sheryl Crow) on piano; Chris Scruggs (Marty Stuart) on steel; Aaron Till (Asleep at the Wheel) on the fiddle; and Kenny Vaughn (Marty Stuart, Lucinda Williams) on lead guitar.
