Free MP3: Rose Flores “Working Girl’s Guitar”

The title track for Rosie Flores’ upcoming album Working Girl’s Guitar came about as naturally as possible. Flores sold one of her well used guitars to another musician in Austin. The next day, that musician hit her up with the song. He claimed he didn’t write it—the guitar did.

Rosie and Me, “I Couldn’t Reach You”

Rosie and Me, “I Couldn’t Reach You”

Rosie and Me are not your average country band. Hailing from Curitiba, in Southern Brazil, the group plays music that would sound at home in any Nashville bar.

Singer Rosanne Machado’s voice is lovely and light. She sounds natural singing English with a hint of country twang. The rest of the five-piece band is just as able, playing easily likable country melodies.

Rosie and Me have just released their first full length album, titled Arrow of My Ways. Written and produced entirely by the talented Ms. Machado, it’s an irresistible mix of heart-filled lyrics with catchy alt-country tunes.
