When: Mon., April 16 2018
New York City based rock-n-roll powerhouse Anna Rose will be hitting the road on a co-bill with singer/songwriter Andrea Nardello from Philadelphia. They will be working their way down the East Coast with this one month run of shows that will kick off in Portland, Maine at Empire on April 5th. Anna had this to say about the upcoming tour: “I'm thrilled to be touring with Andrea, an artist who I vibed with and admired from the minute we met. Her songs are brilliant, her heart is pure gold and I think the collaborative elements that we're bringing to these shows will be really exciting for our fans.” Andrea added: “There is nothing better than going on tour with like-minded artists. I can’t wait to share the stage with Anna Rose and travel to some of my favorite spots. She has a powerful voice and is full of light. April can’t come fast enough!” Anna Rose is walking, singing proof that big things most definitely come in small packages. The fiery singer, whose sound was defined as “bluesy rock-n-roll" by Paper Magazine , announces tour in support of her latest acclaimed EP Strays In The Cut. Of Strays In The Cut, Elmore Magazine raved, "channeling’90s pop/rock voices, Rose delivers some hauntingly beautiful music." Strays in the Cut is a collection of six mesmerizing tracks that find Rose at the top of her game, pushing musical boundaries in pure ass-kicking style. Strays in the Cut is the much-anticipated follow-up to Rose’s Behold a Pale Horse. Behold a Pale Horse introduced us to Rose’s dynamic voice and effortless command of the guitar; each song highlighted by attitude and pure grit. Undoubtedly, Behold a Pale Horse cemented Rose as a veritable force, with hard-driving Rock and dirty Blues coursing through her veins. Rose has shared the stage with a variety of notable artists, including: Ron Pope/Von Grey, Marc Cohn, Joan Osborne, John Waite, Lez Zeppelin, Crystal Bowersox, Howie Day, Teddy Geiger, Tony Lucca, Lee DeWyze, Tyler Hilton and founding member of Live, Ed Kowalczyk. The consummate artist, Rose lets her spirit shine through with every performance, while captivated fans hang on every note. Philly's Andrea Nardello has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style, exploring relationships, romance, and her family life. Nardello's refined accessibility draws from folk, rock, soul, and even the swagger of hip-hop. She can tug at your heartstrings with her softer tunes and get you dancing on your feet with her upbeat songs and powerful voice. Fans ride an unforgettable emotional roller coaster during her live shows. Nardello also spends time fundraising for important causes like The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and The MILE (Music Is Love Exchange). Nardello completed two service trips to Guatemala in support of the MILE. The MILE is a network of artists, musicians, and music lovers that bring positivity and change to the lives of disadvantaged and underserved children, strengthening families and communities both in the U.S. and abroad. Nardello is always willing to help, offer her time and believes that music is a universal language that helps heal and connects us all.
