ABOUT

"Singer songwriter Alexa Rose has all of the plaintive yodels and delicate-yet-smart lyrics to more than satisfy the folk-obsessed among us."

-Auntie Bellum Magazine

"With a tremulous country voice that harkens back to Loretta Lynn and Emmylou Harris, Alexa Rose is one of the freshest musical talents to appear in years. "

-SCENES Online Magazine

"Alexa Rose’s voice is a dream come true. It pivots from more traditional Americana sounds all the way to older tones, like folk tales from an ancient shore."

- Local Color, WNCW

Carolina songstress Alexa Rose crafts clever lyrics and boot-tapping mountain magic in her own brand of modern folk. She has spent her formative years curating original music in the Blue Ridge, releasing two albums in her early twenties. You can often catch her sporting her dusty Frye boots in some southern lagoon, or on the regional radio stations that spin her latest full-length release, "Low and Lonesome." Written on a hand me down guitar from her mother, the title track is a toast to Rose's heritage, and its anthem-like chorus haunts the listener with a somberness evocative of Gillian Welch.

Her band currently tours under the moniker, Alexa Rose & The Midnight Stringbird, and delivers heartfelt performances with stringed instruments and warm family-style harmonies. Since Rose began her run as a touring artist last year, she and her bandmates have shared stages with Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Ragbirds, and The Wild Reeds. Her song "Lottery Ticket" was featured WNCW's Midnight Folk pick of the week, and "Borrow Your Heart" was a finalist in the 2017 Chris Austin Songwriting Contest. In October 2016, Rose won Asheville NC's Brown Bag Songwriting Contest.

When asked which aspects of her music she hoped listeners would take away, Rose answered: "A sense of place of which they are a part. Once, after a show, an audience member said to us, “I felt like I was sitting on my grandparents’ porch listening to June Carter!” While we aren’t playing Carter Family covers or really presenting traditional music, we are mountain people curating art that is inseparable from our upbringing in the regional music and tradition of Appalachia and of the American South. This informs not only our playing style, but also the way we tell the stories within the songs — from homegrown tomatoes to heartbreaks. We want people to feel as good listening to our stuff as we feel when we play it." (Alexa Rose, Asheville Downtown Association Q&A, June 2017)
