Stunningly reminiscent of Marty Robbins, Whitney Rose’s new release South Texas Suite opens with “Three Minute Love Affair”, and then the brilliance continues to unfold. Blending styles and genres seemingly comes easy for this Austin-based Canadian ‘countrypolitan’ star. And rarely does an artist trying to find and hone that late 60’s and early/mid- 70’s country sound work without sounding pandering or a modernized mimic.
As you go through tracks like tracks “Analog”, “Bluebonnetts for My Baby” and further you’ll marvel in loungy foot movin’ Honk Tonk, early 60’s era pop, and Lyn Anderson style classic radio country. And doing it all with authenticity. That kind of heart that you feel in your soul.
