Trinity House in the Round w/ David Rossiter, Emily Rose and Josh Rose – August 20, 2021
August 20 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm$20
Trinity House In the Round will welcome David Rossiter, Emily Rose and Josh Rose on August 20, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. for a concert in front of a small in person audience. The Youtube Premier will take place on Friday September 10, 2021.
In 1999, David Rossiter lost a close friend to a freak accident and picked up the guitar. Since then he’s been mesmerizing audiences with a unique blend of dark, driving, off-kilter, roots rock music.
Rossiter sings, often in the first-person, of people tarnished by bad blood and worse luck who still find ways to make it through to the next town, day, marriage, misadventure, or barstool. A signature percussive finger style technique and powder keg voice help bring it all to sonic life.
In 2003, David founded the roots rock band Hoodang, releasing three studio recordings while barnstorming festivals and music venues across the Midwest. Hoodang persists post-pandemic with David being joined by vocalist Sophia Hanifi and singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Dave Keeney.
Emily Rose is a Detroit based singer/songwriter and poet. Her most recent release ‘Wake Up Brave’ is a collection of intimate, confessional songs that are peculiar but relatable. She is currently at work on an album about animals.
Jeff Milo in the Metro Times wrote, “Emily Rose admits she’s a perfectionist. Not that everything has to be perfect, but her songs, and even more specifically the stories in her lyrics, need to feel just right — they each need to find and address a truth, or a struggle, or an ineffable urge of the soul. That struggle isn’t always resolved on her new album, Wake Up Brave, but a hopefulness is always located.”
In 2019 Emily was awarded Outstanding Americana Recording from the Detroit Music Awards for her album “Wake Up Brave”. Emily has also received recognition from the DMA for Outstanding Americana Vocalist in 2018 & 2020, 2017 Outstanding Americana Songwriter, 2014 Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Artist, 2009, 2010 & 2013 Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Songwriter.
Emily has played locally in Michigan and toured nationally. She has shared the stage with Amos Lee, Matthew Good, War and Treaty, Greta Van Fleet, The Sweet Water Warblers, and many others.
Songs tend to originate in some Nashville/LA factory with the glossy coating shaped by a countless number of “pros”. The writers upon engineers upon co-writers upon writers upon stylists pass these song-objects down a huge manufacturing line and then watch the dollar signs flash. The song (that you’ve heard before) enters the public consciousness, launches a career or two, and then vanishes into oblivion. The throw-away culture strikes again.
There are other songs, though, that come from craftsmen, like the characters you see working away at some Americana exhibit creating relics of an unknown past. These song craftsmen create works that are plucked from the air, like lightning bugs destined for an old Mason jar. The songs of these artists become polished like the ancient stones in the Flat River. These songs come wrapped in brown paper with an old twine ribbon. These songs come from the soul and etch themselves into your fabric.
Josh Rose is one of these craftsmen.
Josh grew up in the northern woodlands and fine-tuned his songwriting in the borderlands. He has spent the past ten years touring the Midwest, teaching, writing, and creating a rich body of work. Josh is the type of writer who labors over every word and wants his songs to be injected into the listener’s permanent being.
After his two previous studio albums, Firework Letdown and Slow Bloom, Josh is more than pleased to bring you Old Laminate.
