The new album, When the Water’s Hot, has truly been a journey for Ezza Rose. Field recordings began some time ago. Songs have had time to gestate and mature. The result? An intense studio album with a sudden and unexpected beauty.
Her album release is Saturday, January 17 at Mississippi Studios with Nick Jaina and Water Tower, doors 8pm, show 9pm, $10, 21+, tickets.
The Journey to an Expressive Life
ezza roseEzza Rose started her musical journey at a very early age. By a tender 7, having the tip jar ready when playing along with her daddy’s band in Julian, a tiny dot of a town a few hours east of San Diego. Small steps, determined steps, and most of all, HER steps. On HER terms.
Grit and drive is the takeaway. But not without cost, as you will hear in our conversation. But with out the cost, you don’t get the biggest gift; the chance to receive a different way of expressing life and reflecting exactly what’s going on. Ezza tells me “a song allows you to do whatever you want, …in the context of a song”. And along the way, she has been so lucky to encounter helpful people who are pushing the journey along, like that forthcoming tour to New Zealand.
