Esther Rose

New Orleans, LA

Esther Rose released her debut album 'This Time Last Night' June, 2017. The album was recorded live to a 2-track tape machine at Mashed Potato Studios in the Lower 9th ward of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Since it's release, Rose has toured with her album and shared the stage alongside The Punch Brothers, The Deslondes, and Pokey LaFarge. Rose is featured on Jack White's latest solo album on the country-soul duet 'What's Done is Done'.

Rose is inspired by the honest writing and soaring melodies of American greats such as Hank Williams Sr. and Joni Mitchell, and the community of writers and musicians around her New Orleans neighborhood.

...she channels country pioneers in a way that sounds incredibly genuine and free of contrivance. Her voice has a pitched-up June Carter quality, her melodies are simple like Jimmie Rodgers’s, and her tone is reminiscent of bluesy, lovelorn greats like Rex Griffin and Patsy Cline.
The songs on This Time may be simple in structure but they pack a serious punch. They’re all precise in feeling, but unlimited in perspective.
