AUSTIN, Texas — Before moving to Austin, Whitney Rose had never danced the two-step. Now, the country-pop singer’s infatuation with Texas’ rich musical culture, from stage to studio to dance floor, informs an enthralling new project, a love letter to the Lone Star State. Her new EP, South Texas Suite, is a touch nostalgic, deeply romantic and defiantly personal — it’s Texas, through Whitney Rose’s eyes and ears.

South Texas Suite is a meticulous study of sound and place, but also a product of unexpected circumstance. Last October, shortly after the release of her album Heartbreaker of the Year, Rose packed up her boot collection and headed south to play a two-month residency at Austin’s famed Americana bastion, the Continental Club. But that November-December engagement went so well, she wound up staying. Since then, she’s toured with Sam Outlaw, made her European debut and signed with Thirty Tigers-distributed Six Shooter Records.

Rose became smitten with Texas, and the warm welcome from Austin’s vibrant musical community made her feel right at home. Songs started pouring out — so many that she just had to start recording. The first result is this new EP, which will be released January 27, 2

​Playing for Pennies is the alias of Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and guitarist Brian Davis. Although Brian performs as a solo acoustic act, in 2015 he asked longtime friend Nicholas Miller to join him on drums for a new album. The result was Up with the Light On, an alternative rock album with folk and blues influences and a narrative songwriting style. Up with the Light On is the follow up to Brian’s debut solo EP titled Dead Ends and Happy trails, released in 2014.
