Lost Discs of 2008 – Rose Polenzani’s “When The River Meets The Sea”

I love Rose Polenzani. I love her goofy YouTube video’s. I love her songs. I love the fact that she’s got so many friends in the folk community. I love the fact that she’s from Boston (my hometown).

This new record has barely had time to be a “Lost Disc of 2008″ as it was just released nationally on Oct. 1. But even from the start it’s an under-the-radar record from and under-the-radar artist. This record has not appeared on any of the various release lists I peruse, yet it is one that I would value above many of the records that do make those lists.

Rose is joined by my favorite rag tag group of Boston musicians, Session Americana, on this record. They recorded it live in ex-Morphine leader Mark Sandman’s studio. Special guests include Jennifer Kimball and Anna Egge. When The River Meets The Sea is available now from Rose’s site here. Rose will support the release of this record with a mini tour in November. She’ll be stopping in Evanston on Nov. 16 to play a club called Space.

    I'm glad to see someone else posting about Rose's music. :) She was a finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song competition, which is how I first heard about her.

  2. [...] Cop Shop has Broken Records’ Ukulele Song (get it before they sign to a major), Songs:Illionois has tracks from Rose [...]
