Exceptionally versatile singer and songwriter Maggie Rose releases her highly-anticipated album in the Fall of 2018. Stamped with her affinity for finely-crafted melodies and intricate storytelling, the project encompasses a blend of American music including Rock, Soul, Country, Rhythm and Blues and Gospel. The determined and resilient Nashville-based powerhouse recorded her latest album at the famed Starstruck Studios in Nashville, Tennessee in an impressively demanding method that highlights an artist in complete command of her creative and prolific career: live in one take, no overdubs, no bullshit, with a 13-piece band “family band.”
Rose released four Digital 45s from her forthcoming project incrementally beginning in October 2017 to satisfy the anticipation of her fans, and with her first 45 she earned a spot on Sirius XM’s Top 10 with the “smoldering” A-side, “Pull You Through.” The “pulverizing” single was hailed a “soulful ballad that rejoices in the healing powers of love...a bare-bones track [that is] really a showcase for the Dusty Springfield-worthy vocals of Rose…”
In Spring of 2018, Maggie released "It's You" and "Smooth" with Rolling Stone calling "It's You" "a giant, throwback Soul ballad that shows off her dynamic vocals [containing] shades of Aretha Franklin." "Smooth" was labeled "a supremely funky rocker with hints of Grace Potter [and] Janis Joplin". The enthusiasm surrounding each Digital 45 release has only built up the appetite of her listeners awaiting the full project and accompanying musical documentary directed by Jeff Johnson surrounding the making of the album.

Rude Music has been a long time in the making for brothers Matt and Kevin Nolan. For the last decade, the rhythm section/songwriting duo represented two-fifths of The Morrison Brothers Band, a country/rock band that gained regional success, first in the Washington D.C. area, and then in Nashville, where the brothers have called home since 2015. This next chapter represents a turn toward a more soulful sound, leaning on all corners of American roots music, rock n’ roll and beyond, while reaching for ground yet to be discovered. “Think Los Angeles in the 1970’s with a bit more humidity,” says Kevin Nolan.
After moving to Music City, the Nolan’s quickly became mainstays around town, appearing regularly on stage and in the studio with Maggie Rose, Them Vibes, Brandon Whyde, Kree Harrison, Jason Martin, Steve Everett, Tony Lucca, Paul Pfau, Nate Frederick, Lexie Hayden and many others. Rounding out the core of the lineup is Marty MacMillan, a master luthier and veteran guitarist of the Detroit, Chicago, and Washington D.C. music scenes. “It’s definitely a mutual admiration society. Some of my favorite players are in this group,” says Matt Nolan, who plays drums and contributes on lead vocals. “The music we make allows everyone to really speak and do what they do.”
The group is currently in the process of recording their debut record in Muscle Shoals, AL, where the lion’s share of the material was written and arranged. The Northern Alabama town has been a coveted recording destination and musical second-home to countless icons since the 1950’s.
“It’s rude, baby. And it’s coming soon.”
