A woman of exceptional versatility and variety, the Nashville-based artist draws from the many musical genres at play in the city — a love of storytelling and substantive, an affinity for finely crafted pop production, R&B's commitment to an irresistible groove. Familiar elements all, but Maggie Rose combines them in a singular way. It's always honest, always her.
Maggie Rose's new tracks "Just Getting By" and "Pull You Through" show a powerhouse singer in complete command not only of her live-in-the-studio recording sessions but also of her creative and prolific career. Recording in Nashville with an 11-piece band, Maggie's making the most exciting music of her life as she taps into the vein of Linda Ronstadt and Adele.
Maggie envisioned a unique level of rawness for these sessions, an approach to recording she had never taken before. Rather than building the tracks through overdubs, she wanted all the players -- the rhythm section, the guitarists, the vocalists -- in one place together, taking cues from each other and responding in the moment. Her band consists not of the city's studio talent but of members of The Morrison Brothers Band and Them Vibes, as well as friends from Nashville's music scene who are plenty talented in their own right and have played with Kelly Clarkson, Brothers Osborne, Steven Tyler and others. The sound springs from the shared experiences of a community.
"Just Getting By" and "Pull You Through" encompass the lifetime of a relationship. "Just Getting By," which Maggie — a newlywed — wrote in the wake an argument with her husband, shows a couple wrestling to establish a unified identity. "It's not simply about the feeling of falling head over heels in love or of being in an argument, it's about profound commitment to one another," Maggie says. "It's about having hope and believing in yourselves. It's kind of romantic that we're in hustle mode as much as we are. I feel like I'll look back on this time of my life, and it will seem dreamy to me." Maggie wrote "Pull You Through", a soulful ballad, while she was engaged, imagining years into her future -- and the implication of the phrase “’til death do us part." "You grow up your whole life knowing that's part of the wedding ceremony, but to hear it and realize its gravity is overwhelming," she says.
Them Vibes bleed rock n’ roll.
Formed in East Nashville’s underground rock scene in 2013, the band quickly shook the foundations of Music City with their blitzkrieg live show and soulful songwriting. Influenced by the rhythmic sway of The Faces and T-Rex and infected with the raw energy of the Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes, Them Vibes have injected new life into the anemic arm of what currently passes for mainstream rock n’ roll.
Co-founded by singer-songwriters Brother Love and Alex Haddad, Them Vibes released their debut record, Shine On, independently and began hitting the Nashville and Austin scenes as a five-piece band playing coveted gigs at the High Watt, The Basement, The Mercy Lounge, The Continental Club, the Blue Bird Café, to name a few. Their wild, high- voltage revival of a live show was brought to festival crowds at Austin’s SXSW; they were the headliner at The Tomato Music And Arts Fest; opened for the Flaming Lips at the Sound Harvest festival; and, in front of thousands of onlookers, they have opened for such classic artists as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet.
Them Vibes’ sophomore release was the heavy hitting EP TV. Grammy award-winning producer and engineer Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, George Harrison, Counting Crows, The Civil Wars, Kings of Leon and Wilco) took the helm as producer. The result was a five song cliff dive of psychedelic, hard driving, slinky grooving, swamp-howling rock n roll.
The single “Mammas Gotta Secret” took radio by storm, with national radio play on over twenty stations nationwide. Network television began to taken notice, as well. Both album’s respective cuts garnered placements on ABC’s Nashville, NBC’s Grimm, Fox’s Cooper Barrett, and CMT’s Redneck Island and Dude Perfect, and the Netflix Original series The Ranch. Their biggest commercial success was led by their raucous song Crying Shame, which was chosen by T-Mobile to lead their spring campaign.
Off the heals of their strides stateside the band turned their attention across the pond embarking on a month long European tour. Playing sold out shows in Germany, France, Belgium, Slovakia, and Spain, gaining critical acclaim, radio play and most importantly throngs of new fans.
When they returned to the U.S the band went right to work writing and recording their new album Electric Fever. Larry Florman (Brother Love), Alex Haddad, lead guitar player Kyle Lewis, and the prodigious, up and coming Nashville producer Bobby Holland wanted to make the most ambitious rock n roll record to come out in the last decade. With the help of the rhythmic fury of drummer Sarah Tomek (Steven Tyler, Maggie Rose, Loving Mary, Raelyn Nelson) and bassist Judd Fuller (Rodney Adkins, Buck Johnson of Aerosmith), Them Vibes did just that. Recording everything full band and live at Addiction Studios in Nashville, Electric Fever is a kaleidoscope of sound and sonic ecstasy. The twelve side LP is colored in Muscle Shoals soul, hip shaking beat break funk, southern rock harmony guitars, tribal heavy rhythms injected with rock n roll ferocity, broke down acoustic delight, and all and above driven by harmony and groove full speed ahead.
The self titled single Electric Fever has already been leaked to the number one independent radio station in the United States Lightning100, and in its inception has caught quite a buzz. The single, due to popular demand, has been officially released on iTunes and every major music streaming platform, and the album Electric Fever is due out late spring.
The band will be hitting the US interstate in support of their new record.
