Let’s kick-off the week by introducing you to singer-songwriter David Rosales.
Reminiscent of artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, and Ryan Bingham, Rosales shakes things up with a broad sonic palate rooted in American folk, blues and country. The perfect sound for this summer heat.
We recently sat down for a Q&A with Rosales. We asked about his sophomore EP, the writing process, who he’d like to collaborate with, etc. Check out our Q&A, below and be sure to purchase a copy of David’s new EP, Along The Way on iTunes.
1.) Your new EP is titled ‘Along The Way,’ why did you choose that title.
Does it have a significant meaning?
- It’s a lyric from a song on the album (“Too Young to Know Better”). It seemed to sum up how the album came about and where I’m at in life. Things are rolling along nicely and I’m thankful for that.
2.) You worked with Matt Grundy & Paul Clark on the EP. How was it working with them?
- Matt & Paul are a great bunch of scoundrels to work with. Always a lot of fun. They are so very talented and can really see the smoke through the trees.
3.) What was the writing process like?
- It was a very organic and natural process. I really quite enjoyed it. I gathered ideas I had been courting last Fall and wrote my tail off. Finishing all ideas not matter how off the wall they were.
4.) We listened to your first single, “Too Young To Know Better” and we
absolutely love it. It has a really chill sound to it and the lyrics are pretty interesting. Is it a biographical song about losing the person that you love?
- Thank you, that’s very kind. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It is a mix of people and events that have happened in my life. So in that respect it is autobiographical, but, no, it’s not about one singular person or event.
5.) Do all of the tracks have the same vibe as “Too Young To Know Better”
or do you experiment a bit with new sounds?
- No, not really. Each song stands on it’s own and is unique in their own way. There’s a bit of blues, rock, country and folk on the EP.
6.) Is there an artist that you want to work with in the future?
- There are so many amazing artists out there that inspire me. I think it would be a lot of fun to work with Jack Johnson in some capacity.
7.) What would you like to tell your fans? (it can be a thanks, advice, etc.)
- Thanks for all the love and support… Really proud of this new music video for “Too Young to Know Better.” Check it out, below.
