Ascendant singer and guitarist Anna Rose’s deeply honest and soulful new album The Light Between is out today via White Pony/Soulspazm. Produced by GRAMMY-nominated Paul Moak, the album features ten original songs written and recorded in Nashville and follows Rose’s praised 2016 EP Strays In The Cut.

Rose’s tireless U.S. tour has already seen her play to huge crowds at CMA Fest, Pilgrimage Festival as well as at headlining shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis and more. Newly confirmed dates include upcoming shows with Will Varley and Granville Automatic with stops in Chicago, Boston, New York, D.C. and more. See below for full tour dates.
Album single “Nobody Knows I’m Here,” was first heard in the NBC hit This Is Us, with additional songs “Sucker Puncher” and “The Chariot” having been released earlier this year to wide acclaim.
Rose, whose father is legendary composer Alan Menken (Aladdin, The Little Mermaid), has long been known for her adept guitar playing and hard-driving dirty blues but for this album she’s rediscovered her Americana roots, channeling some of the great female singers of our time—from Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt to Stevie Nicks and Patty Griffin.
“Throughout a time of deep turmoil and sadness, I found myself in Nashville a lot, writing not just for myself but for other artists and for film and television. That city slowly began to really feel like home. Working there, making art there… really helped me heal a lot of the wounds that I had collected along the way in my life,” shares Rose. “I’m eternally grateful to the city of Nashville for opening their arms to me. As a bit of an outsider, it gave me a place where I felt like I belonged for the first time really…ever.”
Emotion bursts out from Rose’s voice like a hurricane finally let loose

The 10-song set is a stylistic sea change for her, moving from the heavier rock of the two albums and EP she’s previously released into a more melodic, Americana realm
