Rosie and Me: Country Music Around the World

Rosie and Me, Taking a Closer Look at Artists from Around the World.

For obvious reasons, we spend a lot of time keeping up with the country and folk artists here in the good ole U.S. of A. But there are a lot of them out there in the lands beyond our borders too. These musicians and performers are talented and gifted, and we’d like to take the time to give them a bit of a shout-out!

To kick off what will hopefully be a weekly post, I have chosen a group that will be featured at next week’s SXSW (March 13th – 18th), Rosie and Me. They’re from Brazil and include, Rosanne Machado (vocals/acoustic guitars/banjo), Ivan Camargo (acoustic guitars), Thomas Kossar (electric guitars), Guilherme Miranda (bass guitars) and Tiago Barbosa (drums/perc).

They’re music is not country (definitely not in a Carrie Underwood or Jason Aldean kind of way). Their brand of music is folk, and its even kind of a pop infused folk. It has an honest, soul-touching honesty to it, and you can’t deny that Machado knows how to play that banjo!

So far they’ve released a 5-track EP, Bird and Whale and full 10-track album, Arrow of My Ways. You can hear the first track of the album in the video below, and let us know what ya think.
