Bio: Virginia-born singer-songwriter Alexa Rose spent her formative years writing songs on a hand-me-down guitar in a little mountain town, and scaled down the Blue Ridge to settle in Western North Carolina in 2013. At 19, she released her debut album, "North," which spoke to her folk influences and featured simple renditions of handmade songs on piano and guitar. The album’s premier track, “The Bear,” was featured on WVTF Public Radio’s “Back to the Blue Ridge” program, as well as other regional radio stations.

Rose has been writing songs for nearly a decade now, but only recently became vagabond, touring her Appalachian folk-infused Americana since she graduated from Appalachian State University in 2015. She has been called a "rising voice of the region," sharing the stage with artists like Joy Ike and Jessica Lea Mayfield, and winning Asheville's acclaimed Brown Bag Songwriting Contest in 2016. "She has been touring up and down the region heavily, gathering fans along the way." - The Mountain Times

Rose's sophomore album, due for release on New Year's Day, was recorded at famed Echo Mountain, a studio that has fostered the work of artists like T Bone Burnett, The Avett Brothers, and Steep Canyon Rangers. "Low and Lonesome" is, at heart, a folk songwriter’s album; the simple arrangements lend themselves to the frankness of Rose’s masterful phrasing, allowing the natural beauty of her warbling soprano to transport the listener to new places through familiar territory. Rose’s nonchalant delivery ebbs and flows in optimal sync with her band. The album features Pretty Little Goat Stringband members Tim Fisher on fiddle and JT Linville on bass. Other highlights throughout include backing vocals from fellow singer-songwriter, Clint Roberts, and sweet pedal steel courtesy of the Honeycutters’ Matt Smith. Though “folk” is most likely the term that will come to most listeners’ minds, Rose proves to be far from one-dimensional.

"Singer/songwriter Alexa Rose has all of the plaintive yodels and delicate-yet-smart lyrics to more than satisfy the folk-obsessed among us."

Meeghan Kane, Auntie Bellum Daily

"Her songs are fresh, poetic and heartfelt."

Robin Russell, Scenes

"Alexa Rose’s voice is a dream come true. It pivots from more traditional Americana sounds all the way to older tones, like folk tales from an ancient shore."
