/// DAVID ROSALES – ALONG THE WAY
David Rosales is a Huntington Beach, CA based singer-songwriter. Reminiscent of artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee and Brett Dennen, Rosales shakes things up on his sophomore solo EP, Along the Way, with a broad sonic palate rooted in American folk, country and blues.
Along the Way, was recorded with the help of NightOwl Recorders’ producing partners, musicians and friends, Matt Grundy & Paul Clark (Donavon Frankenreiter). The EP begins with the American Songwriter Magazine premiered first single, “Too Young to Know Better.” With a serene, dream-folk vibe and a touch of country, the track swings into the EP’s uptempo and sun-soaked second single “Slice of Heaven,” featuring an infectious, fun-loving pop hook. Building momentum over the course of Along the Way‘s eclectic array of 7 seamless tracks, Rosales wraps-up the EP by showing his teeth in the gritty blues-driven third single, “Crashing Down.”
Rosales has been on a whirlwind of tour dates since the release of Along the Way, highlighted by a charity benefit with indie folk artist, Sea Wolf, and featured showcase at Toronto’s NXNE Festival during his Canadian & U.S. East Coast swing. For the remainder of summer Rosales will be playing through his home state, which includes a special performance with Grammy-winning Bluegrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers. This coming fall/winter, Rosales will be back on the road where he will be touring the U.S. with a stop at the CMJ Festival in New York City. [+]
