Rose Thorn is a singer/songwriter who made her solo recording debut last year with the release of her single “Tigerwoman.” That track introduced a talented young singer with a philosophical vibe and a taste for the Blues. In addition to her solo work, the UK 19 year-old is also a member of the Brighton-based band After Arden.
With a deep love for and faith in humanity, Rose Thorn says she makes music to, “spread understanding and love to all the complex characters out there.” To that end the songwriter paints Bluesy scenes with narratives that explore the nuances of life in our modern world. An empathetic soul, she connects with her audience by recognizing and celebrating the commonality of the human experience.
“Hey Johnny” is the latest single from Rose Thorn, released worldwide to all major streaming services on April 22, 2022. A small Blues ensemble opens the track, riding a funky bass groove. Rose Thorn steps to the mic and delivers a soulful narrative about a misguided soul trying in vain to find happiness in material gains and superficial gratification. Through the first half of the track Rose’s smooth and bluesy vocal trades riffs with some slick Blues guitar leads. As the song progresses the mix expands to include multipart vocal harmonies and keys to create a lush Pop sound.
