COUNTRY DARLING WHITNEY ROSE PAIRS WITH PRODUCER RAUL MALO (THE MAVERICKS) FOR NEW ALBUM

HEARTBREAKER OF THE YEAR, SET FOR RELEASE APRIL 21 VIA CAMERON HOUSE RECORDS

Recorded in four days at Revolution Studios in Toronto the album also features Jay Weaver (Mavericks, Dolly Parton) on bass, Nichol Robertson (Devin Cuddy Band) on guitars, Jerry Dale McFadden (Mavericks) on keys, Paul Deakin (Mavericks) on drums, Burke Carroll on pedal steel, and Drew Jurecka on strings. Learning the songs on the spot, the band came through with a completely spontaneous recording that brings Rose’s wondrous vocals and discerning lyrical content to the spotlight. Heartbreaker Of The Year was mixed at Capitol Records by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart), who supposes he “should take this opportunity to wax poetic about the charm, wit, and sexy cynicism of Whitney Rose, but that’s allot of words. So I will just say she has the shit.”

Raised on a steady dose of George Jones, Patsy Cline, and Connie Francis, it’s no shock that Rose would pay respect to her vintage pop and classic country roots with two covers – The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” and Hank Williams’ “Tear In My Beer.” The other eight tracks on Heartbreaker Of The Year are Whitney Rose originals ranging from the classic country cut “Last Party” to songs of heartbreak (“Heartbreaker of the Year”), love (“Ain’t It Wise”), love lost (“The Last Party”), firsts (“My First Rodeo”), being a brat (“The Devil Borrowed My Boots”), and unhealthy coping mechanisms (“Only Just A Dream”) cement the fact that the classic country themes are upheld here too.

An offshoot of the legendary Toronto club, made famous by Handsome Ned, Cameron House Records is carrying on the tradition of being a driving force behind the burgeoning roots music scene.
