Haroula Rose

So Easy (EP)

Out Now

Haroula Rose returns to prep for her forthcoming 2013 full-length, Here The Blue River, which is being produced by lauded singer-songwriter Jim White and Zac Rae (Pedestrian, Sara Lov, The Early Winters). Rose is currently running a Pledgemusic campaign to raise funds for the release. She’s also releasing a  new  single entitled “Time’s Fool”, which is  genuine Haroula – showcasing her sublime vocals  and songwriting skills.

Along with her music, Rose just finished working on a short film entitled No Love Song starring Rosanna Arquette, Daniel Ahearn and herself. The film is about two musicians who were in a band and relationship together and after an excruciating breakup have to write one last song. Co-written by Evan Endicott and Rose, it was directed Joselito Seldera,  with original music by Ahearn and Rose.

Haroula Rose’s EP So Easy was release in April 2012. My Old Kentucky Blog declared, ” Haroula Rose’s voice has the dreamy softness of Francoise Hardy or Claudine Longet’s – an observation that may be useless to anyone other than early-to-mid-‘60s sound junkies….perfect….”

Inspiration for these songs came from Haroula’s anticipation of the coming Summer and Autumn accordingly the selections have a range of being more upbeat and fully arranged than previous efforts, as well as sparse and moody .

The majority of the So Easy was recorded at The Carriage House in Los Angeles’ Silverlake district with Sheldon Gomberg (Rickie Lee Jones, Ben Harper, Ron Sexsmith, Jackson Browne, The Living Sisters, Lucinda Williams) producing. Along with two Rose originals, her reading of “Only Friends,” a rare Francoise Hardy B side, came out of these sessions. The title track was co-written with Jonny Flower and recorded in Echo Park at Magic Carpet Studios with Brad Gordon (Jim Bianco, Raining Jane, Rachael Yamagata and Dan Wilson) playing most of the instrumental parts and producing. “Wichita Lineman” is the Jimmy Webb-penned classic and Haroula re-imagines it as a spoken-word piece; this was recorded at The Bank, in Burbank, CA with Zac Rae, who’s performed the song in concert with no one less than Glen Campbell, producing.

Since These Open Roads2011 release, Rose has played extensively in Los Angeles and mounted a U.S. tour. Her songs have appeared in SCI FI’s “Being Human,” ABC Family’s ”The Lying Game,” MTV’s “Awkward,” FX’s “American Horror Story,”Jamie Travis’ feature hit comedy, “For A Good Time, Call…” and the award-winning documentary by Marc Smolowitz, “The Power of Two.” Her music was also used in a theatrical production on the East Coast called “American English.”
