Biography

Rose Wintergreen is an enigmatic, softly-spoken powerhouse of a woman – a songstress whose unsettling directness and incredibly moving stories are fuelled by a complicated personal history, a fierce set of principles and a strong empathy for the suffering of others.

Her debut EP ‘Warm Chocolate Heart’, was produced by ARIA Award-winning legend Magoo and inspired by the sense of wellbeing generated by timely indulgence in the ultimate comfort food, warm chocolate mudcake. The metaphor sits well with her music, with soothing melodies and cathartic lyrics providing warmth and character to her minimalist, intimate arrangements.

Wintergreen’s songs are honest and deeply personal odes to survival and the discovery of unexpected strength – confronting, yet positive, and punctuated with quirky twists that testify to her determination, passion and sense of humour.

‘Warm Chocolate Heart’ is out on 14th October 2010, available digitally through most official online outlets including iTunes. You can also buy the CD via www.rosewintergreen.com. Best enjoyed on a cold winter’s night with a glass of red and a warm mudcake chaser.

For people who dig: Suzanne Vega, Joanna Newsom, Everything But the Girl, New Buffalo, Catherine Feeny, Laura Marling, Sarah Blasko.

Lyrics

Lonely Planet

Written By: Rose Wintergreen-Arthur


Can someone give me
The Lonely Planet Guide
To your heart?

I have a copy here
But the pages I need
Are all torn out

Going to travel you
Like a foreign country
I’ll leave no corner unexplored

Want to have the key
To your secret bits
And your dark

Going to travel you
Like a foreign country
I’ll leave no corner unexplored

Going to travel you
Like a foreign country
I’ll leave no corner unexplored

Can someone give me
The Lonely Planet Guide
To your heart?
