Singer/guitarist Nolan and bassist/keyboardist Jeff Bailey (plus a drummer) have crafted a half-dozen attractive songs; give them a bigger recording budget and they could take over the world. When Nolan sings most raucously,as on "Catch Up," there's a passing resemblance to Throwing Muses crossed with a dab of T-Rex. Her norm is a more wispy, girlish voice, but she varies her tone expertly, including a lo-fi incarnation for the verses of "Feel It" that perfectly emphasizes the differences of mood. The arrangements also
vary density and timbre expertly, complementing the sly wit of the lyrics.
This Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY) trio doesn't just show promise, it's
already started to fulfill some of that promise with this enjoyable disc. - Big Takeover Magazine


The Rosy Nolan Band gets its name from front chick, singer/songwriter Rosy Nolan. This surprisingly enchanting trio (Rosy on vocals and guitar, Jeff Bailey on bass, and Jason Chester on drums) had me swaying to whimsical melodies with a touch of country twang melancholy, soft beats and visceral lyrics like "You are the plane that flies me solo." In nonchalant conversation, Rosy's voice is surefooted but on stage her voice takes on a sweet precariousness with a hint of Marilyn Monroe. She really lets her voice go mid set as she wails unpredictably "I'm looking for someone to take what's wrong and make me feel alright." The bridge in "Tread Lightly" is quite an engaging detour down a trip-hoppish lane and the bassist offers up pleasing vocal harmonies while the drummer's beats are subtly supple; not overpowering. Great energy from a band whose tunes are swoon able, catchy and playful. Analogies are sometimes suffocating but if roses are to red then The Rosy Nolan Band is to full color.
Looking forward to catching this band in a larger venue. - New York Artist Series
