"American Song Writer by David Mead"

Walter Rose’s new eponymous EP (4th St. Records) swells with enough warm, smoky ambiance to bring tears to the eyes of a hardened convict. Rose’s songs are melodic novellas of road trips through broken-down desert towns, the kind of stories that bring to mind tumbleweeds blowing through old Clint Eastwood movies. In fact, the entire recording sounds as if it could have been released in 1975, the sort of thing that might come crackling out of a road house jukebox in Barstow. Its flat, analog spectrum lends plenty of warmth to the nooks and crannies of Rose’s weathered delivery while showcasing the subtle dexterity of his backing musicians. There is no sparkle or fairy dust here; just long, open stretches of lonely highway winding into purple sunsets and swells of pedal steel, the perfect setting for Rose’s endless journeys in search of home. - American Song Writer

"Buscadero Magazine (Italy) by Marcello Matranga"

Walter Rose is a young musical talent from California with an EP recorded a few months ago, published by 4th Street Record. This EP is a little jewel for those who love bright ballads with great guitar sound. Rose’s voice could remind you of Steve Forbert at the beginning of his career. He builds wonderful ballads with a liquid guitar, and throwing pedal steel. You can hear this in songs like On My Mind and Driving South. To hear the song Black Crow, a key point of this record, would be enough understand what I mean. Rose comes from Carmel, California, a place described as beautiful from those who have traveled there. The EP was recorded with local musicians with the exception of Kerry Johnson (pedal steel guitar). Walter found Kerry thanks to a business card posted in a guitar shop. Walter called Kerry asking him to play on the record and he accepted. This record is really great, and gives us the opportunity to see inborn qualities that we hope will be confirmed this year. Rose told us, he’ll publish his first full length album this year that should include the songs on this EP. To find this wonderful EP go to or and you’ll find the instruction to download it. - Buscadero Magazine (Italy)
