Raised in a Virginia-West Virginia border town and now based out of Black Mountain, North Carolina, Alexa Rose has always had a rugged sense of country living and love of travel imbued in her music. Rose won over plenty of listeners with her intimate breed of Americana folk rock on her 2019 debut Medicine for Living, and with impressive maturation over a mere two years, is set to conquer a more cinematic sound with the upcoming Headwaters.
The nine tracks on Headwaters submerges you into Rose’s thorny examination of human nature through petals of poignant lyrics, bucolic arrangements, and of course, Alexa’s mesmerizing vocals. Headwaters streams in full on September 17th, and Alexa Rose has given a promising forecast to the record’s rockier side with its latest road-trip-inspired single, “Big Sky“!
