Next Journey

By: Laurie Gallardo

The Austin Music Minute featured Rosie and The Ramblers at least a couple of times as a must-see midnight show at The White Horse, around 2014-2015. That’s around the time band’s album Whatever You Need had come out to critical accolades, notably for front woman Selena Rosanbalm‘s exceptional vocals. That voice has also given the Austin-based songwriter bragging rights, thanks to praises from Shawn Colvin that did not mince words: “Selena sings her ass off!” Hell yeah. Add to that a sharp humor giving extra fire to The Ramblers’ country flare.

A considerable amount of time has passed since the last Ramblers album, following Rosanbalm’s much-needed break to grieve the sudden loss of a loved one and sort through the torrent of emotions that followed. However, the bereavement led to a wake up call, a new perspective that’s radiating on Rosanbalm’s latest self-titled release, as she taps into renewed energy and newer inspiration. Those vibrant vocals reveal not only the heartbreak, but something strangely hopeful on the horizon.

Selena Rosanbalm celebrates the release of her new LP with a livestream show at 6:30 p.m. Central tomorrow night, Thursday October 8, on Bud’s Live and Direct on YouTube.
