Whitney Rose tours Europe on "Rule 62" as we speak


There are many useful rules to live by, but for Whitney Rose, there’s one that stands alone as a guiding principle for life as she knows it: Rule 62. The origin of the rule is best summed up by the poignant, pronoun-adjusted excerpt from Alcoholics Anonymous’ Tradition Four cited above, a treatise on how to find harmony between ambition and self-awareness, and how to learn one’s lessons with humor and humility. This truism, officially worded as “Don’t Take Yourself Too Damn Seriously,” is the origin of both the title and ethos of Whitney Rose’s new album on Six Shooter RecordsRule 62.

Rule 62 sees the songwriter’s increased output matched by increased distinction. With so much touring now under the tires, it’s no surprise that Rose’s best work yet often explores her journeywoman’s experience. Rule 62 also boasts the first-class musicianship and studio instincts of collaborator and producer Raul Malo (of The Mavericks). The comfort and familiarity between the two made for a seamless return to the studio, this time with the added ear of Niko Bolas as co-producer.

Whiles she's featured on the cover of Texas Music Magazine she's paying attention to Europe as well. She's been in Spain for the last week and from this week onwards she's touring through France, Germany, Belgium, UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Italy:
