Having been a fan of Rosey’s for several years I’m always excited to hear new stuff she’s been working on so I already had high expectations before checking this out. I have to say even I was shocked at how much I loved the latest offering ‘Mary Jane’, in the time I’ve been watching Rosey I’ve been continually impressed by the staggering progress she has made as an artist, her vocals and song writing just continue to improve leaps and bounds. This rockier number from Rosey is sure to open her up to a whole new audience as well as satisfying those who already follow her. The intro very quickly showed me the maturity Rosey has developed in her song writing and hooks you immediately.
The fabulous instrumental work on the track coupled with Owain Jenkins’ (StudiOwz) excellent production really allows Rosey’s powerful vocals to shine through. There is a real anthemic feel to this tune and I could definitely see it being the hit of many country music festivals this summer should they have the good sense to book Rosey. ‘Mary Jane’ is flawlessly structured with the gritty intro leading into the track exploding into life with the gorgeous vocal prowess of Rosey.
2019 is set to be a breakout year for Rosey, she’s spreading her wings by playing gigs further afield and if this latest single is anything to go by there is going to be no stopping her. ‘Mary Jane’ feels like the start of an exciting new era for Rosey and a big step in her evolution as an artist.
