GRAMMY.COM mentions Chelle Rose: Looking Back on Americana in 2012

THE MUSIC CLUB 2012 by Ann Powers
“”Younger Americana artists take their inheritance in a rowdy embrace, kissing it back to life with punk irreverence and buskers’ willingness to try whatever works… There’s a sexy edge to Americana’s latest phase, too, from empowered hot mamas like Chelle Rose and Sallie Ford to genuine teen idols the Avett Brothers.”

CMT NASHVILLE SKYLINE:
“‘El Cerrito Place’ has also been recently and admirably re-recorded by another East Tennessean, CHELLE ROSE, whose five-minute-plus stark acoustic demo turns the song into a gothic tale… Just listen to it sung. Listen to any of the four versions I have mentioned. It will hypnotize you.”

Conquer00 Press Release

“Rose and her sassy stance (make) the Dixie Chicks sound like Taylor Swift and pushes this into the red where it stays for 40 swaggering, brash minutes.”
—AMERICAN SONGWRITER

“To see someone finally fulfill their dream with a gorgeous piece of work as is the case with Chelle Rose’s record is truly one deserving of hugs and celebration.”
— NO DEPRESSION

“Who can Chelle Rose be compared to? I suppose one could come up with a list of influences and peers, but any such list would be misleading. Perhaps a jigger of Marianne Faithful, a shot of Townes Van Zandt, and a pinch from Dylan’s Time Out Of Mind period. But mostly we’re looking at a new, original recipe available in only one kitchen.” —BLOGCRITICS

“This album shows many real and fierce facets to Rose’s talent. Try her on for size if you are a fan of no-nonsense female songsmiths like Lucinda Williams and Loretta Lynn. You’re likely to find her a fine fit.” —STANDARD-EXAMINER (Salt Lake City metro)

“Yes, there is an alternative to the forgettable sound of a progression of popular but uninspiring artists. Her name is Chelle Rose, and Ray Wylie Hubbard has produced an album that won’t let you forget it.” —COUNTRY CHART.COM

“Hard-driving gritty collection of a dozen songs that each tell a story of a person or place that created and shaped the artist.” —ENGINE 145

“When you pop in Chelle Rose’s new CD, Ghost Of Browder Holler, the first thing that will hit you is her voice. At times she sounds like a female Mick Jagger, when the Stones were in their excellent country rock period, the way she deliberately stretches a vowel out. It’s a sort of affected twang, that Jagger did so well. She also reminds me a bit of Marshall Chapman, the way her voice creates such a vivid picture, a living world. There is also some of the roughness of Tom Waits in the arrangements and delivery.” —MICHAEL DOHERTY’S MUSIC LOG

“ . . .probably the best new album I have heard so far this year: Ghost of Browder Holler by Chelle Rose. Browder Holler is down in East Tennessee, which is where Chelle herself is from. She really makes the place come alive with a very nice line in character and story songs of the South of the sort you associate with Tony Joe White, Larry Jon Wilson and James “No Middle Name” McMurtry. In other words, bloody good songs. —27 LEGGIES

“A hard-driving gritty collection utilizing a piece of her own life path.” —THAT NASHVILLE SOUND

“Chelle Rose is an artist willing to peel back the bark and lay bare the raw torn poetry of her East Tennessee amaranthine soul; and this record is McQueen jumping a motorcycle over a barbed wire fence in the great escape blackout fever in the funk house believe me rock or die cool.” -Ray Wylie Hubbard
