From Nashville Eileen Rose & the Holy Wreck return to the UK for the first time in over five years and with a new album under their belt ‘Eileen Rose – Muscle Shoals’ which they just finished recording at the famed Southern Studio, it is destined to be a hands-down favorite for long term fans and the surprise of the year for those yet to discover Rose’s extraordinary songcraft and astonishing voice.

Established in 1969 Muscle Shoals the “Hit Recording Capital of the World.” where icons like The Rolling Stones, Linda Rondstadt, Dylan, Willie Nelson, The Staple Singers, The Allman Brothers recorded some of their most beloved songs.

The instruments used on records like Brown Sugar, Wild Horses where there for Eileen to use.

Rose’s breakthrough album, 2000’s Shine Like It Does, recorded with country-techno renegades Alabama 3 (responsible for the theme tune to The Sopranos) was released on Rough Trade Records. The newly minted solo artist had the music press reaching for the superlatives. And so it’s been for every Rose album to follow. These include Rose stand-outs Be Many Gone (2015), Luna Turista (2010), At Our Tables (2008), Come The Storm (2005) which Judy Collins personally offered to release in the US after seeing Rose on stage in Glasgow.

Her band The Holy Wreck, feature guitar master Rich Gilbert (Frank Black, Jack White) Chris Machlalan on bass, and Steve Latanation (Agent Orange, The Legendary Shack Shakers) on drums.

“Makes you want to roar down the highway with the windows open and a finger on the repeat button.” – Rolling Stone

“SHE KEEPS you guessing, this Eileen. One moment she could be Chrissie Hynde staring you out in black leather, but elsewhere you’re more inclined to peg her into the Gillian Welch school of roots revival.” – MOJO
