The Sally Rose Band will stop by WTJU Monday, June 3, for a visit to Back Up & Push.  They will be opening for Kathryn Caine on Friday, June, 13 at Friday's After Five in Charlottesville. The band is also celebrating the upcoming release of its debut EP, Oh My Stars!.

The Sally Rose Band is "the most spirited mother/daughter fronted group you will ever encounter", said Adam Gripp of Magazine 33. Sally Rose, the young and vibrant starlet writes original and eclectic songs while Catherine “Shootin' Moon” Monnes sews in colorful notes and tasteful textures. They cover a vast range of genres from southern rock, to gypsy folk, to appalachian, rag-time soul. Sally Rose (Nelson County, VA) plays an arch top acoustic guitar and rocks steady on a vintage, electric Fender for more plugged in sets. She sings most influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Feist, Dianna Ross, Sarah White, and Meagan Huddleston. Catherine (Orange, NJ) bows a fiddle, cello, spine-tingling electric violin, and strums the rub board ferociously. Holding down the beat and adding in sweet falsettos is Benjamin Jensen (Greensboro, NC) on a jazz style upright bass. “Sweet Pete” Stallings (Staunton, VA) adds undeniable funk and classic rock undertones with his vintage Telecaster. Together, they all sing hauntingly beautiful, blood harmonies that intertwine seamlessly.
