Country music duo Rosehill releases its debut album White Lines and Stars on October 12th, featuring the eponymous radio chart-rising lead single and their newest radio hit, "Midnight America." Produced by Radney Foster, a Texas legend in his own right, and successful singer-songwriter Jay Clementi, this debut boasts personal and passionate songwriting with a distinctly Texas edge. Rosehill’s Mitch McBain and Blake Myers are the former founding members of regional favorite Texas High Life. Having earned their road degree, McBain and Myers stripped down to their roots and relocated back to their hometown of Cypress, Texas. There, they broke ground on a new musical beginning.
“The songs just began to flow out of us. We weren’t just writing songs to write songs anymore, we were telling our stories, our lives,” said Myers. Their songwriting sessions snagged the support of country music renaissance man Radney Foster. With conviction about their new direction, Rosehill entered the studio to record their first full-length album. Foster says of the experience, “The thing that I loved about working with Rosehill is their fierce desire to win you over on the stage and to get it right in the studio. Their determination and talent are a deadly combination.”
Rosehill’s lead single “White Lines and Stars” has had much success climbing the Texas Music Charts, reaching as high as #14 in just a few short weeks after its debut. With its easy groove and bright harmonies, the song depicts a carefree trip down an endless highway, with nothing but the stars above and the love of your life in the passenger seat to illuminate the journey. Their new single "Midnight America" is already seeing success at radio and is sure to be just the next in a long string of hits.
Texas grit adds texture to the polished country sound throughout the album. Opener “West of Sunset” stomps in with a vintage guitar lick that easily sets the pace for the rest of the alt-country to follow. “Believer” delivers upbeat harmonies between McBain and Myers with a hook that effortlessly remains in your head. The harmonica-tinged closing track “Love Burns On” reminisces a lost friend and celebrates life’s gifts.
Each endeavor on White Lines and Stars cements the pair’s penchant for meaningful and relevant songwriting, painting a collective tale of love and loss that is both intimate and relatable. Rosehill goes a step further in sharing their journey with their listeners with their "Ridin' With Rosehill" podcast and video series, available on their website.
