Artist: Rachel Reese
Single: ‘Dozen Roses;’ Produced by Jesse LaFave at Austin’s Cedar Creek Recording
With a broad palette of personal and professional inspirations to support her, up-and-coming country singer-songwriter, Rachel Reese, is powerfully translating her experiences into the creation of her own musical identity. The current Austin-based musician, who has also studied studio recording and crafted songs in Nashville, is furthering her potential to become a true mainstream country star with her current material. Her newly released single, ‘Dozen Roses,’ is not only noteworthy for being smartly produced, but it’s also well-written in the fact that it tells her authentic opinion about romantic relationships.
Graced with a unique and soulful voice and an emotional sentimentality about love, the singer-songwriter proves once again with ‘Dozen Roses’ that she can naturally develop songs that combine southern sincerity with pop sensibility. The blues and Americana-infused track also showcases that she can combat her vulnerability with confidence.
The girl power anthem highlights the importance of women being able to say goodbye to a faithless lover once and for all. The passionate and honest vocals, which are supported by a dominating country-inspired instrumental arrangement, were created with care. The strong message of the tune emphasizes what happens when a partner fails the other. Reese commandingly croons about how some actions within a relationship can’t be fixed, even with the title gift, because they’re too objectionable to be overlooked. After catching the man she loved cheating on her, she realized that’s time to let him go and move on to someone who will treat her better. The musician sings with confidence that her self-worth is more valuable than any relationship.
‘A Dozen Roses’ offers an enticing preview of what listeners can expect from the master storyteller’s upcoming first full-length album, ‘West.’ Driven by a Carrie Underwood vibe and influence, Reese’s latest single has the potential to be a true country hit, as it’s extremely relatable and can be listened repeatedly, especially by people who have gone through a similar heartbreak.
