“‘Bury Me Deep’ is a brooding, dark and sensual track. It’s part of the EP’s mellower one-two punch. She is in the “steamrolling” phase of her career. In many ways, she reminds me of Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in her Big Apple club days, trying on new sounds, seeing what works, what doesn’t, honing her craft, and preparing to take over the world.”
Anna Rose is walking, singing proof that big things most definitely come in small packages. The fiery singer, whose sound was defined as “bluesy rock-n-roll” by Paper Magazine, reveals the official lyric video for brooding, sexy track, “Bury Me Deep,” which comes from critically acclaimed EP Strays In The Cut. Of the video, Rose says, “The director, Wes Teshome, and I worked hard to make a visual landscape that complimented the mystery of the song. In this world, things are not always what they seem and words become guideposts along the way.” Rose also notes, “I wrote this song at a time where I very often felt misunderstood,” where spurts of emotion get lost in the chaos of life and the vast music industry,” said Rose. “Bury Me Deep” attests to that focus heard in its hazy guitar riffs, defined pulse and electricity. Attitude crosses honest writing and pierces your skin: Bury me deeper where the sun don’t reach / breaking my heart just so you can see the rest of me.
In support of the Noble Steed Music release, Rose will continue select tour dates across the U.S. supporting James McCartney, including a stop at Off The Record Fest in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Of the new EP, Elmore Magazine raved, “channeling’90s pop/rock voices, Rose delivers some hauntingly beautiful music.” Strays in the Cut is a collection of six mesmerizing tracks that find Rose at the top of her game, pushing musical boundaries in pure ass-kicking style.

Strays in the Cut is the much-anticipated follow-up to Rose’s Behold a Pale Horse, which Flashwounds declared a “deep swirl of Blues and Rock and Roll” that “beautifully represents the many dark and beautiful corridors of the human heart.” Behold a Pale Horse introduced us to Rose’s dynamic voice and effortless command of the guitar; each song highlighted by attitude and pure grit. Undoubtedly, Behold a Pale Horse cemented Rose as a veritable force, with hard-driving Rock and dirty Blues coursing through her veins. When The Gramophone Rings called her, “something of a rare breed” and claimed she is, “a singer-songwriter with an ear to 90s pop-rock and a penchant for big hooks, her sound is straightforward, even earnest, with a focus on performance over production.
In 2012, Rose also gained attention for her sultry take on Arcade Fire’s “My Body is a Cage,” which is currently available for download on iTunes. Cover Me Songs premiered the track, affirming, “The sparse cover showcases her effortlessly soulful singing.” Since then, Rose has shared the stage with a variety of notable artists, including: Ron Pope/Von Grey, Marc Cohn, Joan Osborne, John Waite, Lez Zeppelin, Crystal Bowersox, Howie Day, Teddy Geiger, Tony Lucca, Lee DeWyze, Tyler Hilton and founding member of Live, Ed Kowalczyk. The consummate artist, Rose lets her spirit shine through with every performance, while captivated fans hang on every note.
