Biography

“Haroula Rose sings with the spirit of a gypsy soul, always searching for meaning or a seed of truth in each fleeting moment. Her voice is at once intimate and solacing, its gentle inflections betraying a subtle, plaintive sway that enriches moments of guitar-driven folk with the pathos of classic country.”
—No Depression

“Chicago-bred, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Haroula Rose’s self-released “These Open Roads” is a deceptively easy-on-the-ears debut that launches Rose as a triple threat: a deft and resourceful melodicist, a subtly superb acoustic guitar crafter and a distinctly winsome vocal presence.”

—LA Weekly

“Highly textured, melodic, lovely, graceful. Rose picked the right company to realize this highly textured collection that explores a few different moods, though always at a tender remove.”
—LA Times

“Each song on the album is a journey, be it big or small, and demonstrates a finely honed skill for telling stories. There’s a joy to be found here, one that leaves an anticipation of what direction Rose will take next. Whichever road she travels from here, her future looks rosy.”
—Wears the Trousers Magazine

“These Open Roads displays one small wonder after another”
—Big Takeover

Haroula Rose grew up in Lincolnwood, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. She got her first instrument, the violin, at age 8. She could always sing and was involved in musical theater, choirs, a capella groups and bands. As a teenager she was drawn to the music of, among others, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez, inspiring her to pick up the guitar and start writing her own songs.
