Biography

On the heels of his most recent album, Subtitulo, Josh Rouse forms a new side project featuring artist Paz Suay under the name She’s Spanish, I’m American.

The five-song self titled EP features several duets together. “I thought it would be fun to do something with Paz cuz I like her voice, I like female singers with accents and I had some songs I thought she would sound good on. We both like to come up with cover images so it seemed like a perfect reason to start a project.” Rouse stated.

The first single off She’s Spanish, I’m American is “Car Crash”, a song based off the couple’s experiences bouncing around NYC in a taxicab. Paz elaborates: “Each time we go to NYC we get really frightened about how fast some of the taxi drivers go, and it’s like, ‘OK, I wanna live longer!’ We’d like to make a video of this, and I’m sure we’ll wear our seat belts!!!”

The initial recordings were done in their apartment in Valencia this summer, upon returning from several months of touring in support of Subtitulo; Paz mentions that after “spending some time on the road during the last US tour was a great and fun experience. So, when Josh came up with the idea of doing something else together, as a collaboration, it sounded very good to me.” They sent several tracks back to their friend in Nashville, Daniel Tashian (who has written and played in Josh’s band in the past) to add some finishing touches.

Josh is also currently working on his follow up to Subtitulo (to be released later next year) and is also preparing a career retrospective to be released on Rhino/Warner Brothers next year as well.
