Red Rose

Rock Roots


This is not a story, not a diversion nor an op-ed piece. Standing on the edge of where we want to be, looking over the precipice. (Live Love Loud, ©)

Precipice indeed! After months of recording and with a full-length album about to be released, Winnipeg Rock band "Red Rose" is exactly where they want to be. Led by singer/songwriter and lead guitarist Tim Braun and fronted by vocalist Marianne Rose, the band includes Dan Proctor on guitar/piano, Earl Bargen on bass, and Bill Peters on drums. Firmly entrenched in Manitoba's tradition of organic rock music, Red Rose has developed a full repertoire of thought-provoking original songs, with influences of classic rock, folk, country,... maybe even a little jazz. They've thrown in a sprinkling of covers as well, including the songs of Alabama Shakes, The Police, U2, and even Led Zepplin - songs they all love and enjoy playing, just for the fun of it!

Ghosts of scandals with their roots withered. Ghosts of buffalo, solitary ghosts of pioneers, promises built and left to rust. (Prevailing Westerlies, ©) The members of Red Rose, perhaps in hibernative collaboration over a harsh Winter, have forged an undeniable musical identity - reflecting the depth and breadth of soulful prairie life, and celebrating the simple joy of survival through Spring.

Waiting here for warmth of sun. Take me from the snow — There is the water that flows, Diamonds above shielding true wealth below. (Frozen River, ©)
