Sounds | Maggie Rose - No One Gets Out Alive

Maggie Rose kan je niet zomaar een genre opplakken. Na eerder de soul/blues/gospel toer op te gaan, hoor ik hier een pakkende, tijdloze popsong met een groots (strijker) arrangement en wat rockinvloeden. De titelsong van haar nieuwe album begint wel rustig: piano, stem ... maar al snel merk je dat alles geleidelijk aan zal openbreken. Maggie neemt haar tijd alvorens ze alle registers open trekt in een grandioze finale.

No One Gets Out Alive verschijnt op 5 april via Big Loud Records

“No One Gets Out Alive” was co-written by Rose, Natalie Hemby (The Highwomen) and recording artist Sunny Sweeney. Delivering a mesmerizing performance, Maggie's authenticity and vocal prowess are on full display. The song relays a universal message of learning to live life in the moment. The striking music video, directed by Nicki Fletcher and Mason Allen, reflects the song's meaningful lyrical sentiment, and sees Rose intercut with vignettes of characters each reflecting on their own life's journey.


Rose explains, “'No One Gets Out Alive' as a title sounds ominous on its own, but the song isn't hopeless at all. So many events have reminded me that time isn't guaranteed, and that I'm right where I need to be. I want people to hear the urgency in the song and stop dwelling on what they're missing out on- the present is all you have, so make the most of it.”


“Mad Love” co-written by Rose, Jordan Leigh Meredith (Sad Penny) and K.S. Rhoads spotlights Maggie's spell-binding vibrato. The torchy showstopper features Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit member Sadler Vaden on guitar, playing echo-drenched spaghetti western licks, along with haunting guest vocals by John Paul White (The Civil Wars).


Refusing to be pigeonholed in any one genre, Maggie Rose comfortably straddles genres spanning rock, soul, Americana, folk, and funk, as evidenced by her appearing at varied marquee festivals such as Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and Newport Folk Fest. Her previous releases were embraced by the likes of Rolling Stone who declared she's a “star” and NPR Music who called her a “multi-genre powerhouse.” A true road warrior, she has shared the stage with an impressive array of artists including Kelly Clarkson, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Heart, Joan Jett, Eric Church, Gov't Mule, The Mavericks, Fitz & The Tantrums, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, and The Revivalists to name a few.
