Produced by Sophie Payten (AKA Gordi), engineered and mixed by Jono Steer (Angie McMahon, Ainslie Wills), and mastered by Aria Award Nominated engineer, Becki Whitton (Alice Skye, All Day), Winning the Lottery is the first release from Rose under her own self-titled project. Written in the aftermath of her first panic attack, Winning the Lottery dives listeners headfirst into the singular actions and thoughts Rose undertook as she worked to understand the upheaval taking hold of her body. Without pulling her punches, Rose shakes loose her discomfort towards her own mental health, rejecting perfectionism in all its forms.
As an artist, Rose has worked hard to curate a sound reflective of her musical upbringing and love of lyrical expression. Heavily influenced by her background in jazz vocal training and Australian folk, Rose’s powerful, striking voice is a defining feature, demonstrating versatility in style, tone, and range across her music. Originally from Benalla in rural Victoria before making the move to Melbourne, Rose draws inspiration from moments hiking, taking solace in simple actions in larger-than-life settings.
Rose will be joined by Melbourne artists Bec Goring and GUTHRIE to celebrate the release.
Eora / Sydney-based musician, visual artist and designer Annie Hamilton will be performing an intimate and immersive live show to launch her long-awaited debut album, the future is here but it feels kinda like the past, out May 20. Rejecting straight-forward narrative structure in favour of pinning down hyper-specific yet universally empathetic moments, the future is here but it feels kinda like the past is a stylised-yet-grainy collage of snapshots that span a mammoth range of emotion, sound and genre, but are tied together as documentation of little human moments, full of contradiction and duality, reality as metaphor and metaphor as reality, stumbling through life and trying to make some kind of beautiful, fleeting sense of it.
