Rising country artist Whitney Rose is preparing to release her third full-length studio album titled "Rule 62" on October 6 through Six Shooter Records/Thirty Tigers. The new release features 11-tracks of classic country that will open your eyes and ears to this brand of music. She starts out with the gentle country swing of "I Don't Want Half (I Just Want Out)," which will have you instantly fall in love with Whitney's voice. The tempo picks up with the nostalgic feel of "Arizona" and then brings back the sound of the sixties girl groups with "Better To My Baby." Her vocals are so warm and inviting on the ballad "You Never Cross My Mind" and her stellar band provides the perfect basis for Whitney to shine in the spotlight of "You Don't Scare Me" and "Tied To The Wheel." She finishes her new album with the country blues of "Wake Me In Wyoming" and the electrifying rocker "Time To Cry."

American singer/songwriter Eilen Jewell takes a break from songwriting
to deliver a blues album for the ages with "Down Hearted Blues." It
features a dozen blues treasures from artists like Otis Rush, Howlin'
Wolf and Memphis Minnie that Jewell re-creates in her own brand of
country/folk blues. She begins her new release with the steady pace of
"It's Your Voodoo Working" and the slower, classic blues of "Another
Night To Cry" as Eilen's voice fits this genre of music perfectly. She
picks the tempo back up with the Willie Dixon jewel "You'll Be Mine"
and Betty James' "I'm A Little Mixed Up." Eilen made it a point to
feature songs from the women of blues like Memphis Minnie ("Nothing In
Rambling") and "Big" Maybelle Smith ("Don't Leave Poor Me") as she
reminds us of these buried treasures. She finishes her new album with
the jazz tones of "Crazy Mixed Up World" and the acoustic blues of "The
Poor Girl's Story." Eilen Jewell is currently touring around New
England, before heading over to Europe in November. For a complete list

From the San Fransisco Bay area comes the latest release titled "In My Room" from
singer/songwriter Karen Atkins. After her rising fame from her health
aspects, Karen was constantly asked about her early years as a musician,
so she decided to surround herself with some of the finest session
musicians and create this new inspirational album. Her new 10-song release
begins with the up-tempo, contemporary rock groove of "Love Is Love" and
the quieter folk presentation of "Draw The Line." She tells us the
story of "Julian," before getting a little funky with the bass groove of
"Can't Get." Her new release finishes with the gentle touch of "In My
Room" and a beautiful rendition of Paul Simon's "Slip Slidin' Away." To find out more about the musical side of Karen Atkins and her new album, "In My Room," please visit karenatkinsmusic.com.
