In June, Rose Spearman had her first appearance on MangoWave. Click here to read the review on the Nigel Lowis Soul Mix of 'After the Summer falls'. The new single 'After the Renaissance comes the Blues' is a modern romance parcelled in soulful and emotional music. Dutch-American musician Rose Spearman tells the story of two lovers who are separated by social boundaries. Their love is getting hindered by their social status, and by their ethnicity - and in the time that story is set in, such an affair was actually illegal. It is a song about the power of love that can break barriers, and a song about obstacles to freedom.
Jazz, Blues, and Soul merge in 'After the Renaissance comes the Blues' and create an image of a dark Harlem bar where nighthawks and working folk meet and enjoy a rollicking night. Rose Spearman uses plenty of elements from early 20th century music and transfers it to contemporary times. With her stunning Soul voice, the musician tells a story of pre-Civil-Rights-Movement times - but a story that could still occur in our times.
