SWEETWATER ROSE is a group of two incredibly talented singers and songwriters located in Nashville. Each have their own beautiful unique voice, but it is their chemistry together that really makes magic. The members of the group are: Marna Taylor, Kim Beasley Collins. The band is a six or seven piece band-this combination can rock the audience or stun them with intimate ballads. Danny Kadar (who mixed My Morning Jacket, Avett Brothers, Band of Horses) also worked on this called "Spirit Horse" which has a release date of late June 2013.
Their beautiful harmonies and melodies will take you back to the 60’s , but with a very southern jam edge of freshness that reaches into a new realm of sound. They have been tagged the “Country Music Sirens”, from one particular song on the CD, “Dyin to Feel Alive”, that they wrote together for this project (650,000 views on youtube). As their new fanbase grows, they have been compared to: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Little Feat, Poco, a little Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt, and finally vintage and edgy. “We could not ask for better compliments”. The legendary Mac Gayden performs slide guitar with this group (JJ Cale, Dylan, Hiatt, Barefoot Jerry).
They have been in the House of Blues Studio, Studio 19, and most recent at the Gayden Farm to record and Coat of Arms Studio. “We keep growing together and changing and wanted to reflect all that in the new songs that we are writing together. Mac Gayden is producing and his influence is definitely in the mix, we are very happy with the results. A little rock edge, a little of Mac’s Barefoot Jerry days thrown in, and country as we know it to be. The musicians are all great: Brad Pemberton, Sam Bush, Dan Dugmore, Pete Finney, Steve Latanation, Byron House, Mac Gayden, Scott Vestal. Thanks to all of you guys!
We are starting a new tour soon with new songs and new look, hope you enjoy - we are rocking our roots now in the new cd "Spirit Horse" June 2013 release date. Sweetwater Rose has been included in many fashion music events because of their style and music. Of their show at the Sondheim Center many in the audience said "it was the best and most visually stimulating concerts they had seen there."
