Philadelphia-based musician Rosali’s wrote the songs for her second solo album, Trouble Anyway, during a time of personal upheaval and transition. Using her songwriting practice as personal catharsis, she spent many late nights seeking empowerment through expression. The result is at once hard and soft, vulnerable and powerful: emotional narratives developed through exploration. Rosali’s experience in music has been wide-ranging, from Michigan grange-hall folk music gatherings in her childhood, to abstract experimental improvisation, to bad bitch rock. It all shows in her powerfully sensitive vocal style-- the warm tone, intuitive wordless vocalizations, and layered harmonies that create the enveloping, summery sound central to Trouble Anyway. Rosali’s vibrant vocals present a striking focal point for the record, as her rhythmic strumming, finger picking, droning, and riffing-- resonating from her acoustic, electric, and Nashville-tuned guitars-- underpin the music. Alternating between driving and laid back, her guitar playing runs the spectrum from hypnotic repetitions to catchy melodic hooks.
Rosali talked mood and vibe with her band, but also trusted the right sounds to unfold in the moment. It is this balance of gut-feeling improvisation and careful composition that makes her sophomore release feel powerfully alive. Flexing her own musical process for self work and personal renewal, Rosali’s Trouble Anyway offers listeners an inviting entry point to explore their own wild inner landscape.
