Anna Rose “Pray To The Trees” – you follow your path, I’ll follow mine

Everything is a journey these days, are we right?  And this song is no exception – starting out in a questioning and searching folk mode it hits an emotional turmoil encapsulated in a grinding rock section and taps out on a folky coda that rejects the responsibility to save another from their doubts and fears with the plea to find some inner strength “I’m not your saviour, you are your own.

Pray to the Trees’ is taken from Anna Rose’s mostly self-penned new album ‘Last Girl Of The Rodeo‘ which was released last Friday.  It finds Anna Rose exploring new musical directions, as well as incorporating the folk and alt-country she’s perhaps best known for.  It’s allowed Anna Rose to tell a personal story penned as she explains “I started examining the idea of integrity—living with integrity and working with integrity, finding where thoughts and words meet actions. I stripped back the layers of my ego which led me to a place where I could make a really truthful record, away from the paradigms that I’d been steered toward in the past. This is the record you make when you have nothing left to lose.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
