Philadelphia-based musician Rosali 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 vocalisations, 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’s close friends, including Charlie Hall (War on Drugs), Paul Sukeena (Angel Olsen), Mary Lattimore, Mike Polizze (Purling Hiss), Nathan Bowles (Steve Gunn, Black Twig Pickers) and Dan Provenzano (Purling Hiss, Writhing Squares), add a dynamic and energetic live band sound. The resulting record is an evocative and multilayered collection, moving from psych jammer 'Rise to Fall' to the stripped down folk rock of 'Silver Eyes,' and propulsive pop-infused tracks like 'I Wanna Know' and 'Lie to Me' Recorded at Uniform Recording, Rosali co-produced Trouble Anyway with Jeff Zeigler, to get the sounds she was after.
