Rosie Carney is a young British singer- songwriter originally from Hampshire. She has performed in a number of venues in Belfast, Dublin, London, New York and Los Angeles and also performed in St James’s Church for Irelands highly acclaimed Other Voices in 2013. She was recently selected to showcase her music at one of the worlds biggest music festivals SXSW. We already shared “Better Man”; “Awake Me” is the new track. Listen below.
It’s a song about coming into life, and Rosie’s lyrics have a confessional ring to them: “I’ve been a fool for more than half of my life / I’ve tried to hide” she sings with disarming honesty. The rich images she conjures are reminiscent of Joanna Newsom’s literary flights of fancy as she evokes a world of disorder and illusion.
