Show Announcement - Cavalier Rose - 12/9/09 - Howler's Cafe - Show Preview

Cavalier Rose will be playing at Howler's Cafe on 12/9. Doors are at 8p and Cavalier Rose is scheduled at 9:30p. This is an up and coming band based out of NYC in the Brooklyn area. They have been together a little over 6 months and have one ep to their name along with some demos. They are a 4 piece made up of 2 female members(on drums and lead vocals, keyboard) plus guitar and bass.

"Lie To Me"

They play a bluesy rock marked by lead singer's Heather Christian distinctive vocals. From their bio:

The daughter of a blues musician and a dancer, Heather grew up in Southern Mississippi and moved to New York to study music and theater at NYU. She was now singing and playing piano around the city. While her music was of a different attitude and style than the music they were currently creating, Gibbs Drinon (guitar) and Chase McGowan (bass) immediately heard hers as the voice of Cavalier Rose. They contacted her later that night and included a link to the demos they had recorded in Sarah’s basement several weeks earlier.

With Dave’s help, the band self-produced and mixed Primary Colors, the 6-song EP they recorded at his farm. Primary Colors was made available for free on Thursday, May 28th via the band’s website. That night, they played their second ever show (again, to a packed house at Pianos) in support of the EP’s release. All 150 copies of the EP they pressed were gone by the end of the gig. Two weeks later, Cavalier Rose was named "NYC Artist of the Month" by The Deli Magazine.

"Painted Bird"
