ROSIE Shares New Single “Something I Hate”
“Something I Hate” is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about trying to overcome lifelong insecurities. ROSIE elaborates on the powerful meaning behind the song: “Creating ‘Something I Hate’ was such a painful yet cathartic experience for me. I’ve always tried to write about what scares me, but speaking on such deep-rooted insecurities such as body dysmorphia and eating disorders was truly terrifying. I hope this song reaches every single person who needs to hear it and that it helps to heal others the way creating it has healed me.”

Andrew Duhon Paints A Picture Of Love And Adventure With “Emerald Blue”
New Orleans, LA – For an artist who grew up, in his words, “beside the turbulent, chocolate milk of the mouth of the Mississippi,” it’s no wonder that Andrew Duhon was so awestricken by his time exploring the Pacific Northwest over the past few years. But it was when Duhon connected the shades of his unfamiliar surroundings with the depth of color in his partner’s eyes that sparked the writing of “Emerald Blue,” the title track of his upcoming album. “She’s the one I’d go up to visit while she worked in rural Washington state,” says Duhon. “Our travels around the area introduced me to this song and to her and to that intangible nuance of two shades mixing together to create something new and beautiful.” A galloping acoustic guitar pattern gives way to an easygoing feel and then the opening verse of “Emerald Blue,” where Duhon begins to paint his hues, singing, “Logging roads in the Washington mountains / Far cry from the Southland / Far cry from the muddy water I always knew / Emerald blue.”
