Rosie Thomas – Where Was I?
This free album from 2006 is from a mellow, talented and gentle-souled folk-pop singer named Rosie Thomas. Hey, she worked with Sufjan Stevens on this one and while it is not cutting-edge; it’s just plain good. Have your non-indie music loved ones listen to this as a gateway to the more experimental offerings at Heroes of Indie Music. Use the NoiseTrade link below to download. She has a new album out next month and “Where Was I” will be on this 2012 release.
One night in suburban Detroit, a twelve-year-old Rosie Thomas lay sleepless in her bed, obsessively dwelling on what she perceived to be her lack of life purpose. Then, well after 2 AM, it suddenly hit her. She sprung out of bed and raced down the hall. “Daddy, Daddy, I know what my mission in life is,” Rosie exclaimed, poking her father. “I just want to entertain people.” After 3 albums on Sub Pop, These Friends of Mine was release through her own lable, Sing-A-Long Records. The album includes appearances by friends Sufjan Stevens, Damien Jurado, David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), and Denison Witmer. On February 14, 2012, Rosie will release her first full-length record in four years, With Love. Thomas makes her return to the studio with a band featuring David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Blake Wescott (Damien Jurado), brother Brian Thomas, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Jenn Wood (The Postal Service).
