Rosedale – Wide Awake
Releasedate: November 2nd, 2018
A rock-blues band second album whose sky rocketing career is explained by the outstanding vocal abilities of Amandyn Roses, her symbiotic collusion with Charlie Fabert’s magical guitar expertise and the modernity of their musical universe. Powerful, electric, strong music with dashes of great tenderness.
Rosedaleis a rock and blues band formed in 2016 by singer Amandyn Roses and guitar player/songwriter Charlie Fabert, longtime guitarist of Fred Chapellier, but who also toured with Paul Cox, Janet Robin, Dave White... Together they revisit American roots music with a fresh and interesting approach.
Rosedale’s emotional mix of classic and modern influences paired with a devoted social media following has seen the band’s popularity skyrocket in just a few months.
Their previous (and first) record “Long way To Go” (mixed in Nashville by John Rausch, who recorded recordings such as Pink, Birdy, Beth Hart or Taylor Swift) has received a warm welcome in France and in part of Europe.
Listen to this new album: The alchemy is perfect, the voice of Amandyn pierces the mix and literally overthrows us, the guitars (many) respond like an echo while weaving a wide soundscape, the keyboards bring the scale, and the solid and energetic rhythmic advance like a steamroller. Few “made in France” groups have experienced such an astonishing rise and notoriety. Rosedale has managed to force its destiny by winning not only as the big revelation of the year 2017 in the country, but also as one of the most successful groups in Live.

Charlie Fabert became a guitar addict when he was 13 years old after listening to Led Zep’s “Stairway to Heaven”. He exchanged all his toys against a 75 € unnamed Les Paul guitar copy and spent the following two years practicing the instrument 8 hours a day. The Charlie Fabert Blues Band was formed In 2005 and Charlie played with luminaries such as Joe Gooch (Ten Years After - 2003-2014), Kate Cassidy, Aziz Sahmaoui (ex- Joe Zawinul Syndicate), Sally Strawberry and especially Paul Cox with whom he recorded the album “That’s What We Were Born For”. Later on, Charlie also collaborated with Roger Cotton (keyboards for Peter Green), Alan Glen (guitarist with The Yardbirds and Docteur Feelgood), Micky Moody (Whitesnake), Bobby Tench (singer with the Jeff Beck Group) and Bill Hurley (The Inmates). In 2012, he is selected to take part in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee with his friend the guitar wizard Fred Chapellier. Then, Charlie created Rosedale in 2016 with Amandyn and he’s happy today to introduce you to their brand new baby !
