Following the release of the infinitely catchy “Breakfast for Dinner Tonight” , Rosie Smith is back with the ska tinged “Dirty Harry”
“When growing up my dad would try to introduce me to what he called his ‘film classics’ , one of them being ‘Dirty Harry’ and several other Eastwood movies.
“Did I fire 6 or was it only 5…” This famous speech from the movie was ingrained in my head and inspired the song ‘Dirty Harry’” says Rosie
Dirty Harry is the second single from Rosie’s forthcoming debut album. A version of this track featured on the acoustic EP NW8 2 which originally brought her to the notice of her record label.
ROSIE first established her prodigious talent when she opened for the pop band Lawson on their UK winter tour, culminating on 6th November at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.
Connecting with her audiences on the 9-day tour, the multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter drew plaudits for her strong vocals and her beautifully pertinent lyrics.
Just a few months on and now signed to Lastman Music label X&Y Records, ROSIE SMITH is making her mark and her single Breakfast for Dinner Tonight secured her first ever TV performance on GB News in March.
ROSIE, also a talented actress, who once appeared with David Tenant and Olivia Coleman in Broadchurch, is influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Lumineers, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, John Denver and Mumford and Sons and has been described as ‘An extremely talented singer-songwriter and an exceptionally gifted lyricist who writes beautifully pertinent songs that express purpose, intent and meaning.”
Of her music ROSIE says: “I play the guitar, piano, drums and a little bass and trumpet. I love finding obscure ways to play chords and melodic patterns and I am fascinated by harmonies. I would describe my music style as storytelling in a commercial way. I use the folk genre narratives and place them into an up-tempo pop genre, so I guess it’s folky pop with a twist!
“In part because of my own life experiences, my music is intended to be a kind of self-help guide for other young adults struggling with love, friendship, upheaval, and grief.”
Aside from the release of the new single “Dirty Harry”and her imminent new album, ROSIE SMITH will be back on the road this year and appearing at various festivals throughout the summer and will also be the special guest of Ronan Keating on the Norwich date of his upcoming UK tour: Norwich Theatre July 6th, 2022
