Anna Rose at Port City Music Hall

I had a chance to speak with rock songstress Anna Rose on The Knix Mix prior to her opening for former Live lead singer, Ed Kowalczyk, at Port City Music Hall on March 23rd.  Anna is touring in support of her sophomore album Behold a Pale Horse.  Anna's name may be sweet, but the New York based performer is a self described "old soul," and she channels the edgier blues tinged rock sound of a Janis Joplin or Stevie Nicks.  Anna worked with producer Kevin Salem on the album, and she credits him with helping her to grow as a songwriter.  Of the eleven songs she wrote or co-wrote for the album, her 5 year stint in Los Angeles and subsequent return to New York influenced a number of them' including "Los Angeles" and "Beautiful World."  Anna likens the title track, "Behold a Pale Horse," to the legacy one leaves behind.  And Anna hopes that Behold a Pale Horse is a real and authentic representation of the kind of rock music she wants to leave as her musical legacy.
