Rose’s Pawn Shop are a swirling vortex of rock and roots music from Los Angeles. The band releases their new album, Gravity Well, on September 9th. Blending bluegrass and folk with rock and alt-country, Rose’s debuted in 2006. While frontman Paul Givant leads the five piece through various musical styles on the new album, those styles – and influences – coalesce nicely into a unified voice on their songs. There’s a lot of very talented bands performing a similar kind of music as Rose’s Pawn Shop, yet this highly charged band manage to create their own unique sound, in large part due to the craftiness of the songwriting, their storytelling and the musical virtuosity.
