Ezza Rose Band Album Release Concert at The Historic Old Church, Saturday, March 1 at 8:00pm. ALL AGES SHOW!

Ezza Rose Poolside

Ezza Rose Band CD Release Concert,
with opening artist Rebecca Miller of the Mynabirds.

Ezza Rose rolled into Portland, Oregon fresh off graduating the American Music and Dance Academy in 2007. Drawing on the traditional folk sounds she absorbed in the small Southern California mining town she grew up in, Rose began writing and performing at open mics throughout Portland. With pipes that critics have dubbed “subtle, yet breathtaking”, an undeniable natural electricity, and a unique style that is a little bluegrass, a little folk, and a little something entirely her own, Rose caught the ears and eyes of anyone who saw her perform. It wasn’t long until Rose was hard at work singing in a handful of Portland’s emerging musical acts as well as piecing together a band of her own.


“There’s the unaffected, Western-town hymns of Ezza Rose, fresh off an opening slot for the legendary Loudon Wainwright III. Driven by her subtle but breathtaking voice, Rose’s upcoming sophomore album is among 2011′s most anticipated local releases.” – Portland Mercury 

“Sometimes folk, sometimes bluegrass, but frequently roots-based, the music was augmented by tight harmonies and stringed instruments…in a way that showed this group to be one to watch.” – Melophobe

“Ezza’s music is filled with honesty, heart, and musical prowess that some musicians search their whole musical careers to find. With only two independent releases under her belt, she seems to have the polished craftsmanship of someone who has been playing the stage for 20 years.” – Boy Meets Music 

“I was honestly floored by the performance. A crystal clear voice, a charming ukulele….Start by listening to 2%. If you like Basia Bulat, you’ll love Ezza Rose.” – Frolic

Doors at 7:30pm.

Tickets $10  at the door or through BrownPaperTickets

This is an All  Ages Show.

Wine and Beer with valid I.D.
