A sound that pairs well with contemporaries they have shared the stage with in Ben Harper, Brandi Carlile, Matt Costa, The White Buffalo, Donavon Frankenreiter and Steep Canyon Rangers.
In his acclaimed 2018 full-length debut album, BRAVE ONES, Rosales showcases his songwriting prowess throughout the 11 tracks as he seamlessly blends his vintage sonic tastes with fresh vision.
Crediting his love of classic Rhythm & Blues and Country singers Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, coupled with his admiration for modern day troubadours as being influential in the writing and recording process.
Looking for a change in scenery, Rosales and co-producer, Matt Grundy, recorded at Super Bloom Studios — a log cabin studio that rests on the edge of the wind-swept expanse known as the Mojave Desert in the shadow of Southern California’s Mount San Antonio. The duo thrived in this remote location, which became an unequivocal inspiration for the recording sessions.
Rosales co-founded the Orange County, CA based BraveOnes Foundation – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness and resources that allow children in need to focus on the joys of being a child.
