Black Rabbit premieres new music from Amanda Rose's new album "The Bearable Lightness Of Being " in preparation for Noise Pop this Friday in San Francisco.
AMANDA ROSE is one of our California rabbits. Based out of SF, we interviewed her last year about some of her current projects. This Friday she is playing Noise Pop.
Can you tell us about Noise Pop?
Noise Pop is a San Francisco Music Festival that celebrates independent artists from all over. This year is their 25th anniversary!
How you initially got involved with NP?
I played NP twice before in my previous project, "Running in the Fog" and opened for Dan Deacon and Natasha Kmeto. I was stoked to be invited to play again and will be playing under my name, 'Amanda Rose' for the first time.
What's your story regarding music,?
I studied jazz and theater in high school and through college and have been producing my own music for the last five years. I've self released a few singles, released an EP on SF's own Father/Daughter Records and another couple of singles on Unspeakable Records (a label in LA that promotes only female producers in the business) as "Running in the Fog". I'm finishing my first full length album under my own name, 'Amanda Rose', to be released later this year. This business has been tough on me. I've had some successes, tons of near misses, travel and fun, but the rest has been mainly heartbreak. I decided that with this new project, I'm not putting as much pressure on myself to be a "brand", or be cool enough, or be anything but true to myself. This album comes straight from myself; from love to loss, to finding inner peace and strength, to video games. This Friday 2/24 at the Hemlock Tavern I'll be supporting 'Teen Daze', and 'Mozart's Sister'.
With this interview, BR has exclusive Amanda Rose's first release off the album, "It's A Trap".
