Upon listening most people would compare this band to contemporaries like The Felice or The Avett Brothers, yet The Rosewood Thieves are of the talent where they deserve their own recognition.  The lead singer is blessed with a voice that sounds like the child of Bob Dylan and John Lennon, raspy, nasally but ultimately tuneful, and the lyrical narrative of a woman doing wrong is full of quite fantastic imagery (the title should be a hint). Its a sight for the ears to see, It’s a warm invitation into the singer’s life, a bar type atmosphere and a timeless progression that sticks to your head the moment you hear it.  If you like it head on over to Art of the Mixtape to download the thing.
