Tornado Rose is a band of talented, versatile musicians based out of Wichita, Kansas. Brooke Bell: Vocals, acoustic guitar, fiddle and autoharp, Clint Dayhuff: Electric and acoustic guitar, Josh Bell: Electric and upright bass, banjo, Ted Myers: Drums and percussion are intensely devoted to a full Parthenon of musical influences.
Their sound captures aspects of Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, Blues, Red Dirt, Funk and Soul for a reverberant mix of substance and surprise. From melodic electric guitar riffs to the sweet sensibilities of an old time string band, they offer fresh homage to the evolutionary nature of music at every turn and transform a wide spectrum of inspiration into pure musical fusion.
The band recently performed at the renowned Walnut Valley Music Fest where they were asked by the festival organizers to return next year to perform on Saturday night as part of the ‘Stage 5 Picks.’
Some months ago we featured their album, “Dust In My Shadow” and found that “Melody, harmony and groove were the major keywords in a great mix of roots rock music, able to keep your toes tapping all the way through.” Now Tornado Rose is set to release their brand new single, “Fireball Run” on the 4th of March and we were delivered a preview copy for the occasion. The song will also be streaming live at www.tornadorose.com/Tunes.html from Monday March 3.
The song is a beautifully crafted indie-folk rock track and packs a bunch of surprises, changing tones, and tempos in mid-song. It qualifies as a rare breed of record – the one you put on and you’re never tempted to stop in mid-song.
The whole thing flows so beautifully. The lyrics, instrumentals and the harmony of it all continue to make Tornado Rose an epic band that has much more to give to the music community. Theirs is music that soothes and makes you bounce in your seat at times. It is both easily appealing and deeper as you spend more time listening.
If you’ve already discovered great bands like Mumford and Sons, the Avett Brothers, Augustana, The Lumineers and the Civil Wars, then add to that list Tornado Rose.
“Fireball Run” is a tune that inspires the soul. This single is a must have for any true music enthusiast. Folksy, stylistic and innovative!
