"Love For Tornado Rose"

Tornado Rose is one of those bands you can’t miss in the folk scene. If you’ve ever been to Winfield, the Fiddling and Picking Championship, or any number of popular folk venues along the I-70 corridor this year, you’ve likely seen them play.

We finally caught up with the full band staggered across the stage at the Bottleneck over the weekend. Tornado Rose is right to keep so active in the scene. They’re charming, upbeat, and keep the toes tapping during their tunes (even the “slow” ones, if there is such a thing with that band). This is the type of music that’s completely encouraging, filled with optimistic vibes and scattered smiles. We don’t normally see such vigor out of an autoharp, so many kudos to Brooke Belle for pulling off a bouncy (and dare we say, rosy?) attitude out of the instrument.

Here’s “Wilderwood Flower,” a song they wrote for the Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase (and won) in 2014. - I Heart Local Music - Fally Alfani - January 19, 2016

"Tornado Rose: “Fireball Run” To be Released in mid-March!"

“Fireball Run is a tune that inspires the soul. This single is a must have for any true music enthusiast. Folksy, stylistic and innovative! The song is a beautifully crafted indie-folk rock track and packs a bunch of surprises, changing tones, and tempos 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. 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.” - Rick Jamm, (Feb 28, 2014)

"TORNADO ROSE: “Dust in my Shadow” Melody, Harmony and Groove are Keywords!"

“From the lyrics to the musicianship, top to bottom, Dust in my Shadow EP showcases honest craftsmanship by Tornado Rose. It’s one of the few albums in which the lyrics actually show true depth and life experiences, while the music is written and performed with soul and passion behind it. It’s one of those recordings that will be a ‘go to’ album in your collection, for years after you buy it. If you harken back to the days when music was something felt deep inside and musicians actually knew how to put a song together just by playing their instruments and not relying on pc’s and software to do the job, then you will really love this newest release from Tornado Rose. Melody, harmony and groove are the major keywords in a great mix of roots rock music, that’ll keep your toes tapping all the way through “Dust In My Shadow”.” - Rick Jamm, (Jun 26, 2013)

"New Release: Dust in my Shadow is hot"

“Tornado Rose has crafted a new sound unlike anything else coming out of the independent music scene. Dust in my Shadow EP is a wild ride with sick electric guitar riffs over hard driving bluegrass complimented by angelic vocals. Tornado Rose is an exceptional band with a distinctive new sound that needs to be on your radar.” - Stoney, (Jun 02, 2013)
