Debut Album out now ? Everything I Need? Well.. My debut album has been released!
 
There are 12 original songs (10 of which I co wrote) and I?m so happy with the end result. My co writers include Brendan Radford, Michael Fix, Casey Watt, Drew McAlister and Allan Caswell. There is also a duet featuring Drew.
Most of it was recorded on the Central Coast with Jeff McCormack engineering and Brendan Radford producing and mixing done here in Brisbane by Geoff McGahan.
The first single ?Til I Find Me Again? (co written with Drew) was released on NfS 115 last week.

WA TourI?ve just returned from Perth (my home city) after a string of gigs with the Women?s Weekly Roadshow and an Album Launch last Sunday. The night was a great success and was joined on stage by Brendan Radford and Russell Prior as we performed most of the songs from the album acoustically. It was good to be back to visit and catch up with everyone.

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all well and have all had a good Easter break!
Debut Album
Over the last couple of months I have been doing a lot of writing on my own and with other incredibly talented songwriters in preparation for my debut album. Many of these new songs will feature on my album. The multi-talented Brendan Radford will also be producing. We have been in pre-production mode for the last month or so. I am really enjoying the process and am very excited.
We start recording early May and the first single and the completed album is scheduled to be released in the first week of July.

QUT Urban Country Music Festival
I will be performing at my first Urban Country Music Festival in Caboolture this year at the Songwriters Café on Saturday 5th May. It will be a great opportunity to 'road test' some of my new material from the album. I am really looking forward to it as I will be sharing the stage with 2 of my favorite songwriters (and good friends) Casey Watt and Brendan Radford. For more info go to www.urbancountry.com

Hi there,
Last week we returned from a fantastic Tamworth Festival.. Many gigs, interviews and fantastic country music!  I was so excited to be in the Starmaker finals.  It was a great experience and I learned so much from being part of it all.  We had a great time and made many new friends.  It was really good to catch up with other fellow muso?s and see them strut their stuff and finally meet in person too. 
I can't believe February is here already.  This month the songwriting will continue as we prepare for my forthcoming album.

Also, I just wanted to remind you that you can now request 'Whisper' on CMC : 
www.countrymusicchannel.com.au
You need to sign up, then go to ?requests?.  Then search by my name or song and then 'send request'. 
You can also request 'Whisper' on your local country music station too.  I really do appreciate the support.

Hi everyone,
I have been writing fairly solidly over the last couple of months in 
preparation for my first album scheduled to be recorded in the first 
half on 2007 with Brendan Radford producing.
It has been an awesome (and busy) time for me as I have had the 
opportunity to write again with Brendan.  I have also been writing 
with guitar virtuoso Michael Fix and participated in Allan Caswell?s 
songwriting workshop in Grafton in October.  I?m really enjoying my 
?songwriting journey?.

My second single ?Whisper? was released to radio in October on NfS 109 
to great response and support.  And has been added to the playlists of 
CMR Super Radio Network, KIXFM Regional Qld, 88.9 WYNFM, Saturday 
Night Country, Radio Eastern 98.1, 100.3 BAYFM, 91.1FM Whittlesea, 
2MCR, CBAA, 2QN, ValleyFM, 7 LTN, HuonFM, 4OURFM, ABC Wide Bay and 
98.9FM Brisbane.  Thankyou to everyone for your support and airplay-I 
really appreciate it!

The video clip for ?Whisper? (recorded at the Gympie Muster) is now 
showing on CMC.  Please request by logging on to 
www.countrymusicchannel.com.au
In February 2007, this clip will also be aired on Virgin Blue 
In-Flight Entertainment.

Thanks to Ron and Rosie Adsett from The Country Music Store in 
Brisbane, I have been invited to include ?Whisper? for downloading on 
Nokia Music Recommenders Site. www.musicrecommenders.com
Music Recommenders highlights cutting-edge new music from around the 
globe: featuring only the best new music each month as chosen by 40 of 
the most knowledgeable independent retailers from around the world.
The site is now live in the UK and the project has been officially 
announced, with major events held in New York, Manilla and Paris. An 
Australian site is due to launch later this year.

And just this week, I found out I am a Top 20 finalist for Toyota 
Starmaker 2007!!  I am really happy and excited!  It is a really 
impressive list of finalists this year so will be a fantastic 
experience.

Anyway, that?s about all for now.  If you?re in Tamworth I?ll see you there!

Wishing you all a very safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Rose :)

Hi Helen,  How are you?
Well, it certainly has been a busy couple of months. In between working on some
new material, and gigging it's all happening.

My first single "Freedom" has been released on NfS # 105 - Track 17 and has been
receiving a great response with many DJ's adding the song to their playlists.
www.nfspublicity.com.au
I am really enjoying the interviews and getting to know some of our radio
personalities across the country. The support has been fantastic.

I have also been selected as a finalist in the Recorded Section of the SEQ/TSA
Awards to be held on June 18, with current single "Freedom" and "Whisper" both
featured on my debut EP.

And I have been announced as an artist for this years 25th Anniversary Gympie
National Music Muster in August. It will be my first ever Muster so I am really
looking forward to it.

That's about all for now..until next time

Hi Helen,
How are you? Just thought I'd drop you a line and give you an update.

I have just returned from Perth ( my home town ) where I had a fantastic time
and a successful EP launch.  While the EP was launched in Brisbane and Tamworth
in January, it was time to take it to Perth.

We had a great crowd (200+ people) and had a fantastic night.  I caught up with
people I hadn't seen for quite a while..  The support from everyone including -
Brendon T Moylan @ 100.1 FM, Jule @ Twin Cities FM, Linda Rebello, Derek & Alan
@ Radio Fremantle, RTR FM, Groove & Xpress mags and Paul @ Hyde Park Hotel was
fantastic!
So am now back here in Brisbane preparing for some gigs.  I have some new
material written and will be writing again soon with Brendan.

Hope you have a fantastic Easter and hope the Easter Bunny is good to you!

Thanks
Rose Carleo

Quote from one of Australia's best guitarist Brendan Radford.

"Rose is a talented individual.  She has a powerful voice and an impressive
range.  Considering her talent and motivation, I'm sure we will be hearing a
lot more from Rose in the future".
 

My 4 song EP was completed in January - Produced by Brendan Radford.  WE also
co-wrote Track 4-Freedom.  Track 1-Whisper is the other original of mine.  I
had a few gigs at Tamworth and the EP went down a treat!
I will be in Perth (my home town) early April to launch the EP and
catch up with
everyone.


Much like the formation of her name sake, Rose Carleo has a vocal ability that is not only versatile and strong; it has a beauty unlike any other.

Striving to inspire and captivate people with her music, Rose Carleo has been involved in the professional music industry for over fifteen years. Rose is an accomplished performer on the stage and in the studio.

Originally from Western Australia, Rose started her music career working with artists such as Norma Kelly and Rick Steele in the vibrant Perth country music scene.

“I dare you!” Those three motivating words provided Rose the beginnings of her musical adventures. With the challenge given (as only a mother can!) Mary Carleo a well respected country music promoter from Perth, encouraged Rose to give her first performance of the classic song “Roll in my Sweet Baby’s Arms” at age thirteen.

This versatile artist also performed backing vocals for Jimmy Barnes during the release of his “Soul Deep” album in 2000 and her trio “Sweet Revenge” were the support for Vanessa Amorosi’s Perth performance during her 2000 tour.

Now calling Queensland her “home away from home”, Rose recently hit the studio to record her first EP “Rose Carleo” with producer Brendan Radford.
The combined talents and writing ability of Rose and Brendan have culminated in an outstanding production that has something for all music lovers to enjoy.

Pop, Rock, Country or Blues you name it, Rose Carleo can perform it. A combination of these styles contributes to the warm, colourful, romantic and distinctive tone that is the voice of Rose Carleo.

Now no longer the talent behind the talent, be prepared to witness Rose Carleo in full bloom.
