Rose n' Thorne
Rose n' Thorne are husband and wife entertainers who teamed up 20 years ago in upstate New York. She was the lead singer of a popular local band and a winner of several vocal contests with radio stations, presenting her with the opportunity to open concerts for artists like Shania Twain and Benny Mardones.
Deciding to head to California to pursue a singing career, she went to a songwriter's circle in Syracuse, searching for original songs to record. That is where she met Thorne, and after hearing his original songs, she approached him with the idea of co-writing or recording some of his songs. She hadn't known that he had had a long career of performing and recording himself.
Thorne had toured all across the county, performing at colleges and clubs and opening for shows for artists like Melissa Manchester, Livingston Taylor, Al Jarreau, and Eric Burden. He also has two Cds released and a few local singles hits.
The two moved to Nashville in 2001 on the promise of getting songs published and recorded. When that never came to fruition, they moved to Lakeland, Florida to be near family, took on "real" jobs, and left music behind for 15 years.
In 2016, they went to an open night mic night, played four songs, and were asked to play immediately the following weekend. That was the opening of the floodgates, and now they perform from The Villages to Ft. Myers, from Bradenton to Winter Haven.
The combination of one of the finest female voices you;l ever hear, singing Rondstadt, Mitchell, and Jones (Nora and Rickie Lee) and playing percussion, along with a great male singer doing Beatles, Young, Taylor, and Clapton with intricate and expressive guitar, piano, and harmonica work. All make for a great evening.
Oh yeah, they're a bit crazy as well, so expect a good laugh and an improvisational attempt at song requests. Great music and fun to be had by all!
