Country music meets rock and pop
KT Rose & The Wild Thorns
I’m with her and she’s with me, and together her and I are simply we..’
For the best part of the last decade Talia Simone and Kelly Lee worked hard to cement their musical roots in the U.K. country scene.
Back when Country wasn’t cool the couple decided that they were tired of being force fed ideas of who they should be, why they should sing and what they should write. Never shy to stand up for themselves the girls began to pen hours worth of material for their debut Album, one that would gain them a little notoriety but it also helped them gain a following of loyal supporters who they are happy to still call them friends today!!
Together the conquered their fears and collected awards and received nominations; played bars, clubs and honkytonks (and even played the Nashville Palace); they stood tall on international stages at showcases and even represented the U.K. at the kickoff of CMA fest.
Then came the break…after such highs came the lows, the predators, the sharks, the manipulators and the assholes.
And what started out being all about the music quickly became a toxic environment, so the girls decided to take a break and focus on themselves; their writing and a little bit of personal development.
In this time new babies were welcomed, degrees were earned, memories were made and lives were lived to the fullest, and through all of this they remained the best of friends.
And it was on one of their Thelma and Louise style adventures (Loretta Lynns birthday bash in Nashville TN) where the girls remembered why they began writing together all those years ago…
And after nearly 10 years and a lot of psychoanalysing they are finally happy and confident with themselves and the music they create, now able to follow their own arrows away from the crowds, making music for themselves and those who are like them, as they prepare for the release of their new RetroTwang CountryCool musical material they welcome you all aboard for the ride.
Join the adventures of K.T Rose and jump on, buckle up and who knows where this will take us!!!
