With his rich baritone vocal and hopeful melodies, Los Angeles-native, David Rosales, comes from a place of deep content and shining optimism in his debut album, Brave Ones, released on April 27th, 2018.
Drawing on the wide-open spaces of the Southwest and the smooth textures of the Pacific Ocean, David Rosales & His Band of Scoundrels seamlessly weave an alluring landscape of American roots music when translating the album in a live setting. A sound that pairs well with contemporaries they have shared the stage with in Ben Harper, Matt Costa, The White Buffalo, Donavon Frankenreiter and Steep Canyon Rangers.
It’s impossible to deny the warmth and ease of Rosales’ songwriting prowess throughout the 11 tracks as he seamlessly blends his vintage sonic tastes with fresh vision. Crediting his love of classic Rhythm & Blues and Country & Western singers Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, coupled with his admiration for modern day troubadours the likes of Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, Nathaniel Rateliff and Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) as being influential in the writing and recording process.
