|Wild Rose has been
rockin' for over a decade. The original idea was sprung
in 2004 by Andy Rock. A lot of soul-searching was required
initially, as it was essential to find a suitable line up
to harness the stylish and polished mellow sound of a quality
A.O.R. band. Finally, after two years and several line up
changes Wild Rose settled on the line up today, introduced
to an unsuspecting public back in 2006, with quality songs
composed by Andy Rock. 2007 Wild Rose released their first
promo single CD entitled "It's All About Love"
which contained the hard hitting title track and "Too
Late", tracks that rapidly became accepted and loved
by the A.O.R. audience. During the same period Wild Rose
were picked up as support on Talisman's Farewell Tour in
Hellas. Wild Rose returned in mid
2009 and recorded a 10 track demo CD with tracks written
by Andy Rock and Dirty Haris. These songs matured through
the rehearsal process and ended up in professionally recorded
versions on the band's debut album "Half Past Midnight"
which was finally released on 10 October 2011 on the "Retrospect
Records" label and received great results in the A.O.R.
specialized press. The band also performed two successful
live shows in Athens and Thessaloniki to support "Half
Past Midnight" and also participated in "Rosewood
Festival" and received a great response and applause
from the Hellenic audience. December 2011 and "Half
Past Midnight" hits the Best Debut Release / Newcomer
of 2011 on Heavy Paradise. Later
on 2012, the band has worked on new songs and recorded their
second album "Dangerous" which was released on
22 February 2013 on the "AOR Heaven" label. Wild
Rose "Dangerous" receives rave reviews worldwide
from the press and in June 2013 hits No.1 on import sales
in Japan (BURRN Magazine). March
2014 and Wild Rose sign with "AOR Blvd Records"
and are celebrating their Ten Years Of Existence with the
release of their third album "Hit 'N' Run" along
with a tour to support it.
