“Heavy Shit” by Blake Rose is like a combination of hard rock personality meets pop production standards. Groovy in nature and lyrically introspective and angsty this song is sure to speak to a youthful demographic. Alcoholism is no joke and becoming numb to drinking is an issue more people deal with then not. It’s like you hit 21 in the states and all of a sudden it just becomes a huge part of your life, at least for most it seems like. Vocally “Heavy Shit” is full of textures similar to artists like Imagine Dragons or even The Weeknd. Definitely a song that might make you think twice as your partying to its energy.

Hailing from Perth, Australia, Blake Rose has had a keen musical curiosity for as long as he can remember. One of the first instruments Rose ever picked up was the didgeridoo, a wind instrument created by indigenous Australians. However, the didgeridoo has its limitations and by the age of 12, Rose had started to teach himself to play guitar. However, it wasn’t until a 3-month long camping trip around Australia with his family that really developed Rose into the songwriter he is today. As they drove from campsite to campsite, teenage Rose started to write his own songs in the back of his family car. On the return home, Rose started to experiment with GarageBand and Pro Tools, falling in love with the idea of creating a song from start to finish.After the trip, Rose was accepted into a school program called World Challenge which would take him to Sri Lanka for 2 weeks. The only issue was the expensive price tag attached. Still only a teenager, Rose was limited in job options and decided to give busking a shot. Taking to the streets of Perth, Rose quickly raised the money necessary and, perhaps more importantly, he discovered his love for live performance.
Rose’s music is electrifying. He is a rare voice hellbent on defining his own sound and his own path. Blake Rose may only be three releases deep, but he is a name you’re going to want to keep an eye on.
