And yet again, MusicTAP presents another exclusive premiere!

“Simplicity”, the new single from Los Angeles musician James Rose, shimmers with refreshing gleams of psychedelic folk in a sun-soaked trance. His mellow California roots echo within each sonically orchestrated flow. “Simplicity” takes a deep breath of life and breathes out a revitalizing air-clearing exhale from the mind like a wave washing the coastal shore clean. “Simplicity” is out for release June 3, 2019.

Having lived in New Orleans, the UK, and Los Angeles, James Rose draws inspiration from the music scene in each place he has called home. Each city has laid its vibrant cultural and musical tapestries along the paths of Rose’s own creative journey. His newest single, “Simplicity” acts as a mantra for inner peace and clarity as breezy melodies dance through warm, West Coast haze. While lyrically the single sets a soothing tone to live peacefully, its musical breakdowns flourish as each delicate layer breaks free, paying homage to the song’s meaning to push through the barriers of fear and discomfort. “Simplicity” basks in the sunlight of each new day and injects the solar energy straight to the soul.

To quote Mr. Rose, “My method of writing lyrics is usually done through the subconscious and goes through a dream-like filter; it gives the songs the opportunity to float in the air and not be tied down to a specific event or story”

Please listen and see what you think!

Simplicity” will be released on Monday, June 3rd, 2019
