David Rosales has announced the release of his first full-length album, Brave Ones, due out April 27, 2018. The singer-songwriter returns with his rich baritone vocal and hopeful melodies that create a perfect blend of authentic country, folk, blues and rock.
On the album, Rosales shares, “It’s 11 songs of love, loss, adversity and triumph. I get into some pretty heavy subjects, but overall, the album has a positive vibe. It’s uplifting and makes me feel better after I listen to it…I’m hopeful it does the same for the listener.”
The 11-track album was co-produced by Matt Grundy (Donavon Frankenreiter) and Rosales himself. The team took to recording in the wind-swept Southern California High Desert region inside an isolated log cabin dubbed, Super Bloom Studios. The album clearly displays Rosales’ diverse songwriting prowess, as he seamlessly blends his vintage sonic taste with fresh vision, channeling inspirations such as Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash, Ryan Adams and Nathaniel Rateliff.

David Rosales is a Los Angeles-native, raised in a mixed family of seven brothers and sisters, where upon his 11th Birthday was given his first guitar by his grandfather. He instantly fell in love with the instrument and began writing songs of his own. Since that time, David has been involved in several significant projects, most notably hard rock band Silent Treatment, the Americana duo David & Olivia, and now, continuing as a solo artist. Having previously released two solo EPs (Smile, Along the Way), Brave Ones will be his debut full-length album. When not taking the stage, the deep-rooted family man enjoys spending time at home in Huntington Beach, CA with his wife and two children in the ocean and on the trails.
