Album Notes
Country singer-songwriter Frank Rose has recently wrapped up recording his second full length album entitled "this is now that was then."
"We got the best of the best on this record," Rose said, referring to the musicians who recorded with him. Four of the band members are well known for playing with Dwight Yokam, including the producer of "this is now that was then," Al Bonhomme. "Al has put together some of the finest musicians in country music today," Frank went on to explain. "Our fiddle player, Larry Franklin plays with Alan Jackson and Shania Twain. John Molo, the drummer, plays with Phil Lesh and Winona. Even our horn player is huge!" Trumpeter Lee Thornburg is well known for playing with the Tower of Power and on Jay Leno's Tonight Show.
Frank penned nine of the twelve tracks on the album, chosing one song from Nashville writer Stanley T, a song from former bandmates in Arizona, while a cover of rock band Poison's 1988 hit "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" rounds out the record.
The first video, currently in production in LA, will be for "Tennessee Rain." "We actually let the director pick the song," Frank said, referring to Dermott Downs, who last year was nominated for Video of the Year at the County Music Awards. Downs has a long list of Directing and Cinematography credits including the hit TV show "CSI."
"Just like the musicians on the CD, we pulled no punches and went for the best of the best in recruiting Dermott to shoot our video," Frank said. "The album will get people's attention, when they see the video, they'll be blown away."
Frank Rose's country career began about ten years ago with a move to Arizona. Initially, Frank played bass and sang back-up for local bands, occasionally opening up for national acts at the Desert Sky Pavillion in Phoenix and at the Country Thunder USA Series alongside stars like Leann Rimes and Trace Adkins. As Frank started writing more and more songs on his own, he gradually moved to the front of the stage, taking lead of the band. He moved his act into the recording studio in 1998, independently releasing his first country album, "Hell Or High Water," which landed him airplay on KDKB and KNIX in Arizona. In 2002, Frank recorded the patriotic anthem "How About You," which garnered more attention from the industry insiders leading him to recording his second album. He is currently involved with several "Support the Troops" organizations.

your songs rule, you will be on top of the charts soon
your cd was perfect


As Fate would have it-Frank and I met Twice- one year apart! We were recording our CDS in LA in the Same studio! I was BLOWN AWAY by his Sophisticated Lyrics, Amazing Vocals and First Rate Production! This is an AWESOME CD that Every Country Fan should have in their collection!


Love the CD
Great singer/song writer. A true talent.

Joe Louis

It's one of those CD's that you can listen to from beginning to end.
Every track is great. One thing is for sure, after listening, you'll be singing these songs at work. Great CD!


Not a bad song in the bunch...
I am a new Frank Rose fan and have not been disappointed at all. I have recommended Frank to my family and friends.
You will be getting more out of the cd then you pay for.


Frank is the best!
My favorite song out of the bunch will always be "Malibu Moon" but I love every single song on this CD! I've had the opportunity to listen to Frank live and be at a couple of his concerts out here in California. I have to say, he's definitely one of the best new comers I've heard in quite a while!
