Better Man", Irish singer/songwriter Rosie Carney now returns with her absolutely stunning new single called "Awake Me", a powerful confessional penned with disarming honesty.
"Awake Me” is a song that’ll stop you dead in your tracks, from the swirling ambience permeating the track to the tender plucked arpeggio, Rosie proves a deft hand at creating sublime tonal flourishes to compliment her vivid lyrics and enchanting voice. At just 19-years-old, Rosie Carney has already experienced more of the tumult of life than most her age. Through her raw poetic talent, her experience is channelled into her beautiful music which, at times, recalls the vivid and imaginative folk ambience of Joni Mitchell.
For Rosie to be getting on with her career she has had to overcome insurmountable odds. Having struggled with depression and anorexia half her life, music has guided her through it. In a year where discussion about mental health both in the music industry and in broader society has come a long way in removing the stigma and providing insight into sufferers, Rosie is determined to help others by being vocal about her own experiences through her music and her blog, which you can read more about that here. There is no doubt that Carney is a beacon of hope to young people everywhere, and "Awake Me" positions her as a phenomenal talent still just in her formative years.
