about

“Poolside” takes the listener down into the depths of an abandon swimming pool room, hidden in the basement of one of Portland’s historic, downtown hotels. With floor to ceiling tile and an empty concrete pool, the natural sound and acoustics of this room are stunning. Inspired by the sound of the room, Rose decided to record a live album in the space, hence the album name “Poolside”. To minimize interruption from the Max and Streetcars above, Rose and a small crew recorded “Poolside” in the quiet hours, starting at 11pm and ending the sessions around 7am. All of the reverb and sounds that you hear on “Poolside” are untampered with and completely raw. Lance Andrew Leonnig, recording engineer and current bassist for the Ezza Rose Band, captured perfectly the magic of this unique space and its undeniable compatibility with Rose’s haunting voice.

about

Ezza Rose Portland, Oregon

“The progression from folk to something more closely resembling rock has been organic and fluid like the rest of her history, but she is not without a significant amount of stubborn drive. This latest change is just another indicator that Rose is, above all, a consummate musician.” - Anchorage Press ... more

Track Name: Compassion for the Thief
I'm a criminal who can't be free
I put things in my pocket when you don't see
Away away away they go
For 2 cents on the dollar they soon will be sold

One day I'll be a frail/old woman
Still learning my right from wrong
A confused frail/old woman
Hiding from fire in the trees

To be free it's understood
Resist temptation when times are good
Track Name: Loving and Dreaming
Baby I know lately Iʼve been out of control
I just want to fight with you to hear your voice echo through my mind Thatʼs where I find Iʼm not alone
But I want to make you wonder what might have been and what could be

Kickin nʼ beatin, lovin nʼ dreamin, kissing and shoutin

When the walls come down I may be miles and miles away
Iʼm sorry you built them so high, out of the memories she wears upon her face I know sheʼll never be replaced
But I want to make you wonder what might have been and what could be

Kickin nʼ beatin, lovinin nʼ dreaming, kissing and shoutin
Kickin nʼ beatin, lovinin nʼ dreaming, kissing and shoutin
Track Name: Baby Blue
I love my baby blue x4
Nʼ Iʼm gonna love you till the day that I die x3
You and those big brown eyes

Meet me at Half Moon x4
Bay x4

Nʼ Iʼm gonna love you till the day that I die x3
You and those big brown eyes
Track Name: Clowns
Do you remember the 9th of September, do you remember the time
Do you remember the leaves were yellow, do you remember I cried
Do the remember the night was calling, do you remember I bowed
Do you remember the sky as itʼs falling, do you remember your proud
Do you remember the makeup we were wearing, do you remember my face Do you remember my back as itʼs turning, all white covered in lace

Clowns they do sing a familiar song, paint it all on with white
Lost in the distance your mouth is still smiling, cover it all up with the night

Clowns they do sing a familiar song, paint it all on with white
Lost in the distance your mouth is still smiling, cover it all up with the night
Do you remember the 9th of September, do you remember the time
Do you remember the leaves were yellow, do you remember I died
Track Name: County Line
I walk this old county line
Lookin for something I lost along the way
I canʼt find you, I canʼt find you

Took a train to the East
Set my eyes to feast upon you
When I got to your town, all I found was your essence on the ground

oh oh Claudio x4

Like a trail of breadcrumbs I follow you down x2

Took an airplane to the south
Knew youʼd be in a different house
Couldnʼt bring myself to see, scared what would become of me

oh oh Claudio x4

Like a trail of breadcrumbs I follow you down x2

I walk this old county line
Lookin for something I lost along the way
I canʼt find you
Track Name: Tie Me Up
Tie me up, hold me down
Left me forever hungry babe
For your sweet sound
I need your lovin what am I to do
But love you only, your lovin fool

It took time, I waited so long
My love to sing, to sing you this song
But who am I foolin, this ainʼt nothin new
Iʼve been singing my life away
Just singing for you

When I cry out to you in the night
From so far away, love please hear my plight
Tie me up, hold me down

Left me forever hungry babe
For your sweet sound
I need your lovin what am I to do
But love you only, your lovin fool
Track Name: Storyteller
Say its your birthday you aristocrat
Say its a number and your punishing the fact
That you'll be
Say its a life and call it at that
Say your career manipulate the fact that your free Twenty

I can be the storyteller
You can be the story
Tell you tails of dragon slaying
Kings romancing glory
Power is a dangerous thing
Facilitate the things that it brings

Say that its there but it can't be seen
A reference to the bible
Just another hopeful dream I scream
How easy it all seems

I can be the storyteller
You can be the story
Tell you tails of dragon slaying Kings romancing glory
Power is a dangerous thing
Facilitate the things that it brings

For glory is just a toy in eyes in babys' when their young
Who choose their lies and prophesies using a different tongue
So brush your teeth and comb your hair for all our work is done
Power is a dangerous thing
And all the beautiful things that it brings

I can be the storyteller
You can be the story
Tell you tails of dragon slaying
Kings romancing glory
Power is a dangerous thing
Facilitate the things that it brings
Track Name: Trigger
Iʼve got my finger on the trigger but somehow youʼre still alive x2

Well my feet were bruised and hollow when I ran into morning today
And my hands were heavy in sorrow for Iʼd given my Daniel away
Gave him away x3

Iʼve got my finger on the trigger but somehow your still alive x2

Shady lane, my memory
By the lilly pond waters a woman waits for me she waits for me x3

Iʼve got my finger on the trigger but somehow youʼre still alive x2
Track Name: Blue Sheets
Iʼve got a hole in my foot
I can walk fine
I can walk but a crooked line
Youʼve got a hole in your knee
From which you bleed
All your catastrophes

Nʼ all I see is blue
All I see in blue sheets

Iʼve got a lamp in my stomach which helps me see
All my philosophies
Youʼve got a bulliet in you hand that you caught
For the war wasnʼt good enough

Nʼ all I see is blue
all I see in blue sheets x2
Track Name: Daymares
I wake up to be sure I can sleep again
I sleep to be sure I can dream
I dream so I can be yours one night at a time
Your voice is just a message machine

When the sun hits the floor
I donʼt wake anymore
When the sun hits my eyes I will rise
Itʼs the part of the day that I truly despise
Cause I was dreaming of my sweetie pies eyes

So I listen to you mechanically
Your voice is just a message machine X2
I wake up to be sure I can sleep again
I sleep to be sure I can dream
Track Name: Sailboat Land
You needed reason to leave, you needed reason to go back
Is it not reason enough, is it not reason enough
This wont be epic, cause Iʼm not epic yet I exist without you
I see the leaves turn, I feel the wind blowing
Yet I will not go

To my sailboat, to my sailboat land X2

Iʼll keep a smile on my face, hold my head high and walk with grace
For grace she showed me truth, a snapshot back into my youth
My youth

To my sailboat, to my sailboat land X2

In my youth I saw every lie, and in my lie I saw young men cry
and in their tears I saw a woman standing by, and in her hands there I Iay and in her hands there I lay, in her hands there I lay

In my sailboat, in my sailboat land X2
