ReviewShine Wednesday: Rose’s Pawn Shop

Posted in Rose's Pawn Shop on July 7, 2010 by AmericanaPulse

Every Wednesday, I feature a brief review of at least one album that has been submitted to me through the ReviewShine website. I have cleverly titled this recurring segment “ReviewShine Wednesday.”

Today’s artist comes to us from Los Angeles, California in the form of the five piece band, Rose’s Pawn Shop. The name comes from the time the band had all their equipment stolen by vocalist/lead guitarist Paul Givant’s jilted ex-girlfriend and later found their gear in the hands of a local pawnbroker. Next month, the group will release their second album Dancing on the Gallows, and it’s a high energy mash of country, rock, and bluegrass that makes for an immediately inviting sound. Some songs rely more on electric guitars (“Ball of Flames”), some focus more on banjos and fiddles (“The Garden”), and others blend everything together perfectly (“Pine Box”).

Rose’s Pawn Shop will be in Knoxville July 14 for a show at Patrick Sullivan’s in the Old City.
