Rose Dorn is a trio of songwriters who, though initially scattered across Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, met somewhere in Eagle Rock. This origin story functions well as a metaphor for their music, which at once feels eerily familiar—close to home—and simultaneously escapes total understanding, never arriving where you’re expecting it to, as in a dream. Showcasing the synergy of three sensitive minds, Rose Dorn’s bittersweet songs always seem to reflect multiple sides of the moods and stories they’re sharing. Therein lies the power, even magic, of a Rose Dorn song. And this is to say nothing of the music itself, of the tones and textures that walk that same line between reality and ethereality.
