BIOGRAPHY

New songs from an old soul are what you’ll find in Austin band Rosie and the Ramblers.

Their sound is a juxtaposition of young and old, of modern and classic, of country, rock and blues. They will blaze through a Rolling Stones cover like wildfire then pad through a waltz with comfortable simplicity. Some of their most danceable songs are the most downhearted.

Songwriter Selena “Rosie” Rosanbalm writes with sincerity, but not without a sense of humor. Her songs range from the raw and emotional to the catchy and hilarious, and the themes within them are influenced by Selena’s childhood spent state-hopping around the United States. Themes include family, travel, and relationships, but the overall question Selena seems to try to answer is how can you plant roots when the ground beneath you won’t stop moving?

Rosie hand-picks her Ramblers from Austin’s immense talent pool. Present players are Matt Thomas (guitar), Vance Hazen (bass), Bob Hoffnar (pedal steel) and Ralph Power (drums). Past/Guest players have included Sly Barrack, Catlin Rutherford, John Winsor, Evan Christian, and Howdy Darrell.

Selena began singing at age 8 and by 10 was determined to become a professional vocalist. She studied classical vocal techniques, dance, and acting through college and embarked on a career in musical theatre. After a stint in New York City, Selena shifted her focus to a more music-centric career based in Austin. She formed Rosie and the Ramblers in early 2011. Selena loves photo bombing and children's breakfast cereal. She also sings lead with local Western Swing outfit Hot Texas Swing Band.
