"Wild Rose - 4" Artwork & Info revealed!

Wild Rose has been rockin' for over a decade.

The original idea was sprung in 2004 by Andy Rock. A lot of soul-searching was required initially, as it was essential to find a suitable line up to harness the stylish and polished mellow sound of a quality A.O.R. band. Finally, after two years and several line up changes Wild Rose settled on the line up today, introduced to an unsuspecting public back in 2006, with quality songs composed by Andy Rock.

2007 Wild Rose released their first promo single CD entitled "It's All About Love" which contained the hard hitting title track and "Too Late", tracks that rapidly became accepted and loved by the A.O.R. audience. During the same period Wild Rose were picked up as support on Talisman's Farewell Tour in Hellas.

Wild Rose returned in mid 2009 and recorded a 10 track demo CD with tracks written by Andy Rock and Dirty Haris.
These songs matured through the rehearsal process and ended up in professionally recorded versions on the band’s debut album “Half Past Midnight” which was finally released on 10 October 2011 on the "Retrospect Records" label and received great results in the A.O.R. specialized press. The band also performed two successful live shows in Athens and Thessaloniki to support "Half Past Midnight" and also participated in "Rosewood Festival" and received a great response and applause from the Hellenic audience.
