Dust in my Shadow EP embodies a full Parthenon of musical influences capturing aspects of Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, Blues, Red Dirt, Funk and Soul for a reverberant mix of substance and surprise. From melodic electric guitar riffs to the sweet sensibilities of an old time string band, Tornado Rose offers a fresh look at the evolutionary nature of music and transforms a wide spectrum of inspiration into pure musical fusion.

“Dust in my Shadow EP represents a year of soul-searching, songwriting, and really coming into our sound as a band,” said vocalist Brooke Bell. “I feel like the luckiest girl alive to get to play in a band with some of the kindest, coolest and most talented guys I know. The hardest part of making Dust in my Shadow EP was picking the genre of music we fit into because the songs on the EP are so diverse. I would consider us alternative bluegrass, alternative folk, alternative rock, alternative alternative. It is so hard to classify our style that we don’t really care to.”
Dust in my Shadow EP spans from the haunting reminiscent tale of ’80 Acres’ to the rich undertones in ‘Devil You Know.’ The soulful melancholy of ‘Gravity’ balances the themes of escapism and easing the perils of modern life found in ‘Damned If I Don’t (Have a Good Time).’
Stoney from BaconRock.com commented on the release, “Tornado Rose has crafted a new sound unlike anything else coming out of the independent music scene. Dust in my Shadow EP is a wild ride with sick electric guitar riffs over hard driving bluegrass complimented by angelic vocals. Tornado Rose is an exceptional band with a distinctive new sound that needs to be on your radar.”
Winning audiences and defying genre classification since their inception in May of 2011, Tornado Rose is an independent Alt-Rock Bluegrass band of talented, versatile musicians based out of Wichita, Kansas. Tornado Rose got their start with a rousing performance amid the mud and rain-battered revelers of the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival’s own famous Stage V and lived happily ever after, playing to packed bars, concert halls, garages, backyards and basements all over the Midwest
