Everything's Coming Up Rosey
The pop of a champagne bottle opening never fails to light up a room and bring smiles, whether it’s in the midst of a big celebration or an intimate affair. There’s something warmly nostalgic about that flute full of delicious bubbly, especially when it’s pink. One delightful sip can transport you to a simpler, yet elegant time of exhilarating love, easy laughter and letting go. Multi-honoured singer-songwriter Heather Hill is serving up the joyful effervescence of pink champagne in her irresistible new release, “Rosey” - available now!
The Blue Mountains, Ontario-based artist is pouring on intoxicating romance with this retro confection that blows a kiss back to the post-Swing Jazz era with a wink and a nudge to Les Paul and Mary Ford, all dressed in modern musical sensibilities. The lead single from her upcoming fourth album Twilight Mist, “Rosey” was co-written with Hill’s frequent collaborator, award winning Ontario singer-songwriter, Matt Gerber.
“‘Rosey’ is a throw-back 1950s jazz pop tune about love and delight,” notes Hill. “Matt and I imagined an incredible night of pink champagne and dancing. Everything is bubbly and full of love and life.”
“This heart opening song had me envisioning a fancy party in a beautiful dance hall,” Hill recalls. “There are pink bubbles, pink drinks, pink dresses, pink roses and a jazz band. At this fancy party, the guests are floating around the dance-floor in bliss and delight. Love and pink champagne has transformed the guests and the entire evening.”
The result sounds like the most sumptuously romantic and giddily joyous affair ever. The best part is we’re all invited.
“Rosey” makes it effortless to get caught up in its rapturous vibe with Hill’s sweet, flirtatious vocal buoyed by acclaimed, Juno nominated jazz pianist and drummer David Restivo, guitarist Mike Rud and upright bassist Jill McKenna. Truly a cross country effort, the instrumental trio recorded the instrumental tracks for “Rosey” in Restivo’s home city of Nelson, B.C. and Hill recorded her lead vocal at Villa Sound in Singhampton, Ontario with engineer Adam Fair, who also mixed the song.
Rosey's medicine is simple depending on your mood: either put on your dancing shoes and crank up volume, or fill a bathtub full of bubbles and pour yourself a glass of something pink and fizzy. Transform your mood with a vase of roses for some love and romance. Pour in the bubbles, some rose oil or ylang ylang, and dim the lights. Clear your throat and sing along.
I hope this song makes you smile. If it does, share it with a friend. xo
