Johnny’s Gone Fishing presents Andy Ferrell and Alexa Rose
Born in Boone, NC, Andy Ferrell grew up in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the birthplace of Appalachian traditional music. Sweet pedal steel rings through his sound, mixed in with rich vocal harmonies and songs that look to the hard truths of a workingman’s life as much as to the vagaries of love. At 19, Alexa Rose released her debut album, "North," which spoke to her folk influences, featuring simple renditions of handmade songs on piano and guitar. Her new album is due later this fall. Rose's performances range from whiskey heartbreak tunes to upbeat, sunny waltzes.
