The Roseline purveys a style of rootsy, melodic Americana influenced by wide-ranging artists such as Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, Gram Parsons and Josh Ritter. The band's second release, "Lust for Luster" sees an increased role for keyboardist/percussionist Ehren Starks, who split writing duties with principal songwriter Colin Halliburton. Riding shotgun are Jeff Jackson's sublime pedal steel licks and an understated rhythm section that you'd totally let make out with your sister. Listen to our podcast preview of the Roseline's new album.
