With her cowgirl hat, platinum bob and 1940s Western getups, L.A.-based artist Rosy Nolan evokes midcentury California honky-tonk legends such as Rose Maddox and Jean Shepard. But the San Francisco native honed her performance chops in riot-grrl and post-punk indie bands across the US and the UK before finding her new sound in L.A.’s tight-knit old-time community. Now a confident bandleader and songwriter in the center of L.A.’s latest Country music resurgence, Nolan’s vulnerable songs and onstage charm are endearing her to audiences across Southern California and around the US as she promotes her feisty single “One of Your Songs” in advance of her fourth album, due this fall.
