As 2014 was coming to a close, I was listening to tracks that I had enjoyed throughout the year, and came across this simple folk song made of nothing more than a guitar and a strong, stunning voice. I stopped whatever I was doing to learn more, and soon realized the singer was Rosie Cima, who happens to live in the San Francisco. From what I can tell, she remained mostly unnoticed in 2014, so 2015 is the time to start paying attention, folks.
Cima tells me she’s slowly putting together a full-length album to complement her three-song solo EP and the second EP she recorded with Teddy Lee (also highly recommended). Listen to it all below (along with a video) and put Rosie on your list of Bay Area artists to keep an eye on in 2015.
