Along the Spanish-moss-draped road to ROSARYVILLE, Kate Campbell introduces a mother who sings like Rosemary Clooney ("Rosemary"), a monk who builds miniatures of places he's never seen ("Ave Maria Grotto"), and a woman who rolls Cuban cigars amidst the memories of her homeland and hope for her daughter ("Rosa's Coronas"). These dwellers in the deep South of Campbell's imagination are all on spiritual quests, and preacher's daughter Campbell doesn't stint on insight or music. "Porcelain Blue" is a Southern rock-styled mover set to B3 organ melodies, its words framing a rush of images following an encounter with a holy statue on a New Orleans backstreet.

"Porcelain Blue" is a Southern rock-styled mover set to B3 organ melodies, its words framing a rush of images following an encounter with a holy statue on a New Orleans backstreet. The simple folk arrangement of "Look Away," a rumination on the burning of an old plantation house, is a gateway to the swirling emotions of sadness, anger, hate, pride, and hope that bind the fabric of Southern history. Kate Campbell's road to ROSARYVILLE is a trip for the imagination and the heart, a journey you won't soon forget. -- Kerry Dexter

    Take this road

    Kate Campbell beautifully evokes her lifetime in the American South with Rosaryville. So few Nashville based ''artists'' deal honestly with the challenges and opportunities Southerners confront in these days of PC extremism. These are beautiful, literate poems that recognize the fulfillment flowing from a search for answers- while acknowledging the difficulties of struggling through a sea of stereotypes. Kate Campbell presents the true face of the South. Trust her vision here; it feels as if she's holding our hands while we travel down her road.
