Today marks the release of “Arm Full of Roses” from Nashville-based artist Mark Henes, who impressed with the yearning and atmospheric “Ghost Train” in November. His latest, “Arm Full of Roses” is an engaging country ballad with romantic intentions, led by Henes’ stirring baritone. Reverb-heavy guitars exude a timeless quality, a feeling reinforced further by the doo-wop harmonies. The “why so sad, little girl?” repetition plays with sincere emotion. The track’s emotive, no-frills approach plays memorably, and Henes’ songwriting continues to shine.
Henes is celebrating today’s release of “Arm Full of Roses” with a performance at Douglas Corner Cafe in Nashville on Saturday, 2/1.
“Arm Full of Roses” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2020’ Spotify playlist.
