New Orleans-by-way-of-Detroit singer-songwriter Esther Rose’s sophomore album You Made It This Far, released late last month on Father/Daughter Records, is an impressive collection of classic sounding folk/country tunes.

From the plaintive tone of opening track “Always Changing” to the bouncy “Handyman” to wistful closer “Don’t Blame It On The Moon“, it’s a solid album throughout, with “Only Loving You” standing out as one of the highlights. The video for “Only Loving You” was filmed at New Orleans’ St. Roch Tavern, which offers up pinball, karaoke, and a $15 dollar haircut + beer combo. Seems like a pretty happening spot.

Esther Rose plays The Horseshoe Tavern on September 17 and 18 opening for Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets. Haircut not included.
