The Rose Project, a Chester County-based band known for its harmonies and passionate live performances, will hit the road this spring in support of their new EP, a compilation of four new songs, all written by lead singer Bill Rose.

The EP was recorded and mixed by Al Hahn and Star Diner Studios, mastered by Jon Beard, and produced, arranged by composed and performed by Rose, Hahn, Steve K. and Dave Walker, with backing harmonies by Anita Samis and Roberta Watts.

It includes the songs "The Sound," "Dark Street," "Sleeper Hold" and "Long Gone," which were written by Rose during nearly two-year journey of songwriting that began and ended during Rose's two-year stint in Nicaragua. While there, he managed Palmetto Medical Initiatives projects throughout Latin America, helping to establish a health care facility in Nicaragua.

The band formed in 2008. Their songs are an eclectic blend of acoustic folk and introspective lyrics that examine civil oppression, as well as individual hardships and rebirth.

The band will perform on March 29 at Doc Watson's in Exton, and at The Market at Liberty Place in Kennett Square on May 29. For information, call 302-416-0572, or e-mail
