NEW YORK TIMES "As a songwriter, Ms. Rose works in the realm of Lucinda Williams, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Alejandro Escovedo and other terse, unflinching songwriters on the rock fringe of country. She sings about hard-nosed characters — herself, perhaps, among them"
SPIN MAGAZINE "So this kicks nine kinds of ass, and you oughta get up on it. Chelle Rose is an "Appalachian rock'n'roll" queen from Eastern Tennessee with a scythe-like twang that evokes Lucinda Williams but not "Lucinda Williams"; the title track was written to appease the vengeful ghost of her deceased ex-boyfriend (success), the hardest rocker is called "Alimony," and the rest will make Justified fans flip the fuck out. Outstanding."
USA TODAY (PLAYLIST PICK) "Rose revives a great Julie Miller rocker on her swampy Ray Wylie Hubbard-produced Ghost of Browder Holler album.
OXFORD AMERICAN “The fact that Ray Wylie Hubbard produced this album is probably reason enough to buy it or download it or whatever you do to get music these days. But you’ll be getting a lot more than that. This is one of those albums that you put on, hoping it will be good, and it turns out to be better than you had any right to expect. If you were playing it on a turntable, you’d keep moving the tone-arm back to play certain tracks over again.” —WILLIAM GAY
LONE STAR MUSIC MAGAZINE "Now this woman can sing. And growl. And purr. And rock. Basically, Chelle Rose does everything a real live country ingénue is supposed to do. And it’s all on display on Ghost of Browder Holler. But if you’ve grown accustomed to today’s country served up by artists who hail from the other side of Mrs. Mason and Dixon’s line and warble in affected Southern accents, Rose and that voice that drips sweet Tupelo honey on every syllable sung will be a much-needed shock to your system."
AMERICAN SONGWRITER “Rose and her sassy stance (make) the Dixie Chicks sound like Taylor Swift and pushes this into the red where it stays for 40 swaggering, brash minutes.”
