About the Single - Stay Right Here

"Stay Right Here" is an original inspirational tune by Rosalie Drysdale.

This is a very personal song to me.  I bare my heart and soul in this song and that’s why it is one of my favorite songs.  

 

What greater thing is there to have than peace.  Peace.  In this world that is such an illusive thing.  Even when you think you have achieved it, it can seem like it fleetingly disappears without notice.  

 

Is peace something one can actually own?  I don’t think so.  It isn’t something that you can purchase, steal, conjure, convince, seduce, manipulate, demand, parade or patent. 

 

But, peace is achievable.  It can be within a person purely, authentically, and consistently when and if that person daily connects to the Ultimate Source of peace. That Source is Jehovah God, the One WHO IS Himself, PEACE.  

 

I can only have peace when I “plug in” to that stream of endless supply of peace.  

 

That is what this song is about.  “Take me to your place of peacefulness, I need to know your Holy Righteousness.  In Your presence all fears fade away.  I’ll stay right here at your side.”

 

That place of peacefulness is available to anyone who seeks it.  

 
Take Me Higher Album Cover  copy.jpg

 

About the Single - Take Me Higher

"Take Me Higher" is an original romantic tune by Rosalie Drysdale.

We all want to experience unfettered, unbounded love.

Sometimes, though we want to be loved very badly and accepted for who we are, we make it very difficult to experience that love.  Because we’re scared.   So we keep our protection mechanisms in place all around us which actually, often inadvertently,  turn into walls. So the one trying to love us, can’t actually get through those walls…. And you can have a stalemate and therefore heartache.  

This song is someone just laying it all on the line.

“I’ve never met anyone like you”

 

So already, the person is saying, “man, you know what?  You are pretty cool.  There’s something about you that I can see as extremely valuable.  I’m going to take a chance on you”.

 

Then the hook,  the person is fully in,  full on.  

They’re saying, “I took a chance on love, I took a chance on you based on my assessment of you, and it was totally worth it.  I had no idea love could be this great.  I had no idea we could ascend to these heights.”

 

And the lyric, “crazy love” - just really refers to love that isn’t keeping score.  Kind of a reckless love that gives freely and unconditionally without thinking about itself…

Rosalie's smooth voice and depth of emotion is perfect for this song about romance, love and commitment.

She tells a story of the exhilaration a person feels when together with that special person.  

The perfect song for love, romance weddings, or just for cuddling by the fire.

Join Rosalie for this romantic journey of love and exhilaration.

 
Happy Now  copy.jpg

 

About the Single - Happy Now

 

"Happy Now" is an original song by Rosalie Drysdale.

This song becomes pretty self explanatory as you listen to it.  Fortunately or unfortunately too many people can relate to this song from a negative experience. 

 

 

The way I wrote this song though, I think does justice to the infraction but still lends levity to how ridiculous and pointless it is for a lover to cheat on their significant other.

 

It’s kind of a sarcastic, yet not bitter,   attitude from the person who is kind of “left on a lurch”.  

 

It’s like when you were a little kid and you did something bad and then experienced the consequences and your parents said, “Look what you did.  Are you happy now?”   Or   “I hope you’re happy now”.    :)

The song has an incredible feeling to it, although the story is extremely serious, it is delivered in a mocking way, kinda of a Told You So.

Rosalie sings about a spouse who stepped out of bounds, and "Played the Field" but "Struck Out" and now is OUT.

The song has a great rock and roll beat thanks to the incredible sounds of James Creasey's guitar and the driving drums.

You will find yourself tapping your toes and laughing a little

 
Gotta Try Album Cover copy.jpg

 

About the Single - Gotta Try

An Original Song by Rosalie Drysdale!

First of all this song identifies that EVERYBODY is talking…. Talking talking talking…. No shortage of opinions on any issue…. On and on it goes..

 

But fewer people are listening.  So that’s the first point made…is sort of “well I confess there’s a lot about the future that I can’t actually predict and anything I have to say right now, I’m kinda finding out that nobody really wants to hear it”….LOL

 

So the character in the song goes on to make the point, “ I know I’ve failed in life, I’ve made bad choices, I’ve hopefully learned and I’m going to do better.  In the meantime what I do have is that I can keep trying.  I can keep not giving up.”

 

And that thought pattern is established in the Hook.  The character takes a stand and says, “listen, when all else is going to s***, I can still hope and keep trying. Cuz I happen to believe that even when the preverbal night is long, I believe that the TRUTH will eventually prevail.”

 

And then in the last verse, the character is basically saying that they are going to forge ahead, never quitting and always trying.   Then asks the question, “who is with me?”,  “when all else fails can I count on you?”.   "I don't want to do this"  thing called life "alone". 

 

Gonna Try will inspire you.  

 

Rosalie sings about how good things can happen to you, but only if you try, and are not intimidated to move forward.

The song talks about brining someone into your life and doing life with them, being able to depend on them.....but not giving up despite any set backs.

Rosalie's voice is powerful, the beat is classic rock and roll, you will love it.

 
Natalie copy.jpg

 

About the Single - Natalie

Natalie is an original song by Rosalie Drysdale.

It tells a haunted tale of a life spent lonely with regrets over past Failures and missed opportunities.

Rosalie sings the song with the deepest of emotions, her incredible voice allows her to portray the depth of anguish felt by Natalie.

This song is a cautionary and conciliatory tale in that it demonstrates how many of us allow our past hurts, disappointments, perhaps our own failures to dictate our final analysis of things.  

 

The song talks about a woman who had as much potential as the next person - and perhaps even more.  However, dismal and very difficult external circumstances in her life caused her  so much pain.   As for any of us, she likely didn’t do everything right,  however she did her best and worked very hard in her life. 

 

But at the end of her life, though she raised a family and her children adored her,  her many, many disappointments and hurts and buried heartache plagued her soul until the end.  At the end of her life she was inconsolable.  

 

So this song is trying to console Natalie, who is the woman in this story.  

As Rosalie says...."The Past Should Inform our Future, NOT Dictate it".

Please join Rosalie in her one of a kind performance!

 
Touch Your People copy.jpg

 

About the Single - Touch Your People Once Again

Touch Your People Once Again is one of the most intimate of modern Gospel Songs.

I’ve known this song for many years.  It was written by Pelle Karlsson and it has been covered by many singers, including his wife, Evie Tournquist Karlsson.  (I was a big fan of hers when I was a kid).

 

The song came back into my memory just a short time ago and I could not get it out of my mind and psyche so I knew I had to record it.  And with the help of genius man,  James Creasey, we recorded our own arrangement of it.

 

This song grips me in a very personal and deep way.   I am a person of faith, with a deep reverence for God: And as we all grapple with what’s going on in the world around us these days,  I just felt so strongly, that no better message needs to be sent and no more urgent prayer prayed than this, “Oh God, Please Touch Your people”.  We have crazy all around us, pain, confusion, division…….. We need God.

 

So it’s a song of acknowledgment of our need for God to help us through our current times.  I also find it remarkable that this song was written almost 40 years ago and that it is SO applicable to the times we find ourselves in today.  It’s really a message for any and all times of history.  

 

It is a profound and deeply moving supplication to God to restore his Church on Earth.

 

If you have not heard this song before, it will deeply touch your heart!

 

Rosalie Drysdale sings an intimate and heartfelt arrangement of "Touch Your People Once Again".

 

This is one of the most inspirational songs we have ever done, it is the perfect song of hope and trust in our faith.

 

Join Rosalie on this heartfelt journey of faith, hope and devotion.
