Scroggins & Rose Make Space for Imaginative Listening with New Album “Curios”

- American Songwriter -

"Curios is fanciful and fascinating as a creative body of work....The grace with which spaciousness and tonal poise is applied to both parts evokes the formality of Rose’s classical training and the technical adeptness and compositional complexity evokes Scroggins propensity for bluegrass energy."

GRAMMY-Nominated Violinist Alisa Rose and Mandolinist Virtuoso Tristan Scroggins Release ‘Curios,’ a Musical Dialog Expressed Between Classical and Bluegrass

- The Country Note -

"Curios’ compositional focus transforms the album’s sensitive arrangements into meaningful stories... The haunting “Stellar Sea” track combines the technical challenge of counterpoint composition with two powerful melodies inspired by the emotional conflict and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis; listeners follow along as the competing melodic realities eventually weave into one resolved voice in the face of adversity."


- The Bluegrass Situation -

"The hours upon hours Scroggins has devoted to the technique show, as he carefully and deliberately teases crosspicking melodies out of each of these tunes — no matter how difficult that task may be."
