Rita Hosking – Frankie and the No-Go Road

Rita Hosking - 'Frankie and the No-Go Road' - cover (300dpi)

Frankie and the No−Go Road is the sixth album from California singer-writer Rita Hosking and the pinnacle of her recorded output to date, the recording is a delightful collection of songs of graced by the artists expressive voice and enlightened writing, so much music gets labelled Americana these days and much of it fails to get to the heart and soul of the genre in my opinion – this album is one of the exceptions

“In college, an Eastern Religions professor was drawing a dream I had on the board for the class, interpreting it as he went along. At one point, he called me ‘the hero’. I protested −I certainly didn’t feel like one in the dream, or at all. He spun around, looked me square in the eye and said ‘we are all living our own hero’s journey.’ It was one of those pivotal moments where the human puzzle began to make a little bit of sense.”
