Rosi Golan may be based out of Brooklyn, but she certainly feels at home and welcome in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection, where she’s played around a dozen shows in the past few years.  I recently got a chance to chat with the ineffably enchanting folk pop singer/songwriter, who tells me, “I love Philly.  The audiences are really awesome and warm. I don’t ever think I’ve played a bad show in Philly, whether at the Tin Angel or World Café Live.”  And Rosi is returning to the “warmth” of Philly this evening, with another show at the Tin Angel and she tells me it’s going to sound a little different than previous tours: “I’m coming out as a trio, so you can expect a lot of three-part harmonies.  We’re playing with two guitars and a piano.”

This October Rosi Golan released her Fortuna EP, which also has her going in a slightly new direction: “I wrote all the songs for the EP at the same time, all concentrated around one moment in my life, as opposed to being written over the course of a few years.  Sonically, it’s a lot more stripped than anything I’ve previously release.”  The songs of Fortuna are, indeed, boldly bare and have the songwriter exploring the most delicate portions of the human experience with an equally delicate musicality.  She tells me that the process of making Fortuna has been her highlight of the year but, while she seems quite proud of it, she’s also anxious to move on to something new.  She says that 2014 is going to be all about writing and recording a new full-length: “I mean, it’s time for one.  It’s been two years and I think it’s going to take a turn in a completely different direction.”
