This is Rosie’s first long player. Ten songs, focused on vivid childhood memories and images from the perspective of a young girl in the process of growing up, dealing with complex emotions. Peppered with audio samples from her childhood, the record spotlights Rosie’s striking voice, which rings out wonderfully in the spirit of Joni Mitchell. When We Were Small is Rosie Thomas’ debut full-length and on it she sings, plays guitar and piano. She is ably (and gratefully) assisted throughout by friends too numerous to mention here (plus, then what would we put in the liner notes?). Oh, and also: Rosie performs regularly in Seattle comedy clubs as her alter-ego, Sheila, an unwitting, well-intentioned yet pitiable pizza delivery driver in complicated neck brace and outlandishly magnified spectacles.
