about

Muscular Rose is the collaborative project of Peter Grigoriadis and Tania Rose, two Adelaide-born artists living on opposite sides of Australia. Peter's industrial and eclectic trip-hop-style instrumental music blends with the multi-instrumental organic talents of composer and singer/songwriter Tania Rose, to create a down-beat and earthy-come-angelic moody debut album in "Born to be Free".

"With songs which brush the skirt-hems of world, trip-hop, and electronica, one could easily get the feeling that they've heard some of these tracks on mainstream radio, such is their appeal. It's easy to hear why downbeat music of this calibre is so popular with music-lovers who truly want to hear something new and intriguing every time they listen to a track. Muscular Rose have succeeded in creating a veritable audio smorgasbord with each of these delicious tracks from this album."

Soul, funk, world music and the classics influence this unusual partnership, where visual art is as much an influence as sound. Brought about through a fledgling friendship, separated by thousands of kilometres, Peter and Tania discovered a special and unique connection in music that gave rise to a deep and ongoing long-distant collaboration project known as Muscular Rose. This debut album is their first recording, and contains their first batch of melodic chill-out songs. Spanning several years, this project created a unique working partnership in which all of the songs evolve from the physical distance between the two artists, and where a passion for the creative has forged a dedication towards their collaboration on both a personal and a musical plane.

Tania Rose: Ambient, Melodic, Eclectic, Harmonic, Instrumentive
Peter Grigoriadis: Expressive, Industrial, Explorative, Global, Articulate

Tania Rose is well-known for her mostly instrumental music in the ambient music genre and, as an eclectic multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, adds her unique improvisational techniques to Peter Grigoriadis’ industrious production processes. This unique partnership results in a warm blend of the musician and the craftsman, where their music is created via the airwaves, rarely spending time in the same state, let alone in the same room.

Within their mutual admiration lies the key to their results. They both have “big ears”, able to recognise and interpret each other’s musical movements as they bandy back and forth their ideas and recordings to each other. A somewhat unusual working process, but one which produces tracks which reflect their strong connection.

Track Name: Born to be Free
Chasing a dream
Awake from a nightmare
Seeing a light….seeing a flicker, a break in the storm
Away from the dark
Unlocking the silence
A sunrise away…there’s warmth from an ember, and something is born

Born to be free….and weightless
There’s no fury now
The spirit is endless…the journey is strong
Born to be free….and weightless
Illumination and endless duration
Released from the throng
Born to be free……………

Born to be free….and weightless
There’s no fury now
The spirit is endless…the journey is strong
Born to be free….and weightless
Illumination and endless duration
Released from the throng

Born to be free……………
Born….to be…….free
Born to be
To be
To be
To be
(free…..free)

Born to be free….and weightless
There’s no fury now
The spirit is endless…the journey is strong
Born to be free….and weightless
Illumination and endless duration
Released from the throng

Born to be free……………
Track Name: Like a Butterfly
Sometimes you gotta hold on
Perish the thought of goodbye
Secure a resurrection
Like the butterfly
Make your way through the darkness to the other side
I’m feelin high….
Think of the maker

Sometimes you gotta move on
Seek out the truth from the lie
Prepare a time of certainty
Like the butterfly
I’m feelin high….
Think of the maker

Like the butterfly im feelin high

Sometimes you gotta hold on
Sometimes you gotta hold on like the butterfly

Sometimes you gotta move on
Seek out the truth from the lie
Prepare a time of certainty
Like the butterfly
I’m feelin high….
Think of the maker
Like the butterfly
I’m feelin high
Track Name: Breathe into Me
This is a test…

There are times, within reason
Where your heart will bear the loss
There’s a line without meaning
It’s a line you wouldn’t cross

Take me down to the dry well
Bitter sting to wash away
Firey walls crash on forever
I don’t expect for you to stay

Breathe into me…

Take away all the stillness
Bring the warmth back to the sea
Take the time, take all of myself
Feel the life, breathe into me

Burn the path, stoke the embers
Hear the whisper of the night
There’s a chance for pity’s slumber
This broken wing might still take flight

Breathe into me…
Breathe into me…
Breathe into me…
Track Name: The beginning and the End
There is something calling out…again
And it keeps me hangin’ on
Hangin’ on, hera it callin’
And I know that no one,
Nobody hears, no one but me
What is it sayin’ to me
What is it sayin’ to me

Ooooooooo……….

Hicom Hiyiyo
It’s the bginning and the end of everything I see
Hicom Hiyiyo
And the truth is somewhere deep inside the in between
Hicom Hiyiyo
It’s the bginning and the end of everything I see
Hicom Hiyiyo
And the truth is somewhere deep inside the in between
Hicom hiyiyo
Hicom hiyiyo

Oooooooooo………

Hicom Hiyiyo
It’s the bginning and the end of everything I see

Hicom Hiyiyo

Track Name: Precious People
Find a place , leave a trace
There’s a way to save the precious people
There’s a way to seize the day
There’s a place for the precious people

Strange how it feels, to be
Closer to what’s concealed, and I
Might find a way to resurrect the day

Find a place , leave a trace
There’s a way to save the precious people
There’s a way to seize the day
There’s a place for the precious people

Heard it was fine to be
Closer, to ease my mind
And I might have to stay
Take another way

Find a place , leave a trace
There’s a way to save the precious people
There’s a way to seize the day
There’s a place for the precious people

More than I know, is it
Somewhere I want to go, do i
Care to explain?
It goes against the grain

Find a place , leave a trace
There’s a way
precious people
There’s a way to seize the day
There’s a place for the precious people

Find a place , leave a trace
There’s a way
precious people
Track Name: My Love for You
Sometimes I come
Sometimes I get restless
Sometimes the walls come down
Sometimes I’m cold
Sometimes I am hardened
Sometimes it’s nothing more than you

My love for you

Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I hear angels (my love for you)
Sometimes there’s nothing left to say

My love for you

Nothing more than you
My love for you

My love for you

Sometimes I fall
Sometimes I hear angels
Sometimes there’s nothing more to say
Sometimes I’m cold
Sometimes I am hardened
Sometimes it’s nothing more than you
My love for you
My love for you
My love for you
For you
Track Name: It's a Shame
There’s something very wrong and something you can lose
A little thing inside you say’s you’re gonna have to choose
Something very serious, serious it be
It’s a long-shot baby, but it might be meant to be

You think you got it all, and then you know you don’t
You comin very close now, you’re thinkin that you wont
And soon it’s very obvious, obvious it be
It’s a shame about it baby, that we’ll never get to be

You’re feeling weak, you’re hands are tied into overdrive
It’s a shame, such a big shame
You cannot look, you cannot hide, now it’s amplified
It’s a shame, such a big shame

What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way
What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way

I hear you comin close, I know that it’ll be
A long time baby, when it comes to you and me
Something so mysterious, curious and free
It’s a long shot baby, but it might be meant to be

You’re feeling weak, you’re hands are tied into overdrive
It’s a shame, such a big shame
You cannot look, you cannot hide, now it’s amplified
It’s a shame, such a big shame

What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way
What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way

What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way
What a what a way to go (it’s a shame)
What a what a way

You’re feeling weak, you’re hands are tied into overdrive
It’s a shame, such a big shame
You cannot look, you cannot hide, now it’s amplified
It’s a shame, such a big shame
You’re feeling weak, you’re hands are tied into overdrive
It’s a shame, such a big shame
You cannot look, you cannot hide, now it’s amplified
It’s a shame, such a big shame

There’s something very wrong and something you can lose
A little thing inside you say’s you’re gonna have to choose
Something very serious, serious it be
It’s a long-shot baby, but it might be meant to be

You comin very close now, you’re thinkin that you wont

Track Name: In Search of You
On… my… side…

Underground, now I hear the sound
Turn my head around
And I hear you calling
Run and stumble, heart a-crumble
Hear you tumble and I find you falling
In search of you

Underground, now my heart is bound
To the other sound
And I see you stalling
Run and stumble, heart a-crumble
Hear you tumble and I find you falling
In search of you

Know the call, have the wherewithal
And to climb the wall
Can we both get started
Take my hand to the promised land
It’s written in the sand
I’m broken…hearted
In search of you

Track Name: Say You're Coming Home
Comes a time
Comes a day and time
Comes away, away with me
Comes a place where it all goes by

Say you’re coming home
Say you’re coming home
Say you’re coming home
Say you’re coming home

Had to run
Had to come undone
You belong, belong with me
In this place
Where it all goes by
In this place
Where it all goes by

Say you’re coming home
For the first time for the last time
Say you’re coming home…da da da…da da da
Say you’re coming home
For this one time is a life time
Say you’re coming home…da da da….da da da

Say you’re coming home
Say you’re coming home
Say you’re coming home
Home….oooo

Say you’re coming home
For the first time, for the last time
Say you’re coming home
La la la ….la la la
Say you’re coming home
For this one time is a lifetime
Home

Say you’re coming …da da da, da da da……home
Where it all goes by
Say you’re coming home
Say you’re, say you’re…comin home
Where it all goes by
