Dominique Pruitt is an American singer-songwriter. Even My Roses Are Blue, her new single, evokes nostalgia. Acts like Ricky Nelson and Roy Orbison influenced the sound. A stellar vocal performance accompanies the instrumental. Lyrics have a thoughtful quality to them.
“Inspiration can strike any place. Pretty sure I saw dyed blue roses at the market and thought of the title,” Pruitt tells American Songwriter, with a laugh. “But really, when you’re breaking up, it feels like the whole world is tinged with a somber hue. I thought, ‘If your whole world is so blue with sadness and heartache, that even the roses are blue.’ This song came from an urge to write something very retro at that moment.”
