In This Single Olivia Mae Graham Finds Red Flags Look A Lot Like a “Red Rose”

"Red Rose" by Olivia Mae Graham

“Red Rose” is the latest release from emerging country artist Olivia Mae Graham. Hailing from southern Ontario, the Canadian country songstress’ latest single is full of quick witted lyrics and catchy songwriting that blends pop, rock, and country into one heartbreak anthem.

Olivia Mae’s discography has focused on romantic love songs and tracks with empowering positive messages to create an authentic connection with her fans. But this latest release showcases Olivia’s growth as an artist.

In “Red Rose” Olivia challenges herself to tap into new genres and connect with her fiery side to flourish as a songwriter.

Booming drums propel this up-tempo track through the chorus with rustic electric guitar riffs bringing a gritty element to the pop-country anthem. Super fun acoustic guitar sprinkled throughout the track sweetens the song with the small town country sound we all love.

“Red Rose” is bursting with swinging melodies, clever lyrics, and fun country twang illuminated by Olivia’s strength as a vocalist. Her performance manages to be both airy yet grounded reflecting her strong bubbly personality.

A huge fan of Taylor Swift, Olivia Mae’s music captures the essence of Swift’s early work, crafting hook driven, pop inspired country with sharp lyrics and a feminine flair.

In “Red Rose” Olivia Mae breaks down the rocky journey to accepting that idealized love will always turn sour.

Of the latest release Olivia said “I was raised to play it safe when it came to falling in love, but I learned quickly that it can be a lonely game … Now I know when it comes to love you can’t be the one to make anyone else change. When writing and recording this song we wanted to turn that lesson into an anthem. I have learned that the red flags you see in a relationship won’t ever turn into that red rose that they appear to be.”
