10 September 1950, San Antonio, Texas, USA. Flores background accounts for the strong Mexican influence in her brand of country music. When she was 12 years old, her family moved to San Diego, California, and in her mid-teens Flores became part of an all-female psychedelic band, Penelopes Children. She was then backed by a punk band, Rosie And The Screamers. Next came another all-female cow-punk band, the Screamin Sirens. In 1985, she was part of a compilation album of new country artists, A Town South Of Bakersfield, on which she sang Heartbreak Train with Albert Lee. Her first album for Reprise Records, Rosie Flores, was produced with Pete Anderson and Dwight Yoakam, but her biggest single on the US country charts, Crying Over You, only reached number 51. Dropped by Reprise, she re-emerged five years later on Hightone with After The Farm. Flores remains one of those Texas artists more popular as a cult performer in Europe...
