Rosie Flores (born September 10, 1950 in San Antonio, Texas) is a rockabilly and country music artist.

She currently resides in Austin, Texas, where August 31 was declared Rosie Flores Day by the Austin City Council in 2006.[1]

Biography[edit]

Guitarist Rosie Flores was the namesake of the punk rock band Rosie and the Screamers before joining a rowdy countrified all-female band called Screamin' Sirens.[2] The latter band produced a series of 7-inch singles and tracks for compilation albums before releasing a single full-length recording in 1987, an album called Voodoo.

In 1995, she joined Wanda Jackson on a coast-to-coast North American tour.[3] She toured as a member of Asleep at the Wheel in 1997.[4]

She has appeared on Austin City Limits and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
