Rouse first learned to play his guitar from his uncle when he was very young, and began writing his own songs when he was 18 years old. Last year's album Nashville came at a time when Rouse was saying goodbye to both the country music capital and to his marriage.

Rouse talks about what happened after that goodbye: moving to the small Spanish seaside town of Valencia, falling in love, and how his sound changed along the way.
