Biography

The second full length CD from Rock artist Jennifer Rose is
well under way!

Lyrics for Faith, Love & Rock n Roll are
coming together with 8 songs completed and another dozen in various stages.

 

The best lyrics are always based on personal experience and Jennifer's tend to touch on life, death, conquering the unknown, and, much like Jennifer, served with a side of playful attitude. But underlying the stories are messages of  inspiration & empowerment, of living life on your own terms, overcoming whatever or whoever attempts to keep you down, of believing in miracles & dreams-come-true, but more importantly, being the catalyst that makes them come true. Life IS the journey and the size of the obstacles define how great your achievements. If you can see it, you can achieve it. And the stars in the sky burn very clearly these days.

As always, each of Jennifer's lyrics are woven with a well-defined soundtrack in her mind. As a classically trained vocalist with a 3+ octave range, Jennifer likes her rock melodic using a wide dynamic range with soaring melodies and anthemic choruses. For "Faith, Love & Rock n Roll" the music will be modern rock with occasional elements of hard rock, blues and punk. If you listen closely you may also hear an occasional nod to a few recently discovered influential sounds from the 70s.


From a very early age music was everything to me. There was nothing else that I cared so deeply about. It was more than just a way for me to express myself whenever I was happy, sad, lonely, love struck, angry, etc. I never thought about fame, only how amazing it would be to make my whole world about music. When you care that strongly about anything you simply know there is no option other than to dedicate your life to it.


Although I am a classically trained vocalist and have performed & recorded in a dozen different genres, I love Rock! Rock comes with a different attitude than other genres. Rock represents strength, an attitude that says "I live my life for ME, on MY own terms. And if you don't like it, you can kiss it!" As a female artist it is important to me that I write songs that appeal to both sexes and that I write with a strong opinion & stance.


"If ever Debbie Harry got in bed with Lemmy then lil' Jen would be their bitchin' offspring."

    - Rob Evans, Power Play Magazine (UK)


"The relentless rocking is putting most of her male counterparts to full-on shame."

    - Rock Report - Belgium


Jennifer Rose was born & raised near the sun-splashed shores of San Diego. Her first public appearance as a singer was a spontaneous event at the age of three when she snuck away from her parents at a mall and was later found standing on a bench singing to a growing crowd. There were many more appearances over the years, most much more organized. At the age of 16 Jennifer joined her first regularly gigging band performing in the bars of San Diego. This was her induction into the world as a full time singer. For many years Jennifer pursued her training and performing up & down the coast of southern California and as far away as Toronto, Canada.


In 2007, Warner Bros. Records NY contacted Jennifer. After two days of meetings and discussions both parties had outlined a verbal plan to move forward. Shortly after this Warner cut most of their A&R staff, and with it, all artists in the pipeline.


"Jennifer's "I Go A Little Mental" beat out Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" yesterday."

    - JJ Star, 100.1 The Edge, Los Angeles


Disappointed but determined, this was the catalyst that triggered Jennifer Rose to turn her demo into her first full length CD, Alone & Unsupervised. With much of the lyrical content completed, the ten song CD was co-written and recorded over ten days in New York & New Jersey.


Jennifer Rose songs are heard on 50+ radio stations in the US, Europe, Canada, South America and Japan and featured between live bands at FireFest (UK). Magazine interviews include Muen Magazine and Metal Pit in the US, Power Play magazine in the UK, Hard Metal Forces magazine in Japan, and Legends Magazine in Canada.
In the fall of 2013 CBS used a song co-written by Jennifer Rose in their radio ad for the TV show "Two Broke Girls".

Lyrics

I Go A Little Mental

Written By: Jennifer Rose/Kevin Patrick

Thoughts of you keep comin’ fillin’ up my head.
Keep thinking about you with her, when you should be with me instead.
All I think about, all I want.
I fixate, fixate until I’m feelin’ sick!

I Go a Little Mental (3x),
Starting to sound Insane,
I Go A little Mental. I Go a Little Mental.
You’re the One, You’re the One, You’re the One I blame.

Through the window you caught my eye,
reeled me in with your sweet, sweet lies.
Gotta keep it together, it’s an act I know.
You’re deep inside of me, this just ain’t right.
You say that I’m obsessed and I’ve got you in my sights.
You’ve ripped into my heart, you know, you know!

I Go A little Mental (3xs),
Starting to sound insane.
I Go A little Mental. I Go a Little Mental.
You’re the One, You’re the One, You’re the One I blame!

You should have never looked my way, come and take this pain away.
Can’t eat, can’t sleep, gonna give you everything.
The only thing that matters to me, I have no shame.
I’ll do whatever it takes, to make you feel the same!!!

Go A Little Mental,
I Go A Little Mental,
I Go A Little Mental, starting to sound insane.
I Go A Little Mental,
I Go A Little Mental, You’re the One, You’re the One, You’re the One, You’re the One.
I Go A Little Mental
(Repeat out)

Toe 2 Toe

Written By: Jennifer Rose

It's such a shame, you like to pretend
Always runnin' your mouth, it's got to end.
You made the mistake of getting in my face.
You're out of line, you're out of place.
You think you're hot, but you're not!
Bring it on! Show me what you got!

chorus
I will go, Toe 2 Toe!
You wanna mess with me?
Come on, get in the ring.
Feel the sting, feel the blow.
Trust me, you never want to know.
I will go...
Toe 2 Toe.

verse
You thought you could kick me 'round.
Thought one sucker punch would take me to the ground.
You think you're tough, but I'm tougher still.
Thought you'd win, but you never will.
I'm bringin' somethin' you'd never expect.
The pain is one thing you'll never forget.
I won't quit 'til your blood runs cold.
Then that's it.
Now you know!

chorus
I will go, Toe to Toe!
You wanna mess with me?
Come on, get in the ring.
Feel the sting, feel the blow.
Trust me, you never want to know.
I will go...
Toe 2 Toe.

bridge
I'll never fade to black.
I'm always comin' back.
You better watch what you do,
I'll always be two steps ahead of you!

* guitar solo *

chorus
I will go, Toe 2 Toe!
You wanna mess with me?
Come on, get in the ring!
Feel the sting, feel the blow.
Trust me, you never want to know.
I will go...
Toe 2 toe!

Bad Bad Cowboy

Written By: Jennifer Rose

It's a game you like to play.
Dressed in black like your Jesse James.
Every good 'n bad girls dream,
on your suicide machine.
With that look like you just don't care,
I could tell that you weren't from here.
But that's what I call fun,
as they all turn around and run!

chorus
'Cuz he's a Bad, Bad Cowboy.
Get out of his way!
He's a wanted outlaw.
And he's wanted by me.
He's always looking for a showdown.
He's always looking for a fight.
Well, he just met his match tonight.

verse 2
There's a bounty on your head.
I'll be the one to bring you in.
'Cuz your streaks about to end,
and you're not getting away again.
So now you have to do your time,
'cuz you're a prisoner of mine.
Never thought you'd fall in love,
but I'm the one who strung you up!

chorus
'Cuz he's a Bad, Bad Cowboy!
Get out of his way!
He's a wanted outlaw.
and he's wanted by me.
He's always looking for a showdown.
He's always looking for a fight.
Well, he just met his match tonight.

break

chorus
'Cuz he's a Bad, Bad Cowboy!
Get out of his way!
He's a wanted outlaw
and he's wanted by me.
He's always looking for a showdown.
He's always looking for a fight.
Well, he just met his match tonight.

'Cuz I'm a Bad, Bad Cowboy.
Get out of my way.
I'm a wanted outlaw.
And I'm wanted by him.
I'm always looking for a showdown!
I'm always looking for a fight!
Well, you just met your match tonight!
Tonight!

Fire Me Up!

Written By: Jennifer Rose

Got this feeling coming over me.
It's like a burnin' down in my soul
Can't take the day to day.
Can't take much more of the same.
I'm a prisoner locked in these chains,
prayin' something soon will change.
Burnin' the candle at both ends,
need some time out with my friends!

pre-chorus
fire me up, fire me up

chorus
Fire Me Up! Come and turn me on!
Fire me up! Rock me all night long!
Fire me up! Been workin' long & hard!
Fire me up! 'Cuz I've come so far!
Fire me up! I've paid my dues!
Fire me up! Now I'm cuttin' loose!
Fire me up!
Come on and Fire me up!

verse 2
It doesn't matter where you're from.
It doesn't matter what you do.
Your star shines bright, and so does mine.
Feel the surge, feel the fire.
Tonight the sparks are gonna fly!
Streaks of light will fill the sky!
Flames will blaze, burnin' high!
Take our troubles to the sky!

pre-chorus
fire me up, fire me up

chorus
Fire Me Up! Come and turn me on!
Fire me up! Rock me all night long!
Fire me up! Been working long & hard!
Fire me up! 'Cuz I've come so far!
Fire me up! I've paid my dues!
Fire me up! And now I'm cuttin' loose!
Fire me up!
Come on and Fire me up!

Fire me up, Fire me Up
Fire me Up, Fire Me up

Fire me up, Come and turn me on!
Fire me up, Rock me all night long!
Fire me up, turn me on!
Fire me up, Rock me all night long!
Fire me up, come on and Fire me up!

Rock n Roll Lover

Written By: Jennifer Rose

I'm infatuated.
Don't know if it's love.
You've got a hold on me.
I can't get enough.
My most prized possession.
My brand new obsession.
You're my favorite flavor.
The kind I like to savor.

chorus
Rock & Roll is my lover.
Took so long to discover
that I don't need any other.
You fill my fantasy!
You're my Ecstasy!

verse 2
You've always lived in my heart.
Now I see I am what you are.
I feel the rush in my veins.
You're in my blood,
I'll never be the same.
Before you my world was grim.
But that's all changed
now that you've come in.
You give me wings when I need to fly!
Rise above, leave this world for a while!

chorus
Rock & Roll is my lover.
Took so long to discover
that I don't need any other.
You fill my fantasy!
You're my Ecstasy!

bridge
Now I'm in too deep.
This feeling is so sweet.
So I take it, shake it.
Like a spell, I can't break it.
'Cuz you squeeze me, tease me.
Only you know how to please me!

verse 3
My, favorite love.
I keep you close,
like fingers in a glove.
I want you all night and day.
The only thing, my guitar,
knows how to play!

chorus
Rock & Roll is my lover.
Took so long to discover
that I don't need any other.
You fill my fantasy!
You're my Ecstasy!
My Ecstasy now!
