"Who's Next?"

Amber Rose

Don’t be fooled by Amber Rose’s age. The soon to be 18-year-old has been involved in the entertainment industry since most of her friends were riding big wheels. Rose, a California native, landed her first acting gig on a TV movie called “Face Of Love” when she was only four. Although she was nominated for a Youth In Film Award, Rose drifted toward poetry and music to satisfy her artistic cravings. By the age of 12 she was writing her own songs and playing guitar. Now, the recent high school graduate, is playing solo shows in the L.A. area including ones at 14 Below, The Accept and Respect Festival and The Rainbow Bar & Grill.


Five Questions for Amber Rose

1) At 11-years-old kids are usually playing tag, not writing poetry. What sparked your interest in that?
“I had just started at a new school and was taking an art class. My teacher knew I wasn’t able to draw so he suggested poetry might be a better artistic outlet. I had been through a lot by then emotionally and it was a great way for me to express my feelings.”

2) Tell us about your first solo gig that prepared you for the L.A. club circuit.
“I played in my H.S. auditorium in front of 150 people and scared to death. But I made it through. It was the most amazing experience I ever had. Now when I play, its in bars with people drinking and screaming. I still get nervous, but love to perform.”

3) What’s the story behind “Don’t let go”?
“It’s a song about a friend I had in middle-school that committed suicide. A very emotional song on a very sad topic. On my website I have links for suicide and drug prevention. It’s something I feel people need to start paying more attention to.”

4) You have a catalog of over 30 songs. Is there a sense of urgency to get into a studio and get them recorded? Definitely, that’s what I’m trying to do right now. I’m actually using Craigslist to find some bandmates that I can collaborate with. I would love the opportunity to play with some people and show another side of me.”

5) Currently, you’re using the internet as a second option to get your music across to the masses. Do you feel that is a good way for unsigned musicians to break into the industry?
“Definitely. Although I feel performing live does give you the best chances at getting noticed. It just gives you another option.”
