Bio

With eloquent lyrics and strong and often haunting melodies, Kay's soft rock / adult contemporary songs are a hauntingly beautiful journey through heartfelt territory. Rose writes songs derived from deep introspection and a profound curiosity about human conditions and life's ironies. Music has been her passion since she was a little girl, providing a refuge as her parents moved constantly. Raising a son from a very young age, she has faced many romantic twists, losses, and setbacks. But Rose continues to be a fighter, a survivor, a hopeful romantic, and a never ending optimist, all of which come through in her music.

Rose’s debut CD, “Words Left Unsaid”, is an elegantly packaged and produced collection of soft rock / adult contemporary songs that will linger in your mind long after you have heard them. Though at times reaching emotional depths, it is laced throughout with optimism and intelligence. It features the brilliant playing and co-production of renowned guitarist Jeff Pevar on a number of tunes. Jeff is best known for being a member of the band CPR with David Crosby and David's son, James Raymond.

Rose delivers a powerful performance with heart, skill, soul, and artistic passion. She has a unique sound that may feel somewhere between Sarah McLachlan and Suzanne Vega, with an artistic moody edge, but the girl next door songwriter appeal. She is inspired by the above mentioned, in addition to Joni Mitchell, Paula Cole, Karla Bonoff, Aimee Mann, Barbara Higbie, and many more.
