"A Kiss from Miss Virginia Rose"

In the deep, dark days of a rainy Vancouver winter, Virginia Rose was snipping off split ends at a waterfront hair salon making ends meet while playing some small shows around town. When the time finally came for her make or break decision, Virginia packed up her gear and traded in her scissors for a full time guitar pick. The only way to make her dreams a success was to go after them, and there was no better time. After getting herself back in the groove of playing shows around town, Virginia sought management to make her deep rooted love of music into a full time career.

Over the past 6 months Virginia’s following has gone from her family members and crowds at local open mics to a devoted draw that come to support each and every show sometimes more than once a week. Skilled on a six string, classically trained on the piano, and a heavy hitting beat boxer/mouth percussionist, Virginia ties in her impressive range of vocals through a loop pedal to bring you a one-woman show that is truly unique. Her songwriting speaks from a place of raw emotion from past experiences, tapping into places of the heart that are rarely touched outside of a well written song. Her style is a folk-pop/soul-hop sound that gets your feet tapping and your soul smiling.

She recently showcased for Interscope Records at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC. It then became necessary for her to be adaptable to larger venues, and, despite her solo sound floating to the tops of the highest rafters in town, a full band was the next natural step. Fronting this new band gave Virginia an added level of spunk and freed her to bring a new level of stage persona to each of her full band shows. Free to move around and interact more with the band and crowd throughout each song allows her personality to fully shine through - and what a personality it is!

Virginia’s love of music has been more than enough to propel her to great heights already. She’s featured at smaller venues around town on a recurring basis, was asked to return for a featured showcase at Vancouver FanClub on March 19th, and is bringing her full band out to perform for Warner Bros Records this coming April. She's busy working on her first EP with a local producer, and planning a tour for early summer. Virginia's spirit is one that, despite her struggles and pain, was meant to soar, and her voice is taking her to new heights. Now that the spotlight is on her, she’s more than ready to step forward and see where this crazy road we call ‘the business’ will take her. - www.gastownrecords.com


Still working on that hot first release.



The epitome of following the sun while others wait in the rain, Miss Virginia Rose is ready for the world to feel her light. Virginia’s tale is one like many other artists before her who have channeled their pain and struggle and turned to the world of singing/song writing as a form of personal therapy. Growing up in Burnaby, British Columbia with a brother and sister Virginia was introduced to the music scene earlier than most, and by early, she says “onstage in my mom’s belly while she played bass”.
Virginia started playing guitar and writing her songs at the young age of 8. Picking up a trumpet and then being classically trained on the piano presented the opportunity for her to create her own one woman stage show. Virginia’s world revolved around music whether it was her own song writing and rehearsals or being taken down to the studio or on the road with her dad, a lead guitarist for over 50 years. After meeting one night at a show and falling in love, Virginia’s parents got the chance to begin playing together in an act they called “Southern Star” with her mom, a native Texan, on bass guitar and lead vocals. Unfortunately, the life of a rock star isn’t as romantic as it sounds, and the couple split up leaving Virginia with feelings of abandonment and loneliness. The split turned Virginia for the worst and for once in her life left her angry and rebellious as a teen.
Luckily, Virginia has the ultimate gift of taking any situation and spinning it positively with a bright smile across her face. Despite feeling wronged and deeply alone, Virginia channelled all of the negativity in her life and really began focusing on her song writing career. She also taught herself to become an avid mouth percussionist and beat boxer. With the use of her loop pedal Virginia can produce a sound that not only fills the stage all on her own but the hearts of her audience as well.
Music has the incredible ability to connect those that feel left out. It allows for the lonely to seek refuge within words of songs that seemingly came straight from all our hearts. Virginia sought that place of safety. It connected her with others who shared her same dream of creating art and music to share with the world. Virginia’s sweet soulful vocals paired with her funky guitar and keys lends her the creative edge she needs to captivate an audience of all backgrounds. Miss Virginia Rose is here and ready to take the stage to spread the sunshine she knows the people need to get through their hard times. With a feel of soul/pop funk/hop she’ll have you up and dancing as you groove to her story and dreams of what’s to come next.
