Rosita Stone Biography

You know how sometimes you go out thinking you have a good idea what you're in for, only to have your expectations turned upside-down, shaken around and completely exceeded?

That's Rosita Stone, a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in fragments of broken mirror wrapped in a spicy enchilada. She's Canuck multi-culti, being of Mexican-Russian descent - a Gypsy Aztec temple singer with a Tori Amos yen for turning stuff inside out.

A tireless self-starter, Rosita writes, arranges, and produces her material, keeping it exotic, honest and spiritual. Critics have placed her sound somewhere between folk, primal and the ethereal, although comparisons are somewhat dubious - she's truly unique.

The essence of her music is emotional, the appeal universal, the delivery inclusive, evocative and unforgettable. As a songwriter, Rosita isn't afraid to delve into the messiest of human emotions, and is able to turn out a lyric that is simultaneously poignant and vengeful. As a performer, she's got watchability to the max - whether accompanying herself on guitar or piano or backed by a full band, you can't take your eyes off her once she kicks into a song.

Her track record includes being an up and coming success story in Latin America in 2005 where she was the opening act for Latin folk Superstar "Carlos Vives" to audiences of more than 12 thousand people. In Toronto it was heralded as the Latin Concert of the Year for 2005. She's charted in Colombia at Number 2 and Number 4, a Number in Chile and 2 Number ones's in Hispanic Toronto. Rosita has just returned from an extensive promotional tour in Colombia including interviews with Rolling Stone Latin, performing live on many tv shows such as on Citytv/Muchmusic for a viewing audience of 50 million, where she also received an award for her 2 videos both reaching the Top 5 and in top rotation for 32 weeks consecutive. Both videos were shot live at the Rivoli club in Toronto and were initially meant for promotion on her website only! You can view these videos on her website.

Things are continuing to look up for Rosita as Universal music has picked up her self produced indie CD "The Real Deal" for a five country distribution deal in Latin America (via her licencee Easy Entertainment in Colombia. As an indie artist, her CD is available in Canada.

In Canada the CBC and 106.5 Aboriginal Voices Radio is playing her music. In latin America, both main stream and niche radio are spinning her tracks including the 40-country major Transcontinental Radio station called RADIO LA W where she was interviewed by the notoriously famous Latin American host Julio Sánchez Cristo. His comments about Rosita were truly spectacular, likening her to some of the most successful artists in the world such as Norah Jones, Joss Stone and Shakira. She's been pressed by everybody from Entertainment Tonight Online and Reuters to The Toronto Star, NOW and METRO Toronto, receiving press and coverage from the local papers to the largest newswires, tv shows, and magazines such as TVGrama (the Latin equivalent to People Magazine), EFE (the Spanish equivalent to Reuters) Hoy (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles), Much Music and Citytv Bogotá, TLN and the list continues to grow. Rosita Stone has accomplished all of this as a Canadian independent artist through sheer determination and not stop work ethics.
