Bio

Make no mistake, Essex-based singer songwriter Sharon Rose is about to be huge and by all counts she deserves to be. With her new single L.O.V.E launching 6th of July 2009, this 19-year-old girl, with an incredible old school meets popular culture sound, is on the verge of superstar status.

Born in Zimbabwe, Sharon Rose has been in love with music from as far back as she can remember. Growing up the third of four children in a musical family (both Sharon's parents are singers); Sharon has always felt a special connection with music. "I firmly believe that God wrote it in the stars for me to make music," she says. "As a young girl I always dreamt of being a singer and performing in front of thousands and even millions of people. I've always felt it in my heart that making music was my thing."

She was about six years old the first time she performed in public and it was then that the Southend girl knew that she was born to do this. "From a very young age, my parents encouraged all four of us to pursue our music," she remembers. "But they also encouraged us to do something else academically as a back up plan, but music always came first."

Performing in church helped hone her talent and it wasn't long before she was performing at musical concerts, talent shows and in school productions like Grease and The Matchstick Girls. Since then, she has been on a roll; teaching herself to write songs and releasing her debut album, 'Self Titled', independently in 2007.

Now aged 19 and with a string of live performances at concerts and events under her belt, Sharon is an exciting, lovable and daring artist here to challenge the status quo. Her new single L.O.V.E. is a super fun and universally appealing pop offering that brings thoughts of summer to mind. Drawing on inspiration from her musical influences (like Beyonce, India Arie and Coldplay), her fun mix of R&B, jazz, soul, rock, funk and 80's pop have already helped to give her a bit of a reputation on the live scene, where she’s a regular at venues such as the Jazz Café, Pigalle Club and The Brixton Jamm.

With a rich and soulful voice, she is often compared to the likes of Jill Scott and Beyonce and she takes listeners on an emotional rollercoaster through her songs that explores love, empowerment, social justice and topical issues.

"I don't just want to make feel-good music that has no substance," she explains. "I want people to be inspired, encouraged and empowered by my songs. I want them to listen and know that it's something they've never heard before but that it's daring, catchy and helps them feel like they can touch the sky."

As well as being seriously gorgeous, Sharon Rose is also super talented. She recently won the MSN Unsigned podcast competition and is currently in the studio recording her new album and getting ready for life in the limelight.

Sharon Rose is a new voice to be welcomed and very much a relevant artist for her generation.
