Artist of the Month: Amy Rose – by Cadence Grace

It is easy to get caught up in this world of music. For many of us working deep in the business, the pursuit of our passions often causes us to miss opportunities to experience other, more personal avenues in life. In this fast paced industry, the thought of taking a hiatus – even a brief one – is as alluring as it is frightening. For some, it is the beginning of the eventual end of their pursuits. For others, it is only the beginning. For Amy Rose, her several year hiatus was a well timed, well executed period of growth that allowed her to maintain her promise to become a rounded, multi-talented artist.

Hailing from Barrie, Ontario, Amy Rose kicked off her career early and began singing around age 5. Her early days were filled with various performances and singing competitions where she was able to hone her performance and vocal abilities, leading to the release of her first independent record at the young age of 13. Now, with a third record soon to be under her belt, a new family, and more inspiration than ever, Amy Rose is digging her heels back in and proving she was worth the wait.

“Party Like a Redneck (redneck reunion)” was released in 2012 and got people talking about the girl with the big voice. When it started getting some serious love from radio, and a rotation nod from CMT for its quirky and cool video, Rose was off to the races!

“I Just Want You To Know”, the next single from her forthcoming album, is a pop-country cover of a song originally recorded by the Backstreet Boys. Produced by Glenn Coulson and Marty Beecroft, the song features some heavy-hitting Nashville players. Rose’s vocals stand out with an edgy individual sound that has hints of Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, and Carrie Underwood.

Already receiving critical acclaim from the industry and radio alike, “I Just Want You To Know” lights the way for Rose’s third record to be her best yet. Her growth as an artist during her hiatus is blatant and respectable, and Ontario country music fans should be anxiously anticipating what new musical creations will be coming our way from Amy Rose in the future!
