Rose Hawley has been a performer all her life. Starting out like many southern girls do, by singing and playing at church. She began performing professionally in High School in a short-lived cover band, playing picnics and special events. By the time she was 22, she was a regular performer in the musical scene in Gatlinburg, TN, playing piano and guitar.
In the 1990's she was the premiere performer at Ivory's, a local hang-out in Knoxville, TN. She played there for 8 years, and has been an active part of the Knoxville music scene for over 20 years. She is a big fan of open mics, and believe in supporting the local music scene. As well, she is an avid songwriter, writing her first song at the age of 9. She teaches piano and is currently with a couple of projects: Rose & Rhodes, an acoustic duo, with Stephen Rhodes, and JigSaw, a 3-piece (currently) project including Stephen Rhodes and Terry Phillips.
She is available for private parties/weddings/events as a solo performer, or with any of her ongoing projects.
