Glitter Rose / Press

“Imagine Joan Jett replacing Bon Jovi during his Young Guns phase. Glitter Rose is a contemporary rock/country hybrid that should appeal to fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Paramore alike. She excels at writing a strong hook. "Kody Was A Killer" is a good illustration of not only that but a strong use of descriptors and character development.”

“Glitter Rose has a great, pounding Southern-rock / bluesy style of playing and a sultry, greasy, smoky voice to lead those huge guitar sounds. She’s powerful. It only takes a minute to catch it. “Tennessee Time” is a bit of a departure from what we’ve come to expect from the left-handed six-string slinger. Much more “Nashville” than “LA,” she stuck to her roots of making the song’s sounds fit the lyric. Great guitars, some steel licks and that shuffle beat drive the tune mixing up Strat and Humbucker sounds.”

"Vodka Girls" by Glitter Rose - This song is about leaving a miserable job to go and have a good time on a Tuesday night. That in itself would be enough. However, the girl described in this song isn't content to knock a few back on a weeknight. No, the girl in this song likes to get her vodka at the bar and keep a spare in the trunk just in case the bartender is a little stingy in his or her pour. (Although it's hard to imagine a bartender giving a short pour to a girl who is ready to party). If you're one of those professional girls that likes to have a good time, add this song to your party playlist.

“As our student followers venture into a new semester this month, I would like to provide the perfect soundtrack to their fresh new start. The “Summer’s End Playlist” recaps the best of our discoveries over the past few months, including artists who scored an interview and a few deserving musicians we have yet to cover. It samples music from several different genres including pop, folk, country, rock, rap, electronic and easy listening. If you’ve finally grown sick of the summer’s pop hits, take an hour or so to check these guys out:”

“The hits just keep on coming for Glitter Rose with her pop friendly sound and its country rock basis. The latest single “American Girl” may be the breakout she needs to reach the rest of America. The lyrics tell a common story that can be relatable for many. The chorus is powerful and will be bouncing around your head for days.”

“The newest track release American Girl from Texas rocker Glitter Rose proves that women of the millennium, now more than ever are ruthless contenders, musically armed and ready to maintain their stronghold among the greatest acts of all time.”

“Glitter Rose’s music is breaking ground as the new sound of Southern Rock meets Country. In 2013, the 28-year-old Texan was recognized with two awards including Best Rock Artist and she received the Album of the Year Award for Dead or Alive at the 2013 Artists In Music Awards in Hollywood, CA. In April, Glitter took home four additional awards for Artist of the Year, Performer of the Year, Best Southern Rock Artist, and Best Music Video at the 3rd Annual Artists In Music Awards held at Jon Lovitz Theatre in Hollywood, CA on Friday, February 7, 2014. This award winning country southern rock artist is continually on the rise, and we got the chance to ask her a few questions about her music career here exclusively on Entertwine!”

“About a year ago, I started catching the tail ends of posts and articles concerning a certain “Outlaw Rocker” from Texas. An interesting title, I thought, but just left it at that. I came across this artist’s name once again when I began following the “Artists in Music Awards“, an awards ceremony for emerging artists based out of Los Angeles. They called her Glitter Rose. She wore a cowboy hat and jeans, enormous belt buckles almost as shiny as her smile and, always, a guitar. Everything about her screamed “TEXAS”, from her clothing and state tattoo to her dusty desert music videos. I had to know more.”

“MuzicNotez: Working on anything new? What can we expect from you in the future? Glitter Rose: In 2014, I’ll be taking on other artists to produce. This is a vision I’ve had for quite some time, and during the recording process of my album “Dead or Alive” I was able to mentor with Dran Michael and really discovered that production is a field I’d like to be more involved in. I want to bring out in recordings that spark I see in artists as they perform their music live. I want people to feel the moment, as if they were in the audience, when they listen to their records. For my music, I have plans to film a short film/music video with Amy Campione for my song “Kody Was A Killer”, place more of my music in TV and film, and record my 3rd full-length album.”

“A little bit o’ country. A little o’ blues. Throw in a healthy dose of rock ‘n roll sass and you’ve got Glitter Rose. We met this self-professed ‘outlaw southern rocker’ at the Gibson Showroom in Beverly Hills, where she was performing for a charity concert to help fight breast cancer. “I just do what I do and there are certain people who step up and support it. With their help, we’re able to make things happen that I can be proud of. The fact that we’re able to give 100% of tonight’s proceeds to charity is what it’s all about. It’s not about making money. It’s not about publicity. It’s about supporting a cause and having everyone here enjoy a fun, nice night.””

“It was a ripper of a show today! GLITTER ROSE rocked the house! She is not only very talented but is an awesome interviewee! This is only a very small part of how the show went...”

“Among the celebrities and Hollywood community in attendance Thursday night were the executive producer of the LA Music Awards Al Bowman, Tom Slack (up for multiple AIMA, LAMA, and Grammy nomination considerations this year), author Jon Woodwood (who is debuting his new book “Hidden Valley” later in August), movie stuntman Raynald La Rochelle, rock artist Glitter Rose, LA Comedy Awards executive producer Max Worthington, fashion designer Eugene Sidney, actor Pete Pietri, author Anna Azabi, actor Albert Serrato...”

“Glitter Rose, nominated for “Best Rock Artist” and “Album of the Year" for Dead or Alive, won big last night, carrying both competitive categories and giving another excellent stage performance. “I just can’t believe that I also won Album of the Year tonight!” exclaimed Rose to the press, “This is such an honor for me. I never would have expected it this year even though I put my heart and soul into this album production. I am so thankful that AIMA recognized the music on this album.” Glitter Rose’s career has been highlighted by many awards as she has also won the LAMA in the past. “Many record labels wanted her to switch to pop, but she stayed true to her music and never gave in. She loves rock music and will always excel in rock,” explains her manager. Industry experts agree, stating that Rose feels comfortable in her musical genre and appears to be having fun with her work on stage.”

“Kiva: What about YOU, makes you an "outlaw" Southern Rocker? GR: I don't play by any rules. I play what I want and what I feel, which often goes against the rules of any songwriting format, image, or genre I should fit into. I like to push the limits to get my message across. Sometimes playing it safe, you go unheard.”

“Glitter Rose can no doubt be seen as a veteran to the rock and country genres; her work is fantastic and reflecting both of these genres and her songs sound secure and fantastic. I highly recommend people to listen to her music.”

“The final artist to take the stage was none other than the No. 1 Most Requested Artist of the Year, Glitter Rose. As Glitter stepped onto the Voodoo Lounge stage, all you noticed was her Cowboy hat, her big Texas sized belt buckle, and her trusty guitar. She did however, brought her most important instrument of all, her confidence and her fans. The crowd tightened close to the stage and she began her set with the number song, “Kody Was a Killer”. It was from that moment, you could tell that she won the showcase.”

“My journey has been long, hard, beautiful and remarkable. It started when I was 13. I was born in the Mojave Desert in California. I moved with my oldest sister, Mary, to my dad’s house in Ft. Worth, TX. From there we dove into the music business, recording my first album, putting together a live band and starting to perform live. We were very green and didn’t know a thing about the music industry. Over the years, we learned many lessons, and met lots of people along the way who mentored us and taught us various aspects of the business”

“Glitter Rose had a rockin' CD Release Party for her latest effort Dead or Alive at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, CA.”

“The music of Glitter Rose is outlaw Southern rock, a perfect blend of country and rock-n-roll with an outlaw attitude. Her message carries emotion. “Whether its a story about someone I know, or an experience in my own life, every story I tell evokes real emotion,” says Rose. “You can feel it in everything from the lyrics to the chords I choose and the way I play them.””
