Virginia Rose Band / Bio

Virginia Rose Band is an Alternative Rock band from the Tampa Bay, FL area. Their catchy, well written songs and highly entertaining performances have captivated audiences gaining them numerous fans and supporters throughout their home state. They have recently kicked off their first National tour and will be performing in cities all over the country throughout the Summer of 2015.

After the November 2014 release of their self-produced debut album, Make Believe, they began a series of performances throughout the state of Florida to promote the album. Due to the success of their shows, they decided to take their tour across state lines. Self-funded by album and merchandise sales, VRB continues to travel the country and perform at as many shows as they can manage to book.

The band continues to write new material to add to their already sizable arsenal of completed songs. The songwriting keeps getting better and their best material has yet to be recorded. When the band returns home from tour at the end of Summer 2015, they will be ready to hit the studio and record their next album.

Virginia Rose is a singer/songwriter from Largo, Florida who originally found her roots as a classically trained violinist. Having earned a scholarship and countless awards as a child, Virginia began writing lyrics and singing, which is where she found her true talent. With lyrical craftsmanship and musical composition skills that most artists can only dream about, Virginia Rose is the kind of singer/songwriter that writers like Taylor Swift aspire to be. From somber to brash and melodic to chaotic, Virginia Rose's music transcends any genre with its originality.

Formed in early 2010, Virginia Rose Band got its start when Virginia Rose, who was writing and performing hooks for rappers at a local studio, met drummer/producer Ryan Dutton, who had just started his own recording studio in a nearby space. Both looking to form their own projects, the duo ultimately decided to team together. As they created music and worked with various local musicians in an effort to create the right team, the Virginia Rose Band name organically came about and simply stuck. After a few line up changes to find just the right mix, VRB has continued on to pack shows and captivate audiences every where they perform.
