Melody Rose is a singer/songwriter from New York. Melody has been fortunate to have many prestigious opportunities, such as touring Europe on two occasions and performing at various music conferences and festivals along the east coast. Rose recently opened for Howard Jones at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, NY. Cryptic Rock says
"Rose harkened back to the best female acts of the ’60s and ’70s as she gave off the vibe of an edgy Carole King, the sharp wit of Rickie Lee Jones, and the power and confidence of a seasoned Diana Ross."
Melody attributes her unique vocal style to her various musical upbringings. She trained classically in opera for nine years, and studied jazz for seven. Upon receiving her M.A. in music composition, Melody continued to work on her craft as a singer-songwriter, and subsequently released her E.P. in February 2015.
Her recent single “Lightning Strikes” received rave reviews, peaking at position 5 in the Hot 100 Charts on LLUVIA FM Radio in Spain, leading Good Times Magazine to say, “It’s a light, airy, and sexy love song; it moves along with a pleasing, lightly rocking pace...All in all, given the solid groove and the great instrumental performances as well, this single is a tasteful triumph.”
Music Magazine UK raves, “Soul is definitely one thing that Melody has no shortage of, and you’ll be sure to listen again and again to gain an insight in to this young up-and-coming artist.” Stay tuned for more from Melody Rose!
