Kaylee Rose’s~ “Artist Spotlight”!!!

            Kaylee Rose’s music journey is a result of “trial by fire.” On the first day of Rose’s freshman year, her dad picked her up from high school and took her to a local dive bar. Rose took the stage at Ann O’Malley’s in St. Augustine, FL, and she played three cover songs. She was then offered a paid gig right on the spot.

            Rose is from Miami, she grew up submersed in different musical styles and cultures which influenced her distinctive brand of country music. As a kid Rose was a hip-hop dancer with goals of performing professionally, Rose’s dad was the one who first saw her musical talent. Her dad bought her first guitar when she was only 11 years old and her family was moving from Miami to St. Augustine around the same time. Rose also mentions that “St. Augustine is a small town and that she had hard time making friends at first so she started pouring her thoughts into lyrics and writing her own music, and after taking a few lessons, she began teaching herself to play guitar.”

            From Rose’s first bar show, a star was born. At just 14 years old, Rose started marketing herself and booking shows all over St. Augustine after school and on weekends. Rose never said “no” to an opportunity while still handling both her schoolwork and her positions as a Dance Team Captain and Class President.

            After graduating from high school, Rose started to play 4 to 8 hours gigs every day to save up money to move to Nashville. One year later, in 2015, she hit the road for Music City where Rose had two shows booked for the day she arrived. Rose made ends meet by playing every week at Rock Bottom Brewery and The Row while also working at the Johnny Cash Museum’s gift shop. Rose counts both museum owner Bill Miller and Bart Herbison, the Executive Director of the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI) as key mentors in her growing music career.

            Rose has played over 1,000 live gigs since her first bar gig at 14 years old. She is also not scared to speak her mind. Her style of music is a festivity of life, love and clearness. Her music is also honest with no setbacks and not unlike the music of  her musical icons like Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson, Shania Twain and Beyoncé.

            Rose hopes her music is reaching all different type of people of the world and she wants to make a positive impact in people’s lives. Having her tunes sung back to her by a crowd who are moved by it is perhaps the most satisfying thing that she could ever hope for.

            On March 15, 2019 Rose latest single “Stuff” came out. “Stuff,” is available to listen and download both on Spotify and iTunes. If you would like to find out more about Kaylee Rose then check out her website at (https://www.iamkayleerose.com).
