Listen to Battery
When singer/songwriter V. Rose was only 8 years old, she prayed a few earnest words that ended up forever shaping her life.
A burgeoning talent who regularly joined the church choir onstage and played impromptu concerts in the family living room, V.Rose asked God for the gift of songwriting.
Not interested in merely singing the words that someone else has written, V. Rose knew she had something to say, too, and asked God for the ability to communicate just that.
“I ended up writing my first three songs the very next day,” V. Rose shares. “I don’t know how good they were, of course, but it was still an accomplishment. I knew God heard and had answered my prayer.”
Now just 23 years old, nothing makes V. Rose happier than seeing the fruits of many years of prayer, reflection and creativity culminate in her self-titled solo debut.
An engaging fusion of current pop, rock and techno sounds, V. Rose’s music will, no doubt, appeal to fans of Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. Maintaining her commitment to thinking outside the box, however, the songs still have V. Rose’s distinctive artistic stamp.
Beyond the album’s decidedly addictive beats, however, is a powerful clarion call for listeners to embrace their true identity, rather than looking for affirmation from the opposite sex, popularity or the right pair of jeans.
With the relatable conviction of someone who’s been there, rather than an unattainable ideal, V.Rose’s current radio singles including “Not So Average” and “Battery."
“With ‘Not So Average,” I talk about how models aren’t really models when they’re not modeling. They aren’t these perfect people who walk around all perfectly spray tanned with perfect hair and makeup,” V.Rose shares. “We’re all deceived by the media, and we spend so much time in the mirror trying to be perfect. And since this is something I wish I would’ve heard when I was younger, I want to celebrate how God made us all different. That way, we can become more comfortable with ourselves and truly shine.”
Combining her passion for people with a soundtrack that you’ll be singing along with in no time flat, V.Rose’s album is an example of how substance and style can truly—and meaningfully—co-exist, the reason V. Rose has always loved music in the first place.
“Music is my love, it always has been, and that’s because it has the ability to connect with people like nothing else"--V. Rose says.
