Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

I grew up with music and it’s always been a big part of my life. I started taking piano and guitar lessons when I was 6 and I always loved to sing. I’ve always been into songwriting, recorded my first song when I was 8 and instantly fell in love with the process of it.

Introduce us to you and your musical history.

I’m ROS!E, 20 years old and I’m from Stuttgart, Germany. I started writing my own songs at 13 and I’ve released my own music since 2018. My new single “Made Myself Cry” will be my second single on Spotify.

What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?

Actually, I think it was a song my dad had written. He used to play it to me when I was young and taught me how to play it. It made me want to write my own songs.

Tell us Two truths and a lie about you?

I cannot whistle, I’m afraid of heights and I have an irrational fear of lifts.

I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it.

My next release “Made Myself Cry” is out on March 6th. It’s a personal song about not having the sweet “Teenage Romance” you always see in the media, what it feels like to not have romantic interactions and experiences as a teenager, and how it affects one and future relationships. It shows how teenage romances are romantacised and addresses the pressure young people feel to be in relationships and feel left out, or as if there’s something wrong with them if they’re not.

Talk me through the thought process of the new tune.

I’ve always felt like I’ve been behind in life and like I’ve missed out on something important, just because I’ve never had a “Teenage Romance”, so I’ve had this specific topic in mind and wanted to write a song for everyone who can’t relate to classic love songs because they’ve never experienced it themselves.

What was the recording process like?

I wrote the song in my bedroom, recorded it in the same week, and produced it at my home studio.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

No, I don’t think so.

What was the worst experience on stage?

I will never forget falling off the stage while performing in a musical play as a kid. Lucky for me, most people didn’t see it.

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.

I’m a terrible dancer.

What makes you stand out as an artist?

My unique style and sound and my energetic personality.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

I want to thank everyone who listens to my music and supports me. I appreciate and love you all!
