“I was always musical, I was always listening to the radio. I didn’t really follow any one type, I absorbed it all. I grew up dancing: ballet, tap and jazz. And with dancing there is a different style of music for each dance form. With ballet it was classical, tap was mostly Broadway show tunes and jazz dancing had the pop and rock. So, I’ve been influenced by a lot of different styles of music.”
Raised on the North Shore of Vancouver, Rose Ranger initially studied dance and theatre, but found herself immersed in music when she picked up the guitar and began writing her own songs. After spending a year in the studio writing and recording, Rose released her debut album and struck a distribution deal with Pacific/Warner Music. The multi-talented artist’s new single “Beautifully Broken” has been receiving airplay on Top 40 Hit Radio in Canada, Stingray Digital Radio and her single was nominated in the 2015 Independent Music Awards for Best Pop Song.
