Rose M. has captured the essence of vocal delivery that some say reminds them of the range and texture of Sarah Vaughn; the joyful and playfulness of Ella Fitzgerald; the foreboding pain of Billie Holiday; and the regal articulation of Lena Horne.
At the age of 16, Rose formed an R&B singing group with three girlfriends. The group was discovered by R&B singing duo Sam & Dave, who offered them an opportunity to record a demo at Capitol Records. Once the demo was completed, they were offered a recording contract. Years later, Rose was introduced to Marvin Gaye. Through that association, Rose was often the guest of Marvin’s during recording sessions at Motown and witnessed great songs in-the-making such as “What’s Going On”. That exposure led to a working relationship with Motown producer, Hal Davis, who gave Rose the opportunity to sing recording demos of songs he had written to pitch to already signed female artists at Motown.
