Jessica Rose, a New Jersey native and singer/songwriter, started playing guitar at age 16.
Self-taught, she began by learning her favorite songs, but soon found herself constructing her own melodies and lyrics. Jessica wanted to share these original pieces with the world but knew that she had to refine her vocals before she could really put herself out there - she has since been writing, singing and recording nonstop.
Her musical capabilities have landed her jam sessions, work and recordings with the likes of Michael Lehman (Greg Allman, Luther Vandross, O-Town) Anthony Krizan (Spin Doctors), Ted Mason (Modern English), Ronnie Page (Fuel), and Jason Corsaro (Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, The Benjamin), to name a few.
She is one incredibly talented lady.
She also happens to be an old college friend of mine. And, this week, she is performing in the BREAK'N THROUGH 2010 Finals in New York.
Oh how I wish I could go.
If you are in the city though and looking for something to do this Thursday night, May 27th, check out Jessica Rose at the Gramercy Theatre and support the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
