Building Dreams

by Rose Mallett

Rose has captured the essence of vocal delivery that some say reminds them of the range and texture of Sarah Vaughn, the joy and playfulness of Ella Fitzgerald, the foreboding pain of Billie Holiday, and the regal articulation of Lena Horne.

Album Notes
Rose Mallett 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.

Rose Mallett was born in Chicago, Illinois. Rose began singing in elementary school as a part of the school chorus. Rose’s family relocated to Los Angeles.

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” and “Sexual Healing.” 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.

• Rose began singing professionally in various nightclubs in Los Angeles – as well as acting in musical theatre productions.

• In Las Vegas, she performed at the Riviera and MGM Grand Hotels with Ben Vereen and Susan Anton.

• Rose has done musical voice-overs for several movies, to include “Now and Then” a New Line Cinema film starring Christina Ricci, Demi Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, and Melanie Griffith.

• Rose appeared as herself in a singing role in “Guinevere” a Miramax film starring Stephen Rea.

• Recorded America the Beautiful for audio presentation on Public Television stations KQED/San Francisco, and KPBS/San Diego.

Every weekend, for five years, Rose was the featured jazz vocalist at a New Orleans eatery in Montclair, CA, The Crescent City; and performed weekends for 2 ½ years at Tokyo Tokyo Japanese Restaurant located in Ontario, CA – visit website calendar for dates.

Rose has received exceptional training from Dick Grove School of Music; Roger Love, vocal coach; and vocal/stage performance instruction from Phil Moore, former orchestra director at Universal Studios, who once taught actress legend, Dorothy Dandridge, and Ron Hasley.

Building Dreams
Excellent collection of songs, both jazz standards, two oustanding pop tunes (best rendition of It's Impossible I've ever heard) and the original title song by Ms. Mallett.
Her voice is silky and mellow and does indeed
have essences of Ella and Sarah. Love her lower register especially. Buy it --- you'll be a fan too!.
