The best lyrics are always based on personal experience and Jennifer’s tend to touch on life, death, conquering the unknown, and, much like Jennifer, served with a side of playful attitude. But underlying the stories are messages of inspiration & empowerment, of living life on your own terms, overcoming whatever or whoever attempts to keep you down, of believing in miracles & dreams-come-true, but more importantly, being the catalyst that makes them come true. Life IS the journey and the size of the obstacles define how great your achievements. If you can see it, you can achieve it. And the stars in the sky burn very clearly these days.
As always, each of Jennifer’s lyrics are woven with a well-defined soundtrack in her mind. As a classically trained vocalist with a 3+ octave range, Jennifer likes her rock melodic using a wide dynamic range with soaring melodies and anthemic choruses. For “Faith, Love & Rock ‘n Roll’ the music will be modern rock with occasional elements of hard rock, blues and punk. If you listen closely you may also hear an occasional nod to a few recently discovered influential sounds from the 70’s.
From a very early age music was everything to me. There was nothing else that I cared so deeply about. It was more than just a way for me to express myself whenever I was happy, sad, lonely, love struck, angry, etc. I never thought about fame, only how amazing it would be to make my whole world about music. When you care that strongly about anything you simply know… there is no option other than to dedicate your life to it.
Although I am a classically trained vocalist and have performed & recorded in a dozen different genres, I love Rock! Rock comes with a different attitude than other genres. Rock represents strength, an attitude that says "I live my life for ME, on MY own terms. And if you don't like it, you can kiss it!" As a female artist it is important to me that I write songs that appeal to both sexes and that I write with a strong opinion & stance.

I hope soon to be touring full time with a great group of musicians. I want to bring high energy, fist pumping, sing-along rock anthems to venues in the US and Europe. I can’t tell you how exciting it is to hear from so many new friends & fans, almost half of them from Europe & Japan.

Jennifer Rose was born & raised near the sun-splashed shores of San Diego. Her first public appearance as a singer was a spontaneous event at the age of three when she snuck away from her parents at a mall and was later found standing on a bench singing to a growing crowd. There were many more appearances over the years, most much more organized. At the age of 16 Jennifer joined her first regularly gigging band performing in the bars of San Diego. This was her induction into the world as a full time singer. For many years Jennifer pursued her training and performing up & down the coast of southern California and as far away as Toronto, Canada.
In 2007, Warner Bros. Records NY contacted Jennifer. After two days of meetings and discussions both parties had outlined a verbal plan to move forward. Shortly after this Warner cut most of their A&R staff, and with it, all artists in the pipeline.

Disappointed but determined, this was the catalyst that triggered Jennifer Rose to turn her demo into her first full length CD, “Alone & Unsupervised”. With much of the lyrical content completed, the ten song CD was co-written and recorded over ten days in New York & New Jersey.

Magazine interviews include Muen Magazine and Metal Pit in the US, Power Play magazine in the UK, Hard Metal Forces magazine in Japan, and Legends Magazine in Canada.
